DigitalTown gets new leadership as it works on a new business plan.
Former ICANN CFO Kevin Wilson has joined DigitalTown as Chief Financial Officer. He is also taking a seat on the board.
Wilson was CFO of ICANN from 2007-2011. He was also the initial CFO and VP of Finance at new top level domain company Donuts.
Sam Ciacco is the latest CEO of the company after serving in consulting roles for the past year.
DigitalTown is a pink sheets company that has taken on a lot of different business ideas. Over the past couple of years it seems to have jumped on every possible buzzword and trend to launch local city sites. Its marquee one was Austin.city, which currently has a security certificate error.
The company is relevant to the domain name industry because it owns a large portfolio of domain names and has agreements with new TLD companies to register a certain number of domains.
Rob Monster of Epik was CEO until late last year. A new CEO took over and left within a few months.
It seems that Ciacco and Wilson have a new idea for DigitalTown. We’ll call it DigitalTown 3.0.
Its website says “Stay tuned for exciting announcements regarding the future of Digitaltown”.
