.ORG COO Discusses Priorities With DailyVista, Pursuit of .NGO Domain

Manager of .ORG, the world's third largest top-level domain — has appointed telecom veteran Nancy Gofus as its chief operating officer. She will oversee marketing, sales, product and strategy functions, and work with Chief Executive Officer Brian Cute to expand PIR's global presence and further grow the .ORG domain in existing and new markets.

Gofus is coming on board as PIR pursues the proposed .NGO (non-governmental organization) domain extension.

Gofus, who currently serves as the board chair of the national board of Volunteers of America, served as senior vice president of global product management for Verizon Communications in 2009 and chief marketing officer at Verizon Business from 2006 to 2008.

The .ORG domain has more than nine million domain names registered worldwide. Reston, Va.-based PIR was founded by the Internet Society in 2002.

In an interview with DailyVista, Gofus discusses how she will utilize her blend of nonprofit, marketing and communications expertise to grow .ORG's presence.
