Christine Jones, Go Daddy’s general counsel, has announced that she will begin a new chapter in her career.
After a 10-year stint, Jones decided to step down from her role as general counsel of internet domain giant, Go Daddy, according to the website Domain Name Wire.
Last year, Corporate Secretary magazine awarded Jones and her team the award for best use of technology by a corporate secretary or general counsel. The Go Daddy legal team was honored for its social media initiatives and legal work in the virtual setting.
Jones, pictured left, was Go Daddy’s first lawyer. She established the company’s legal department, which has grown to nearly 100 people. While working to expand the legal team, Jones spearheaded many initiatives to help protect the online community and regularly testified before Congress.
During her tenure, she managed all legal aspects at the company. Reportedly, Nima Kelly, deputy general counsel will serve as the Scottsdale, Arizona-based company’s acting general counsel as Jones moves on to the next chapter in her career.
