Ram, who has been with Afilias for nearly 18 years, will be responsible for most of the day-to-day operations of Afilias and its global subsidiaries.  He will continue to report to Afilias’ President and CEO, Hal Lubsen while most all of Mr. Lubsen’ s previous direct reports will now report to Mr. Mohan. 

An Aflias press released noted, "Mr. Mohan’s appointment recognizes the pivotal role he has played in the development of Afilias and paves the way for continued growth for the company."

He was appointed Executive Vice President in 2008 and in that role the release added, "His leadership has helped Afilias earn the confidence of the operators of over 180 top level domains (including 14 country codes), and the successful management of over 20 TLDs owned by Afilias.
