Three Familiar Faces Added to Executive Team at Public Interest Registry/.ORG

A few days ago we published an article about domain industry veteran Jon Nevett's new role as President and CEO at the Public Interest Registry (the non-profit organization behind the .ORG extension), a position Jon assumed in December. Today we got word that Nevett has expanded his executive team by adding three more well established industry leaders to an all-star line up at PIR. 

Nevett, who co-founded Donuts (the world's largest operator of new gTLD domains), reached into the Donuts talent pool to get his new Vice President of Business Affairs, Anand Vora


Anand has been the Director of Business Development at Donuts for the past five years. Nevett filled the Chief of Staff position by bringing in Judy Song-Marshall who has been in the business for over a decade, most recently as the Director of Registry Services at industry giant Neustar. New Chief Technology Officer Joe Abley rounds out the power trio, coming on board after more than 20 years of experience working with internet infrastructure in a variety of capacities including in the domain name system.  Joe's many high profile positions have included serving as an Infrastructure Scientist for Afilias and as a Director of Domain Names System Operations at ICANN.

An interesting side note - this is a homecoming for Anand Vora. He got his start in the domain industry as an MBA intern at PIR in 2009 and made such an impression they hired him full time - first as Product Management Specialist, followed by a bigger role as Channel Manager for Asia. In 2014 Donuts came calling and Anand spent the next five years helping build that groundbreaking company.

Nevett said, "Our latest executive appointments are some of the most well-respected professionals in the domain industry and true experts in their respective fields. I'm thrilled to welcome them to the Public Interest Registry team and am confident they will help us achieve our goals while, most importantly, upholding the impressive legacy of the .org domain."
