Known as "Pinky" to everyone in the business, Pinky has been involved in the domain name industry for 19 years, since 1996.
Pinky says he's "in the business of connecting ideas and people with appropriate resources and developing them into recurring revenue streams."
He's been involved at many levels --- as an entrepreneur, reseller, corporate registrar, retail registrar, registry, gTLDs, ccTLDs, new gTLDs, product manager, business development executive, and domain investor. Thus he brings deep, wide and substantial experience and registrar relations experience to the table.
He also serves as VP Strategy and Partner Relations with TLD Registry, operator of the .在线 (Dot Chinese Online) and .中文网 (Dot Chinese Website) internationalized top level domain name extensions (IDNs). Pinky has years of experience operating and executing in China, leveraging deep relationships with local registrars, government officials, and top domain investors.
In 2006, Pinky had the unique distinction of advising the founders and Board of Directors of the .mobi top level domain on marketing, sales and policy during their successful sunrise, landrush, and general registration launch periods. He assisted them with conception, development, marketing, promotion and execution of various .mobi domain services to targeted channels, including raising millions of dollars for the .mobi registry via auctions of its premium domain names.
Pinky co-founded two multinational domain name registrar and portfolio management companies that count the world’s most recognized trademark holders as clients—generating total revenues in the tens of millions of dollars.
