Epik and MMX make key hires.
Two familiar faces in the domain name industry have new homes.
Joseph Peterson, who also writes for Domain Name Wire, was hired as Director of Operations at Epik. Joseph is one of the most analytical people I know. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about him over the several years he’s written for this site, it’s that he doesn’t accept anything less than the best He’s incredibly thorough. I guess that comes from being a former submarine officer in the U.S. Navy!
Fortunately, Joseph will still be able to write his great data-driven pieces for this site.
The other hire is MMX (formerly known as Minds + Machines) picking up Victor Pitts as Director of Premium Sales. Victor has been in the industry for longer than I can count. He cut his teeth at Moniker and worked for Above.com. He will be responsible for selling premium domain names across MMX’s new top level domain name portfolio. His deep industry connections, as well as his experience outside the domain industry, seem like a good fit.
Congratulations to Joseph, Victor, Epik and MMX.
