Oversee.net®, the leader in Internet real estate, said today domain name industry innovator Craig Snyder has been named General Manager of the company's Registrar and Aftermarket division. He is responsible for management and growth of the company's SnapNames and Moniker businesses. Snyder starts immediately and reports to Peter Celeste, Oversee's Senior Vice President for Domain Services.
Snyder comes to Oversee following a three-year tenure as CEO of Internet REIT, where he successfully rebuilt the company's senior management ranks and closed a $30 million round of equity financing. Prior to Internet REIT, he co-founded and was Executive Vice President of Marchex, where he led its Enhance Interactive, goClick and TrafficLeader business units.
"Craig has the right blend of experience and knowledge to assume leadership of SnapNames and Moniker," said Celeste. "Not only does he understand the industry deeply, he has extensive experience in managing multiple lines of business. Craig is a very strong fit for this role."
Snyder inherits two businesses that are long-established and well known to thousands of customers. SnapNames, founded in 2000, offered the first commercially available technology for "back-ordering" a currently registered domain name, helping customers register names of interest when they became available again. Moniker, one of the world's best-known and most secure registrars, was formed in 1998 and offers registration, management, escrow and valuation services. The integrated divisions also cooperate to conduct well-regarded and successful online and live domain name auctions.
Snyder is enthusiastic about his new role. "SnapNames and Moniker are two of the most trusted names in the industry," he said. "The division's technology, sales, marketing and operations teams are outstanding, and I'm looking forward to helping the businesses grow and extend their client bases," he said.
