Dan Warner, one of the most public faces of Dark Blue Sea has left his position as COO of DBS (parent company of Fabulous.com). Warner had been with DBS for over 7 years.
Warner, probably best known for his in-depth data analysis and his leadership role at Fabulous.com, has been a featured speaker at many domain industry conferences. More recently, Warner and DBS introduced a new angle on the domain aftermarket with the Domain Distribution Network.
Dark Blue Sea announced key personnel changes just 2 months ago. CEO Richard Moore is stepping back from that position on July 1 . Moore announced he would not be seeking to renew his contract but would stay on board as a 1/2 time executive director. Dark Blue Sea CFO, Gregory Platz, will be taking over as CEO.
Warner told DNN, “DBS was a good company to work for and I think they are still Fabulous. It was just time for me to do something new. I’m focusing on projects of growth, development and innovation with active interests and roles in the domain channel. I’m diversifying into more active “hands on” development projects, and as a free agent I can consult and develop just about anything.”
We were happy to hear that Warner planned to stay involved in the domain space. Rumor has it that he will be actively blogging at DanWarner.com in the coming weeks. We hope to have him as a guest contributor to DNN in the future.
