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.
These days I’m working full-time with the RegistryOffice team spreading the good word about our Business Intelligence and Abuse Monitoring services and expanding the range of consulting services. I’m fortunate to be involved with this killer team of respected industry veterans located in Europe, 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 at your registry or registrar? Give me a shout.
I also take a lot of pictures and live in Austin, Texas.
