Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Dr Willie Black - the founder of the central registry for all internet domain names ending in .uk - is to stand down as chairman of Nominet UK.

A leading figure in Europe's internet community, Dr Black set up Nominet UK nine years ago and has overseen the growth of the company from the early days with just three staff, to an outfit with 130 employees and a turnover of £10m.

Said Nominet's MD, Lesley Cowley: "Willie's foresight, guidance and leadership have helped to establish Nominet as one of the world's most successful and highly regarded domain registries, and we are profoundly grateful for his substantial contribution."

Once he steps down as chairman Dr Black intends to take up a number of non-executive director positions in other organisations. ®
