Bad News Comes in Threes? eNom Founder Paul Stahura Leaves Demand Media

This may go down as the most memorable Friday since I've been in the domain business. In earlier posts today I reported that Pete Lamson, NameMedia Senior VP (and General Manager of their Domain Marketplace including the AfternicDLS and BuyDomains) had left the company last week and that we received word that their Senior VP for Direct Search, Brian Carr, had also departed. 

Now Paul Stahura, the man who founded eNom.com (and sold the company to Demand Media four years ago) has told his Facebook friends that he has left Demand where he had stayed on as President after selling eNom. 

Stahura wrote, "After much thought, and 12 years after founding eNom, I’ve decided to join the ranks of eNom alumni. Demand Media, the company I sold eNom to nearly four years ago, is a great company and will be even greater in the years to come. Truly “going big”… Huge. The board, the management team, the employees - everyone – our customers, our services, are top notch. Demand is still in the first innings, but its time for me to move on. I look forward to working with Demand in the future, just not as an employee, and to keeping in touch with you all. Very best of luck to everyone at eNom and Demand Media! So long for now, Paul."

When I say bad news comes in threes, I don't mean these developments are necessarily bad news for the individuals who are moving on to new chapters in their lives. I mean it is bad news to see three executives of this caliber leaving their companies and their daily interaction with the domain community. That is bad news for the industry, but I am hopeful that all of them will continue to be involved in our space in one way or another in the years ahead.
