Big Changes at Sedo Bring Promotions for Two Top Managers - Dima Beitzke Becomes Global CSO, Christian Voss Now CMO - New CFO Also Comes Onboard 

Domain industry giant Sedo announced some major structural changes to the company's management team this morning - changes that bring promotions to two well-known managers as well as a key addition to the leadership team. 

Dima Beitzke will assume management of both the North American and International sales teams as Chief Sales Officer (CSO) Global based in Sedo’s headquarters in Cologne, Germany. Dima joined Sedo in 2013 bringing with him a wide breadth of management experience in online marketing and sales which has enabled him to lead Sedo’s international expansion, further growing their sales distribution network into Asia as well as other emerging markets. Effective Friday (February 5, 2016), Solomon Amoako will be stepping down from his position as North American CSO due to personal family reasons.

Sedo’s focus on strengthening its marketing initiatives both inside and outside the domain industry will be further supported by the promotion of Christian Voss to Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). Voss joined Sedo in 2013 as Director Marketing & PR, increasing the international awareness for the domain name market successfully ever since. In his role he will expand activities in both offices, Boston and Cologne

In addition to the adjustments within the Sedo sales and marketing teams, Barbara Stolz will take over the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) position from Torsten Hauschildt who will be returning to Sedo parent  United Internet Ventures as Senior VP of Finance and M&A. Sedo's announcement noted, "Stolz has profound know-how in shaping high-functioning financial organizations; before joining Sedo, Barbara was the CFO at QSC AG, a publicly listed telecommunications and technology company in Cologne, Germany."

With these structural changes implemented, Sedo’s CEO Tobias Flaitz is looking forward to a prosperous 2016 and beyond. “By continuing to occupy our management positions with experienced and proven experts, Sedo is well positioned to further expand its customer outreach and expertise within the domain name industry and also into other industries," Flaitz said. "Now more than ever, we’ll be able to coordinate our sales and marketing efforts in established markets like the U.S. and Europe as well as developing domain markets like China and India, under a more unified management team.”

Sedo (an acronym for “Search Engine for Domain Offers"), is a leading global domain marketplace and domain monetization provider. The company is headquartered in Cologne, Germany and also has a U.S. office in Boston. Sedo has assembled the world’s largest database of domain names for sale with more than 18 million listings. The success of Sedo's model has attracted a client base of more than 2 million domain professionals in 180 countries worldwide. 

The pioneering company has been an industry leader for more than 15 years. One of the earliest DN Journal Cover Stories back in 2004 detailed how the company began and quickly developed into a powerhouse that has stood the test of time.
