Guillaume Pahud

Guillaume Pahud – Founder & CEO

Guillaume studied engineering in France, at the Ecole Centrale de Paris. He was very quickly involved in the early phases of disruptive innovation, having implemented sensor based intelligent construction sites as early as 1996.  Since 2004, he has been instrumental in the digital transformation of a major Luxury Group, developing his expertise in digital strategy and operations, change management in large groups and traditional industries.

He was involved very early in the “dot brand” world, as he applied for 14 domains, out of which 10 “dot brand”. Leveraging on his business, marketing and digital experience, Guillaume co-founded dot stories to provide solutions for “dot brand”.

Guillaume is also regularly contributing in the Master of Luxury Management from the Geneva Management School as well as at CREA.

Swiss made

dot stories was created in Switzerland, and is incorporated in the canton de Geneva as a Société Anonyme. Geneva is, since centuries, the symbol of quality and precision craftsmanship. Our values carry this sense of quality and excellent customer service. We are also fully hosted in Switzerland, for an enhanced security and data privacy.

Switzerland is a hub for innovation and new technologies. It is ranked most innovative country by WIPO in their Global Innovation Index 2015. The city of Geneva is a major landmark for all things digital,  as Tim Berners-Lee invented the world wide web and HTML back in 1990 in the CERN, in Geneva’s suburbs and 10 km away from dot stories’ headquarters.

Second level domain cloud

dot brand observatory

The dot brand observatory is a research program, run in collaboration with Valideus, that analyses a large number of criteria for every Second Level Domain in the world of Corporate Top Level Domains. All the domain names are detailed, and specific brand strategies are decrypted to understand the objective and the tactics of the branded domain extension launch.

New gTLD

The new gTLD program was developed to increase competition and choice on the domain names space. The application window was opened early 2012. The next opening is being discussed by the community, but may not come before 2019.
