He continues to work as its CEO; he is also Chairman of the Board of Management of KeyDrive S.A., Luxembourg, the holding company of Key-Systems and Moniker.[1] and CEO of the companies SkyWay DataCenter, dotSaarland GmbH ( and KSregistry GmbH.

Kay Bailey Hutchison to support ICANN's new gTLD program, in response to the Senate Hearings taking place on the same day. They supported ICANN's argument that the program would be innovative and economically beneficial, and noted that the program took a diverse group of international stakeholders years to develop.[2] The letter can be found here.
