Top Level Domain Holdings Limited ("TLDH" Or The "Company"): Peter Dengate Thrush Appointed As Chairman

LONDON, July 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

 

The Directors of Top Level Domain Holdings Limited (AIM: TLDH.L), the only publicly traded company focused exclusively on acquiring and operating new generic top-level domains ( " gTLD " ), are delighted to announce that Mr Peter Dengate Thrush has been appointed Executive Chairman of the Company with immediate effect. Mr Dengate Thrush was until recently the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (" ICANN"), where in June 2011 he led the ICANN Board to approve the programme to create new gTLDs.  

Antony Van Couvering, CEO of TLDH, said:

"Peter will be an outstanding asset to TLDH. Peter and I have worked together as ICANN participants since its inception, and I am very pleased to welcome him as our Executive Chairman. Peter championed successfully the approval of the new gTLD programme at the highest levels and with Peter on board I have every confidence we will achieve the same success at TLDH. I can't think of a better addition to our team - Peter is a superstar in our field, and we are delighted to have him at the helm."

New Chairman Peter Dengate Thrush said:

"I am delighted to be welcomed to this first-class team, which has had an extensive and productive involvement with the new gTLD programme and which has stood out as innovative, bold, and effective.  New gTLDs represent a major opportunity for the Company and its investors, for TLD applicants and for the Internet community, and I welcome the chance to make a contribution."

"The new gTLD programme is a very significant evolution in how we understand and navigate the Internet and as a result, the creation of every web site will involve a real choice of top-level domain, and every email sent will reinforce that choice.  I am delighted to join a company that understands that opportunity."
