George Minardos, Founder and CEO of .BUILD, announced today that Tim Switzer, formerly of Neustar and DotGreen, is joining .BUILD as head of operations and registrar relations.
Switzer will team up with Minardos, Tom Brackey, ARI Services and the rest of the .BUILD team to bring the global building industry on-line via the .BUILD domain name.
Minardos commented, “We are excited to have Tim join us. He brings many years of experience and talent within the domain name industry. With his history of successful launches of other Top Level Domains (TLD), Tim will be instrumental in launching .BUILD. His reputation and business relationships with the global channel of the domain industry and especially Registrars, will serve us well as we move .BUILD thru its launch phase and as it becomes the on-line “go to” place for all building and construction businesses around the world”.
Switzer added “My decision to join the .BUILD team was based on both the opportunity to work with an industry that is as large as it is and also poised for change. The .BUILD team has done a great job to this point of getting .BUILD into its current Sunrise phase and I am eager to jump in and help keep that momentum going. The building industry represents over 10% of global GDP and the .BUILD domain name will give everyone associated with this industry the opportunity to identify and brand themselves clearly as to who they are and what they do”.
