Sedo veteran Matthias Meyer-Schönherr has been appointed Chief Sales Officer (CSO) Global in one of 2 management changes announced by Sedo this week, the other being Dima Beitzke who will be stepping down to pursue a new opportunity outside of the domain industry.
The management of both the North American and International sales teams will continue from Sedo’s headquarters in Cologne, Germany under Meyer-Schönherr’s leadership.
Dima Beitzke joined Sedo in 2013 bringing with him a wide breadth of management experience in sales and online marketing that enabled him success in further growing Sedo’s sales distribution network into Asia and other emerging markets. In early 2016, he was promoted to CSO Global taking on the responsibility of overseeing Sedo’s North American based sales team and the corresponding markets in addition to global efforts. Very much a people person, Dima’s natural upbeat morale lifted the already lively spirit and friendly culture of Sedo while simultaneously encouraging an even more intense focus on sales performance.
Sedo’s new CSO Global, Matthias Meyer-Schönherr has been with Sedo for ten years most recently as Vice President of Global Business Development where he led critical business development efforts including the establishment and successful expansion of the SedoMLS network. Matthias has been integral in the relationship development and management of Sedo’s vast Registry and Registrar partnerships as well as the promotion of the Sedo brand globally. He has represented Sedo at countless international conferences and trade shows. At many of these events, Matthias has served on panels and given talks on the value and commercial benefits of a quality domain name.
Commenting on how Meyer-Schönherr and Beitzke are part of Sedo, CEO Tobias Flaitz said the pair were very popular and the he was very optimistic and positive towards the latest adjustments to his management team.
“Naturally there is sadness when someone leaves but at the same time change provides opportunity for both the employer and employee like the pursuit of different avenues and advancement in career growth,” said Flaitz. “We have extremely good retention rates within our skilled group of employees and are very fortunate to be able to fill this position with a successful, proven and well-liked leader from our own team.”
