LONDON: It sounds like a throwback to dot-com bubbles gone by, but
a British internet company is looking to hire an American PR firm to
break into the US market.
Thomas Goolnick, head of marketing for TLD Networks, said his company is
the second-largest domain-registering site in the UK. Goolnick said he

$20,400 a year for PR. The company is also interested in

"We want to establish ourselves as a major player in the US market,"
said Goolnick. "We don't want a whole bunch of boring corporate people.

The 62-person company is looking to establish a US office, probably in
New York, and has just opened offices in France and Italy.
