Paul Nicks Moves Up to President, Domains at GoDaddy After Guiding Booming Aftermarket There 

It was great to see news that came out late Friday afternoon about Paul Nicks being promoted to President, Domains at industry giant GoDaddy. Paul has been with the company since 2007 and for the past six years has served as Vice President of Aftermarket. In that role he has been instrumental in the dramatic growth GoDaddy has seen in their aftermarket domain sales efforts - a category that has become one of the company's most  important revenue sources. Along the way, Paul has always been an advocate for the domain investment community and has fostered a more professional environment in the sector that has helped it achieve a considerably higher level of credibility in the business and regulatory worlds. 

Nicks has never been one for personal fanfare and his appointment to GoDaddy's top level of management seems to have followed form as I've seen no formal press release about it (Elliot Silver at DomainInvesting.com posted the first report I saw, followed soon after by additional reporting at DomainNameWire.com). When your work is consistently that good it speaks for itself. We have always appreciated it and this smart move by GoDaddy shows they have as well.
