As a .ME Registry we are glad to have an experienced team of Internet veterans for our Board of Directors. Their valuable insights and support give us the security we need to keep thinking outside the box and breaking the mould in the domain industry.
Desiree Evans Milošević (Afilias)
President of the Board. Special Advisor to the chair of the UN’s IGF. Member of the board at ISOC.
Desiree is an active connector, tech benefactor and an important member of the global Internet governance community. She served as Special Adviser to the UN Under-Secretary and Chair of the Internet Governance Multi-stakeholder Advisory Group. Currently is a Board Trustee of the Internet Society, Board Director at the Internet Society Foundation (and SHARE Foundation).
As a President of .ME Registry’s Board of Directors, she is representing Afilias, the world’s second largest top level domain registry, as its Senior Public Policy and International Affairs Advisor.

James Bladel (GoDaddy)
Member of the Board. Vice President of Policy at Godaddy.
James is driven by technology and its potential to transfer business, society and government.
In .ME Registry’s Board of Directors, James is representing GoDaddy, the world’s largest cloud platform dedicated to small independent ventures, as its Vice President of Global Planning. He is also on the board of Nominet, and represents GoDaddy at ICANN. Previously, James was GNSO Council and GNSO Chair, and the groups facilitating the IANA transition.
His work for .ME Registry made his fall head over heels for Montenegro and it is never that hard to convince him to visit.
