Aussie domain registrar Melbourne IT has recruited three senior executives from elsewhere in the industry to bulk up its Digital Brand Services business.
SSL evangelist Tim Callan, formerly with VeriSign, has been appointed chief marketing officer. He moved to Symantec after the VeriSign security business changed hands, but left in May.
Lena Carlsson, Melbourne’s new VP of domain strategy, is a former Swedish civil servant and former vice-chair of ICANN’s Governmental Advisory Committee.
Rob Holmes has also been recruited from brand management rival Corporation Services Company as the new global director of brand protection services.
The hires all appear to have been made over the last few months and were announced in a press release today.
