Jonathan Tenenbaum is New COO of Media Options

Media Options, the domain brokerage founded by Andrew Rosener, announced that it hired Jonathan Tenenbaum as its Chief Operating Officer. Jonathan had been working as Chief Privacy Officer at since October of last year. Jonathan is probably most well known in the domain investment space from his time as General Manager of NameJet, which is owned and operated by

The press release I received is below, but the part that caught my attention was from Jonathan’s quote:

“With several new and exciting partnerships on the horizon and the most successful brokerage team in the industry already in place, MediaOptions is well-positioned to accelerate into the future, and I’m looking forward to taking the company to the next level.”

I am interested to see what partnerships are on the horizon. I can think of several opportunities for partnering within the domain industry and beyond, so it will be interesting to see what is forthcoming.

Andrew and his team have done a great job of building his brokerage business. I regularly come across domain names that appear to have changed hands, and after a quick bit of research, I find that the domain names were likely brokered by Media Options. I think hiring an experienced executive like Jonathan as COO shows how serious the company is about its growth plan.
