Oliver Hope elected to Nominet Board

LONDON, UK - 23/05/2014: Host Europe Group today announces that Oliver Hope, Finance and Operations Director for the group Domains team, has been voted to the Nominet Board of Directors. As a Non-Executive-Director, Oliver will help to drive the direction of the UK Internet Registry, which now manages over 10 million domain names.

Oliver brings a wealth of Internet governance experience to the Board, as he has been working for some time with the global ICANN community and sits on the Executive Committee of the ICANN Accredited Registrar Stakeholder Group as elected Treasurer. With such wide-ranging experience, Oliver will be part of a team who are there to help Nominet adjust and adapt to the ever-changing domain marketplace.

Speaking after the announcement, Oliver said: "Maintaining the independence of the domain name space is vitally important for growth. In my role I hear concerns from a broad range of Registrars, from those who are very large to very small players, and I understand and can bring relevance to their issues. I hope the experience I bring will be valuable to Nominet in order to help them engage with the wider community.

"The past couple of years have been both challenging and exciting for Nominet and the UK name space and, as part of a committed Board of Directors, I look forward to the successful launch of .uk, .wales and .cymru, helping to shape Nominet to meet its challenges in the future."
