BrandIT Makes Another Big Move - Jochen Kieler Comes On Board as Partner and Chief Strategy Officer

Last month I told you about a Europe-based leader in the corporate domain management business - BrandIT - acquiring popular domain brokerage company Igloo.com. In another big move designed to expand the company's reach worldwide BrandIT has just announced a new partnership with highly respected domain industry veteran Jochen Kieler who will also serve as BrandIT's Chief Strategy Officer

Kieler most recently served as the Chief Sales Officer and Executive Vice President of Business Development at European domain powerhouse Key-Systems. Kieler has specialized in International Corporate Management with over 16 years of experience in the Domain and Internet Industry with Key-Systems, InternetX and others.  Also known as an advisor to brand owners, domain investors and registries, Kieler is a regularly featured speaker at domain and hosting events around the world.  He was also a member of the Advisory-Team/Sales & Marketing at nTLDstats. Jochen is also the Co-Organizer of the German roundtable, Stammtisch.Domains and Co-Owner of NoticiasDeDominios.com, the best source of information for the Spanish-speaking domain community.  

At BrandIT, Kieler will be overseeing BrandIT’s international expansion and help strengthen operations as they grow.

The company, with clients worldwide and offices in Switzerland (HQ), Germany, United Kingdom, Denmark, Brazil and North America is known for its Domain Portfolio Services and expertise in Online Brand Protection and Enforcement and well as Legal in Digital.

BrandIT CEO Jesper Knudsen said, “We are so excited to welcome someone of Jochen’s caliber to BrandIT as we always seek to attract the most highly skilled people in the domain industry. Adding his expansive knowledge is crucial to continue and maintain the reputation BrandIT has as a leading provider in the Domain Industry."

Kieler's arrival is the latest example of BrandIT's focus on attracting the talents of industry leaders, a campaign that previously resulted in the addition of Legal in Digital expert Caroline Perriard and continued with Amanda Waltz and Tessa Holcomb coming on board in last month’s acquisition of Igloo.com. 

In addition to creating a distinctive presence in his home country - Germany - Kieler will help bring the current blending of Igloo services into the BrandIT portfolio to a successful conclusion. Kieler said, “I have been following BrandIT since it’s foundation and have long admired their excellent reputation and growth. The first big important step in going global was the Igloo.com acquisition and I now look forward to partnering with BrandIT.  Our vision is to have the best reputation in the industry world-wide.”
