Media Options Hires Tess Diaz

I’ve been working with Go Daddy’s Brad Larson for a number of years, and he’s always been able to help me when I need something done. When Brad is out of the office, I generally speak with another Executive Accounts manager who fills in without any hitches. Go Daddy has done a great job of hiring and training representatives to be responsive and knowledgeable about domain names and related topics.

When Brad has been unavailable, Tess Diaz was one of my goto people for assistance at Godaddy. She was able to answer questions and offer customer support, as if she was my dedicated account representative. She has been a friendly and dependable voice when I need assistance.

I just received word that Tess has been hired by Media Options in a Business Development role. Tess will be working with Media Options’ clients as well as helping to build out some of the web company’s properties.

I spoke with Andrew Rosener about the hire, and interestingly, it was Tess who got Andrew involved in the domain industry in the first place. According to Andrew, I was just buying domain names for fun until Tess told me about the whole industry that was out there just waiting for me.

Clearly Andrew has made the most of his time in the industry, as he has built one of the leading domain na e brokerages practically on his own.

I think hiring Tess will help Andrew grow his business, and I look forward to working with Tess on my acquisitions and sales.

Press Release is below:
