Scott Wagner goes from interim to permanent at GoDaddy.
Domain name registrar GoDaddy today announced that Scott Wagner is its new COO and CFO.
Wagner took over as interim CEO of the company last summer when Warren Adelman stepped down from the CEO position. He then vacated that position earlier this year to make way for new CEO Blake Irving.
Wagner worked for KKR for 13 years, recently as a member of KKR’s portfolio operations team. He became involved with GoDaddy after KKR joined with Silver Lake Partners and Technology Crossover Ventures to invest in the domain registrar in 2011. Much of his work has been focused on the company’s international strategy.
Previous CFO Mike Zimmerman will remain with the company as Executive Vice President of Finance, a company spokesperson confirmed to Domain Name Wire.
