Meet the team
Some of our other key members of our team:
Luge joined NetNames as a fresh faced 26 year old having worked previously at Virgin Retail. Initially he was tasked with handling previously ignored and unusual ccTLD renewals as part of the Registrations team. In 2001 after an impressive first year with the company he was given responsibility for the newly created NetNames Renewals team which was quickly expanded as demand for their services grew.
Less than a year later the team was expanded to take in the Registrations area of the business and Luge became the manager in charge. Later in 2002 the NetNames Platinum Service offering was launched and this team took on the responsibility for transferring existing customers to the new flagship product. As part of this offering Luge created the process that we now know as NetNames Acquisitions.
In 2005 after passing the DENIC exam, and a year of running some of the largest and most important portfolios of Platinum clients, Luge was seconded to the NetNames New York office for six months. In 2007 after the company decided to restructure the USA operation, Luge was asked to head up the New York office.
