“Although I have only known Ned for a relatively short time, he does display a dogged determination and unrelenting persistence to protect the rights of domain name owners right across Australia. It’s for this reason that I support his election to the auDA Board.”
Andrew Wright – Marketing Project Manager, Brisbane
“I’ve known Ned for nearly ten years, and during that time he’s shown that he is a man of principle and conviction.
He’s an ideal candidate, and I strongly recommend that Demand Class members get behind him.”
Paul Szyndler – Former General Manager – International and Government Affairs – auDA
“I first worked with Ned on the 2012 auDA Industry Advisory Panel. During that process, and over the proceeding years, I’ve found Ned to be a passionate, informed and collaborative contributor to the Australian Domain Name community.
Ned’s ability to negotiate and consider multiple scenarios and options, while also fearlessly standing up for matters of principle, make him an ideal candidate for the auDA Board.”
Richard Green – Technical Lead – IE Digital – Melbourne
“Over many years, I’ve come to realise Ned’s passion for the .au space is unsurpassable. He has stood up and fought for transparency in our industry many times, and often does so at the expense of his own affairs.
I’ve been an auDA member for 7 years, and I think Ned is exactly what the organization needs. He would make an excellent Director – and I endorse him wholeheartedly.”
Jen Sale – Co-Founder – Evergreen.com
“As a colleague of Ned’s for many years, I’ve been inspired by his enthusiasm, dedication, work ethic, and willingness to invest whatever it takes to protect and grow the Australian domain name space.
I would recommend Ned as an auDA Director, without any hesitation, and would feel very confident that the future of our industry would be in safe and experienced hands.”
Erwin Groen – ErwinGroen.com.au
“Since joining auDA as a demand class member I feel that not much open communication has occurred between its members and the auDA organisation. There needs to be much more transparency with the things that are going on, especially now that direct implementation of .au at the second level might be occurring.
I feel that at times, the only way I seem to get anything out with what’s happening is when I access the forums or read the news. I feel that Ned O’Meara is a good communicator, expresses things opinions openly, professionally and directly & in a non-biased way to all who own Australian domain names.
I believe that auDA board needs someone like Ned, & I would happily endorse him as a demand class Director.”
Scott Long – CYBERMEDIA
“There will never be a nominee with a greater history of advocacy for transparency and accountability within auDA than Ned O’Meara.”
Nikki Scholes – Operations Manager – Netfleet
“Ned tirelessly fights for the integrity of the .au domain space. I’ve found him to be trustworthy, transparent and honest, dealing with difficult issues head on. Traits which should be prevalent in the .au Administration.
He is one of the most passionate and knowledgable people about the .au domain space, and looks for the best outcome for all stakeholders. Having experience on both the demand and supply side, I believe Ned is well positioned for auDA directorship and will help steer the ship in the right direction.”
Ian Jackson – Director Professionals Travel Cover and Head Boomer, Boomers Travel Insurance
“When myself and fellow shareholders made the decision to sell our high value domain, my independent research suggested Ned was the best man for the job.
Fortunately after having engaged Ned I was immediately comfortable that my decision was vindicated. His experience, professionalism and extensive contacts all pointed to us getting an outcome we desired. If anything, Ned exceeded our expectations. I suggest that if you are in the market to buy or sell a domain, have a chat with him before making any formal commitments.” December 12, 2016

I believe you are the most honest hard working person I know in the domain industry, and your knowledge is without doubt the best and most highly suited to be a demand class director on the AUDA Board.
There is hardly a person in the domain industry who does not know you, and with all the proposed changes coming to au space, I would rather have you making sure we get it right.”

I have had the pleasure of working closely with Ned for the last 6 months, whilst he has been engaged brokering a number of key premium domains for OMG, as well as buying names for his own portfolio.
Not only has Ned taught me a huge amount about the Domain name industry, but he has taught me so much more about Sales professionalism, honesty, integrity and ethics. What Ned doesn’t know about sales is clearly not worth knowing. I have no doubt, that I am not the only person who honestly believes that Ned is the best in the business.
Whether you are a Buyer, Seller or a novice in the Domain Name space, I would strongly recommend getting to know Ned, and I know that you will enjoy the experience”. July 4, 2013.
