Record Breaking Domain Broker Jeff Gabriel Wraps Up 7-Year Run With Uniregistry


Domain
sales giant
 Jeff
Gabriel
, who was profiled in a 2016
DNJournal Cover Story
,
is closing yet another successful
chapter in his remarkable career.
Gabriel broke into the business with
Sedo.com where he closed a
record breaking deal for Sex.com
at $13 million in 2010 – a
deal that reigned as the biggest
publicly reported domain sale of all
time until it was finally surpassed
by the eye popping $30 million sale
of Voice.com last month. 

Gabriel’s
success at Sedo led to Domain
Advisors
(who later re-branded
as Igloo.com) luring him away
to be their President in 2011. Then,
two years later, industry legend Frank
Schilling
called on Gabriel to
run the new domain sales operation
Schilling launched under the Uniregistry
banner.

After 7
years with Uni, Gabriel, who played
a key role in helping building the
company into an industry powerhouse,
decided his mission there

Jeff
Gabriel

is now
complete. In a post
on the Uniregistry blog

late Tuesday, Gabriel officially
announced he is leaving his position
as Vice President of Sales so he can
move his family back to his Massachusetts
home after seven years spent living
in Cayman Islands where Uni
is headquartered.

Gabriel
will return home with a lot to be
proud of. He noted, “We grew
from four to forty salespeople, with
sales support staff selling thousands
of domains, eclipsing the $50
million
USD mark in yearly
sales volume
. We will more than
likely have broken $250 million
mark in sales during my tenure while
you read this. We also built new
technology, products, and
processes.”

Jeff’s
time in the Caymans were accompanied
by the biggest events in his
personal life as well. “My wife
had our two children here,” he
said. “After discussing this
with friends and family, it is time
for me to step down and return home
to make up for lost time with my
family and pursue other projects. I
want to thank all of the customers,
Frank, and our team that have made
these past seven years the best
seven I ever had!” Gabriel
declared.

With
Gabriel’s departure Dan
Adamson
will take over
as Vice President of Sales
and Wade Smith will
become the Director of
Sales. Adamson and Smith
were both already part of
the Uniregistry family and
both are well-known and
highly-regarded industry
veterans. While the sales
operation at Uni will remain
in good hands, Gabriel’s
many friends and fans are
looking forward to seeing
what his next move will be.
