Jon Nevett leaves Donuts

Nevett completes co-founder exodus from Donuts.

Donuts co-founder Jon Nevett has stepped down from the company but will remain an advisor.

Jon Nevett, one of four co-founders of top level domain name Donuts, has stepped down. He was the last remaining founder in a full-time role at the company. He will remain an advisor to the company.

Nevett ran policy for the company and helped it navigate the new top level domain application, objection and contention set settlement process.

Abry Partners acquired Donuts last month, creating a liquidity event for some shareholders. Since then, the company announced that it hired Akram Atallah from ICANN to be its new CEO. I expect there will be some more management shifts at the company in the coming months.

In the case of Nevett, he’s spent the last eight years handling policy for the company. He’s been working on new top level domains for about a decade.

Should he choose to stay in the domain industry, there are plenty of domain companies in his backyard in the Washington D.C. area.
