About Pinky

Pinky Brand 8 Dec 2016_Headshot4x4BW

Hi there. I’m Pinkard Alan Brand. My family, friends and industry associates know me as ‘Pinky’.

I’ve been working in the domain name industry since 1996. I’ve worked extensively on the registry and registrar side of the business and have substantial international business and channel development and management experience.

I co-founded two DNS industry start-ups and sold them both to public companies—one to a Fortune 500 company.  I have wisdom to share from doing business in China since 1999 and by living and working in Ireland for five years.

I work with the DNS Global and RegistryOffice teams full-time spreading the good word about our Business Intelligence, Abuse Monitoring, Consulting and Brokerage services.  I’m fortunate to be involved with a killer team of respected domain and hosting services industry veterans located in Norway, Sweden, France, the U.K., Australia, and the USA.

I’ve spent years navigating the complexities of establishing, growing, and maintaining a bona fide business presence and selling products in overseas markets amongst an increasing regulatory atmosphere.

It’s not easy. It takes tremendous patience, diplomacy and persistence.

Need some help? Give me a shout.

I also take a lot of pictures and live in Austin, Texas.
