Your Favorite Account Manager In The Domain Industry Is…


Last week, I asked you to nominate your favorite account manager / account representative in the domain industry. I was very happy to see that nearly 30 dedicated individuals from more than 15 companies were nominated by happy clients. Several account managers were nominated by more than one person.

Over 1,000 votes were cast in the poll, and I am happy to announce that the winner of the $500 cash prize is Brian Kleiner from Afternic, who was first nominated by Mike “Zappy” Zapolin. There were three people who nominated Brian, and his clients were very supportive of him in this vote.

Neil Kavanaugh, Vice President of Sales and Customer Service at Afternic, had great things to say about Brian:

Brian eats, sleeps and breathes the domain business. It comes as no surprise to me that he has been recognized by his customers and colleagues for his outstanding efforts. Brian came to AfternicDLS with a tremendous background in web and lead-gen businesses, and he’s been able to leverage that experience to help his loyal customer base identify great domain opportunities. He has also been a great role model to his peers on the AfternicDLS sales team who have learned from his unique skill set and dedication to his customers.

There are a two large companies I also want to commend. NameMedia, whose Afternic, Buy Domains, and SmartName business units had a total of seven nominees (Aaron Visaggio, Christina Forker, Dave Helgeson, Molly Reimer, Patrick Calvoni, and Rich Green. Go Daddy also had seven nominees (Brad Larson, Tess Diaz, George Eblacker, Marc Gawith, Brett Meyers, Pete Davis, and Russ Dailey).

It was great to see so many nominees and so many companies represented in this poll. Keep up the good work and great client service. Congratulations to Brian!

    Congrats to all the nominees. They all do a great job. Glad to see Brett Myers up there. He’s my account Rep at Godaddy and he handles my yelling pretty well.

    Congrats to Brian and to Elliot for putting this out there. I’m a relative newbie in this dynamic and demanding industry and so I watched this from the sidelines, with not enough experience to nominate or vote… and I must say, what a great contest to have put out there, what a great response from the domainers out there and hats off to all those nominated, earning deserved respect for what you do!
