Valideus managed more than 120 new gTLDs applications for brand owners in the first round of Icann’s new gTLD programme and also provides registry management services.

Neuman, who trained as a lawyer, has been with Neustar for more than 15 years. He was also a member of Icann’s GNSO from 2003 to 2005 and 2010 to 2013 and has chaired a number of Icann groups.
