Internet domain group CentralNic (LON:CNIC) has appointed tech mergers and acquisitions specialist Mike Turner as the internet domain firm’s new non-executive chairman.
Turner, a partner and head of technology media and communications at law firm Taylor Wessing, joins the company immediately
Chief executive Ben Crawford says Turner’s “deep expertise and vast network” will be invaluable to the company as it pursues organic and acquisition-led growth.
“Mike Turner is one of the best-known figures in European and Trans-Atlantic Technology M&A. His experience in leading and advising on major transactions is matched by his passion for the technology sector”
Outgoing chairman John Swingewood has resigned to pursue other business interests, CentralNic said.
Crawford added: “John Swingewood’s chairmanship saw CentralNic grow from a small private company to an AIM-listed global player in the domain name industry.
“The board thanks him for his service and wish him the best for his future endeavors.”
