It seems that 2017 is a tough year for Uniregistry. Many people have left the company.
It is not clear if these departures have been lay-offs or resignations. Or if this is normal for Uniregistry although a few people have said it is not.
2 comments left at my article about GoDaddy that has stopped offering Uniregistry extensions caught my attention:
- “Someone mentioned that uniregistry fired their exec staff, or cleaned office, is this true?”
- “It’s true they fired a lot of people. From the top all the way down.”
Yesterday I read about Bret Fausett leaving his General Counsel role at Uniregistry in July after nearly six years at the company. Bret had been one of the most vocal people from Uniregistry.
I did some research and found a few other people that have left Uniregistry this year besides Bret Fausett.
Napoleon Milá de la Roca seems to not be the Operations Engineer at Uniregistry any more. His profile was removed from the University website.
John Smrekar, Director of Operations / Lead Product Manager – Registrar & Marketplace, left in July 2017 after 5 years and 2 months with the company.
Alina Syunkova, Marketing Associate, left in June 2017 after 8 months.
Sevan Derderian left Uniregistry for Trellian (above.com) in February 2017.
Sean Landreth, Domain Broker, left the company in February 2017 after 2 years and 7 months.
Sean Love, Account Executive, left the company in March 2017, after 8 months.
I am sure that there are more as many people do not update their LinkedIn profile immediately or don’t have one at all. (or I simply missed them in my search)
There seems to be some trouble in paradise, i.e. the Cayman Islands, and Uniregistry.
Trouble (related or not with the departures) with Uniregistry (the registry) began in March 2017 when Frank Schilling announced large price increases in the Uniregistry extensions. You can follow the saga here:
