Adam Eisner, General Manager of Registry Services at the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA), posted a job opportunity that might be of interest to someone who has domain name industry experience and expertise. CIRA is looking to hire a General Manager for the .CA extension:
The job opportunity is listed on the Career page within the CIRA website, and it refers people to Keynote Search, the executive search company managing the hiring process. Here’s an excerpt from the job listing describing the GM role:
“Based in Ottawa, and reporting directly to the President & CEO, the General Manager of .CA, will be responsible for managing all aspects of daily operations and business development within the .CA business unit.
As a General Manager, you will rely on your leadership skills and superior business acumen to create new strategies to grow the business through customer acquisition and marketing innovation while strengthening internal processes, systems, and overall operations. It is also highly critical in this role that you prioritize being actively present within the business unit, building a roadmap to enhance innovation and revenue growth, reflective of the CIRA mandate.”
The person hired for this role will become a part of the CIRA Executive Leadership Team.
I am not sure if domain industry experience is a requirement for this role, but a “[s]trong understanding of domain services” is listed under the skills and experience section of the job listing.
The .CA extension is quite prominent in Canada, and this leadership opportunity might be a good fit for someone who has extensive domain industry experience.
