I just received a press release announcing that domain industry veteran Frank Michlick has joined Sedo. Many people know Frank as one of the founders of Domain Name News (DNN), although he has been involved with a number of companies in the domain space.
Frank will be working with the SedoMLS team as a Sales Engineer, where he will be handling the integrations with registrars, registries etc. I think it’s smart for Sedo to bring aboard an experienced domain investor like Frank.
Sedo Press Release:
