Go Daddy has appointed Blake Irving, formerly of Microsoft and Yahoo, as its new CEO.
He’s the fourth man to take the top spot at the market-leading registrar in the last 12 months.
Founding CEO Bob Parsons stepped aside for his protege COO Warren Adelman a year ago, but he too was replaced in August by the company’s new investors.
Irving was most recently chief products officer at Yahoo, but has spent most of his career as a Microsoftie, heading up the Windows Live platform at the tail end of his 15-year tenure.
He will take over from interim CEO Scott Wagner of KKR Ventures on January 7 next year.
