Reason for the nomination

Tomás has been actively engaged in Internet development for 20 years. Throughout his distinguished career, he has always supported the evolution and improvement of the use of the Internet and its resources in the LACNIC region. For the past seven years, he has attended LACNIC and LACNOG meetings and this has allowed him to broaden his knowledge of the main actors involved in the LACNIC region in particular and those involved at global level (ICANN, ISOC, IETF, ARIN, RIPE etc.). His technical and political knowledge of the Internet in Latin America makes Tomás a valuable candidate for the LACNIC's Board, where he will be able to contribute more closely to the decisions that shape the future of our IP networks.
