Oxford Based Nominet UK, the not-for-profit internet organisation best known running for the .uk infrastructure, has today announced the appointment of Antonia Seymour to the role of Chief Commercial Officer (CCO).

Antonia is currently Vice President and Director of Business Development at John Wiley & Sons, a publishing and information services company. She will join Nominet in January 2014. The CCO role is responsible for managing Nominet’s existing route-to-market, including relationships with channel partners, and will also lead the company’s marketing and communications.

It is an important time for Nominet as the company has recently set out updates on a range of initiatives to build on its strengths as an internationally-respected domain name registry while responding to the challenges of a liberalised domain name market.

Antonia will report to Nominet Chief Executive, Lesley Cowley OBE. She will work closely with the company’s senior leadership team - Chief Operating Officer Eleanor Bradley and Chief Technology Officer Simon McCalla.

Lesley Cowley OBE, Nominet CEO said: “Antonia brings a wealth of business expertise both from the UK and the US. Her commercial leadership will prove vital as we look to evolve and grow our business in an increasingly challenging market. We’re pleased that Antonia will be joining us and we look forward to working with her to achieve our objectives.”

Antonia Seymour said: “I’m delighted to be joining Nominet at such an exciting time. I look forward to working with members, registrars, potential business partners and colleagues to help the business to grow and evolve for the future, while remaining true to its well-recognised public purpose credentials.”

Domain names are one of the key building blocks of the internet - an essential component of every email address and website. Millions of businesses and consumers now depend on Nominet’s services, which underpin a critical part of the internet economy.

Nominet is a private, not-for-profit business, responsible for the smooth and secure running of the .uk internet infrastructure. They were recently chosen by several brands and communities to launch and manage new top level domains such as .wales, .cymru and .bbc.
