| Elliot Noss is president and chief executive officer of Tucows. Tucows challenged how software was distributed in the 1990s and how domain names were offered and managed in the 2000s, and is challenging how mobile phone service is provided today. For nearly twenty years, Elliot has loved and championed the Internet as the greatest agent of positive change the world has ever seen. Through his role at Tucows, his involvement in ICANN and his personal efforts, he has lobbied, agitated and educated to promote this vision and protect an Open Internet around the world. Elliot has been sitting in the same chair at Tucows for over fifteen years and finds every year more exciting than the previous!
