A few weeks ago, Domain Gang broke the news of an apparent staff shakeup at Domain Holdings. Theo Develegas reported that four employees were no longer listed on the Domain Holdings website: Alan Dunn, Giuseppe Graziano, Melissa Ucros, and Tracy Fogarty.
I recently learned that John Mauriello has been hired by Domain Holdings in the role of Managing Director. He will be responsible for the brokerage division of Domain Holdings.
John has considerable experience in the domain industry. John held a variety of positions at Snapnames and Moniker over a ten year period, primarily in a domain broker and broker management role. According to John’s LinkedIn profile, John helped to sell “over $50MM to start-ups, Fortune 500 companies, and domain name investors.” Some of the recent sales he listed on his LinkedIn profile include Hot.com, KK.com, EVE.com, Jackpot.com, Data.com, and Social.com.
In discussing this recent hire, Domain Holdings Group Chairman John Ferber had this to say:
“We are thrilled for John Mauriello to be joining Domain Holdings as Managing Director where he will be leading our brokerage division and taking us to the next level of growth. We have always had tremendous respect and admiration for John’s track record of success and accomplishments and feel so blessed to have him join our team.”
In addition to this hiring, I was also told the company also hired Keith Richter, a new sales manager who brings experience from outside the domain industry. He started working with the company a few weeks ago.
Domain Holdings already has a talented team, and with all of John’s domain industry and brokerage experience, I think this was a good hiring.
