Dark Blue Sea CEO Richard Moore Steps Down

Dark Blue SeaApril 1st is always a day full of fun at, but we were disappointed to read elsewhere about news at DomainNameWire which turned out not to be part of an April Fool’s joke.  As per a company press release (PDF), Dark Blue Sea CEO Richard Moore has announced that he will be stepping down as CEO.

Moore who has been CEO of DBS since 2001 will be stepping down from the position, but plans to stay involved with the company as an executive director on a 1/2 time basis.  His roles will be to focus on corporate strategy and development, investor relations and high level relationship management with major partners, customers and suppliers.

Dark Blue Sea CFO Gregory Platz will be taking over the CEO position effective July 1st, 2009. Platz has worked with the company for 1o years and in fact helped Dean Shannon found the company back in 1999. Moore told us that Platz “knows everything about the (DBS) domain business.”  Moore and the DBS board are very confident in Platz’s abilities to move the company forward.

We wish Richard and Dark Blue Sea the best during this transition.
