Tessa Holcomb is Co-Founder and CEO of Igloo.com and most recently was acclaimed for her part in this year’s largest public domain sale to date, IG.com, trading hands for $4.7 Million to London based IG Group. Formerly known as DomainAdvisors, the decision to rebrand to Igloo.com was made earlier this year to differentiate the firm in the marketplace and to create a unique and memorable brand among the VC, start-up and investor communities. Whether a result of the cool new name, the dynamic team or a combination of the two, Igloo.com has experienced its best year ever with sales already surpassing those of the previous two combined.
Prior to founding Igloo, Tessa was responsible for the oversight and coordination of The PPX International core domain businesses, associated ventures, philanthropic fund and strategic partnerships. Tessa graduated from The University of California at Los Angeles with a degree in psychology, working for 15 years in sales and business development roles before joining the domain industry in 2009.
