Web host and domain registrar GoDaddy
has strengthened its executive team by bringing in new talent and a key internal promotion. GoDaddy, which is one of the planet’s largest providers of hosting and domain names, has headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona, United States. The company is a recognized global brand and a household name in the United States where its Super Bowl commercials raised its profile. The company’s services extend to Office 365 options and the company prides itself on being able to provide smaller companies with the tools they need to establish a viable web presence. The company has moved Scott Wagner into the President and Chief Operating Officer (COO) positions and brought in Ray Winborne as Chief Financial Officer (CFO).
Mr. Wagner formerly worked with Kohlberg Kravis & Roberts (KKR), a company has invested in GoDaddy. He took a dual COO/CFO role in 2013 when Blake Irving became the company’s CEO. The move sees Mr. Wagner responsible for “revenue and customer growth operations”. This will include ensuring the company aligns with its policy of aggressive international expansion. He will also oversee marketing and customer care.
Mr. Winborne is a 20-year industry veteran specializing in corporate finance. He takes over the CFO role from Scott Wagner. Before joining GoDaddy he was CFO at “commerce-enabling” technology and solutions provider First Data. Before this he held executive positions at PwC Delta Air Lines and AT&T.
"I'm incredibly happy to welcome Ray to the GoDaddy team,” explained Blake Irving the CEO of GoDaddy. “He's a high energy, well-seasoned financial professional — and a perfect fit for our driven and scrappy culture. Ray's addition carries on GoDaddy's history of world-class financial leadership while freeing Scott to focus on the next phase of our market growth, in the U.S. and around the world."
