LAS VEGAS, Nevada, January 23, 2017 /MMX/ — Leading top-level domain name registry MMX (formerly known as Minds + Machines) today announced the appointment of domain industry veteran Solomon Amoako to the company’s senior leadership team.
Taking up the newly-created role of Vice President Channel Management, Mr Amoako is responsible for MMX’s sales operations in the Americas and Europe, with a special focus on accelerating the company’s commitment to partnership-building and premium sales activity.
MMX CEO Toby Hall said, “Solomon brings a broad and valuable perspective to the MMX team. More importantly, he shares the same vision for the Group as our entire team does – that we succeed when our partners succeed.”
Prior to joining MMX, Mr Amoako was Chief Sales Officer and SVP, Americas at leading domain name marketplace Sedo, where he led business development, account management and brokerage teams. He also served as Vice President of Business Development for the Rightside Group, and Director of Global Sales & Account Management at the wholesale Internet services company, Tucows.
“I’ve been an admirer of MMX since the company’s 2016 restructure,” said Mr Amoako. “MMX has repeatedly demonstrated to the industry that it is serious about partnering, and over recent weeks I’ve seen that the entire MMX organization is singularly focused on partnering for success. In particular, the solid work MMX is putting into end-user education is exemplary. The approach MMX is taking is the best I’ve seen at any domain registry, and I’m enormously proud to join the team.”
Mr Amoako’s specific remit is to lead sales initiatives for the Americas and Europe, to drive adoption and distribution through the registrar ecosystem, to support the domain investor community, and further grow TLD-based vertical marketplaces. He will improve operational efficiencies in the company’s sales team and accelerate communication with partners. As part of this activity MMX expects to be making further business development hires in both the US and Europe in the coming months.
MMX (LSE:MMX) is a leading owner and operator of new generic top-level domains (“gTLDs”). As a ‘pure play’ registry business, MMX does not compete with its sales partners or registry services provider partners. As of January 2017, MMX has more than 830,000 domains under management across a portfolio of 28 top-level domains such as .law, .london, .vip and .work.
