Berners-Lee went on to serve as director of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the World Wide Web Foundation.

Techopedia explains Tim Berners-Lee

Berners-Lee was the first person to combine all the existing protocols and concepts into a workable system for creating hypertext and hypermedia documents that could be accessed over the Internet. Instead of trying to control his invention, both CERN and Berners-Lee turned the development of the Web over to the wider community. Although access to the Internet is provided for a charge by service providers, once you have a connection, you can browse the Web freely thanks to Berners-Lee and CERN.
