For 23 years, SafeBrands has adapted to the ever-changing domain business industry. From the first generic .com to the NewTLDs, including value added services such as hosting or cybersecurity, we have always been careful to tie our products to our ambition for excellence in customer care.
I joined Charles Tiné in 1998 and we moved forward together through the years, the technological changes, the birth of the Cloud and the New TLD program, and became a company known for its “savoir faire” in the protection of brands in the digital world.
Our products and services are used by thousands of customers, directly or through our trusted partners, and I thank you again for your continued trust.
We have placed quality and excellence at the top of our development plan, and this quality continues to be recognized as the results of our yearly customer surveys demonstrate, as well as the renewal of our Iso 9001 certification in late December.
I am delighted to share with you a fantastic piece of news that will allow us to accelerate our development in 2021.
As of this day, SafeBrands has become part of the CentralNic Group (see https://www.centralnicgroup.com/news/news-from-2021/centralnic-group-acquires-safebrands-enhances-brand-services/).
CentralNic (AIM: CNIC) is a fast-growing global company which helps its clients to optimise their digital ambitions by providing domain name and associated digital services, including online brand protection (see https://www.centralnicgroup.com/). CentralNic operates globally, with clients in almost every country and is committed to the growth of a better digital economy whilst sharing the same values as SafeBrands.
SafeBrands remains an autonomous French company, based in Marseille, Paris and Nice and nothing is changing for you regarding pricing, your personal contacts or our quality of service. I am staying as Managing Director, and SafeBrands team will remain the same. Charles Tiné will join the CentralNic Group to manage strategic matters.
Moreover, moving forwards we will be able to offer new services, products and tools, with an unwavering focus on the same goal: to make your life easier and protect you even better, supported by a global group with access to an increased number of products and significant resources.
Our main assets (the team, our multiple accreditations, our monitoring tools, our strategic solutions) will add value to the Group.
Matthieu Aubert, who has been working with us for 14 years will remain at the head of customer relations. We will make sure that we will keep you up to date with the latest news.
I will set up a webinar in January to present our roadmap for 2021, and to answer questions. The whole SafeBrands team is also available on the phone, or through online video conference. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
I am convinced this next step in our evolution is a positive move for all of us, making 2021 a great year for our continued partnership. I also take the opportunity to wish you all a wonderful and successful year to come, from SafeBrands and CentralNic.
General Manager of SafeBrands
