After big sale, Berkens resigns from domain consulting group.
Michael Berkens has resigned as a Director and officer of Right of the Dot, LLC, a consulting firm he co-founded with Monte Cahn.
Berkens recently updated his LinkedIn profile to reflect that he was no longer with the company, and I verified the move with him.
The move is not entirely surprising. Berkens recently sold the majority of his domain name portfolio to GoDaddy for an eight-figure sum. Part of his rationale for the sale was to spend less time working, so it doesn’t make sense to serve as a domain name consultant.
When the sale was announced, Berkens also said he’d blog less. He has dialed it down a bit, but I wouldn’t bet money on him shutting down TheDomains anytime soon.
