    Nominet is announcing the departure of Lesley Cowley OBE as CEO. The Nominet Board acknowledges the contribution Lesley has made to establish Nominet as a widely respected domain name registry over the last 15 years.

    Rennie Fritchie DBE, Nominet Chair, said: "Under Lesley's leadership, Nominet has earned a well-deserved reputation for excellent service, and Lesley has played a leading role within the internet sector and wider IT world. The Board thanks Lesley for her dedication and commitment, and for her achievement in making the UK namespace a trusted online home for the millions who use it."

    Lesley Cowley said: "After 15 years at Nominet, it is now the right time to move on. It has been a privilege to lead Nominet for the past 12 years and I am incredibly proud of our achievements in that time. It is the staff team that make Nominet so special and I would like to especially thank each of them for their amazing efforts over the last decade and a half."

    Lesley leaves us on the 9th July. Nominet will now begin a search for a new CEO who will lead the company through its next phase of development.

    In the meantime, the Company will be run by a leadership team - the Chief Operating Officer, the Chief Technology Officer and the Chief Commercial Officer, working closely with the Nominet Chair.
