Kent Crispin has been involved with ICANN since before it was ICANN; he was Chairman of an initial Policy Advisory Board and a member of the POC, both of which were entities that foreshadowed the creation of ICANN itself.

Mr. Crispin was ICANN's first Technical Systems Manager, and when he began he had a staff of only one other person. He officially joined ICANN in 2002.[3] He has written vast amounts of code for ICANN; including work with LACRALO's servers which are automated to translate messages from English into Spanish. He worked on the recent audit of Whois servers.[4]
