Sedo Names New CEO - Michael Robrock Promoted to Top Spot  One Year After Coming On Board as COO 

Domain aftermarket giant Sedo appointed a new Chief Executive Officer today when COO Michael Robrock was elevated to the post following Matthias Conrad's decision to step down from the position for personal reasons. Conrad had been on the job since January 2019. Robrock joined Sedo as COO and a member of the Management Board just 13 months ago. During that time he has directed all of Sedo's  customer-facing departments including Sales and Operations. Going forward, Robrock and fellow board members Barbara Stolz and Hakan Ali will oversee the popular marketplace that attracts domains buyers and sellers from all over the world.

Robrock's ascension to CEO continues the upward trajectory the University of Munich graduate has been on throughout his 20-year business career. Over that time, that included CEO stints at both MixCon ag and Trendgroup GmBH, Michael developed a well-deserved reputation as a domain business, monetization and affiliate marketing expert. 

New Sedo CEO Michael Robrock  

Sedo Managing Director Hakan Ali said, "I would like to thank Matthias Conrad for his contribution to our company and wish him well for his professional and personal future. A new chapter is now starting for Sedo. In his position as CEO, Michael Robrock will set new impulses and add extensive experience to the domain industry. We will continue to steer the positive development of Sedo GmbH in the future together."
