The IAB would like to bring to the ITU-T's attention the appointment of Mr. Scott Mansfield as the new IETF Liaison Manager to the ITU-T. The IETF Liaison Manager to the ITU-T sees to the day to day aspects of the relationship with the ITU-T, provides guidance to the IESG, IAB, and the IETF as a whole on strategic matters involving both organizations. In addition, Mr. Mansfield will work closely with our other liaison managers to assure consistency of approach across technologies, as well as see that liaisons from the ITU-T to the IETF are appropriately allocated and responded to. We expect Mr. Mansfield to play a significant supporting role in strategic discussions between the IETF and ITU leadership. Mr. Scott Mansfield has over twenty of experience in software development and network management. He is a Principal Engineer in Ericsson’s DUIB Technology Network Architecture group. A long time technologist, Scott has built object-oriented workflow systems for the US Treasury Department, The United States Naval Reserve, Federal Express, and the United Parcel Service. Scott has also been the Lead Architect for Ericsson’s North American Mobile Backhaul Solutions, before moving into a position of Standards Engineer. Scott has been Ericsson’s MEF Coordinator for the past 5 years and is also an active contributor to the IETF and the ITU-T, and has been liaison manager from the IETF to ITU-T for MPLS for the past two years. The IAB thanks the outgoing Liaison Manager, Mr. Eliot Lear, for his valuable service. For the IAB, Russ Housley IAB Chair
