Outsourced Executive Team

Architelos executives, unlike many of its competitors, have actually built, launched and managed gTLDs. When you work with us, you work with seasoned senior executives, not junior staff. Combined, we have more than 30 years experience in the gTLD registry system, nearly twice as long as the entire history of the gTLD industry:

CEO Alexa Raad has both successfully launched a new gTLD as CMO of .mobi, and as CEO of .ORG, she led the registry to record growth.

COO John Matson co-authored a benchmark study (PDF) of past gTLD launches, against which new gTLD applicants must compare their plans in the application. He consulted with ICANN on its new gTLD program and has developed new business models that will be required for many gTLDs.

CFO Norbert Grey built the financial systems and managed the operations of .mobi, the most successful new gTLD of the last round. He understands the unique financial requirements for gTLDs and how they impact launch plans and a new gTLD’s sustainability.

CTO Michael Young helped build one of the largest back-end registry providers as VP of product development for Afilias. He has the detailed knowledge of how a registry must operate to succeed.
