Nominet has named Lesley Cowley’s replacement as CEO as Russell Haworth, a Thomson Reuters alum who’s spent much of 2014 working as a venture capitalist.

Russell was previously managing director of Thomson Reuters’ Middle East & Africa division.

Since January, he’s been a co-founder and partner at Saya Ventures, an investment company focused on early-stage technology companies.

“Russell will lead the organisation as it develops its core registry business, explores the potential of new technologies, and delivers on its commitment to ensuring the internet is a force for good,” Nominet said.

He’s set to join the .uk registry in January 2015.

He replaces Cowley, who resigned in May and earlier this month revealed several new jobs.
