Banking & Finance: Circle CEO named to web domain panel; RCU chief on national board

Kim Kaselionis, president and chief executive officer of Circle Bank in Novato, has been named one of eight members of an American Bankers Association task force that will make recommendations about creating a top-level “.bank” domain name for the nation’s 7,000 community banks.

There currently only 21 top-level Internet Corp. for Assigned Names and Numbers approved domains, such as .com and .net, and the last approvals for new names occurred in 2000.

“The strictness of the process is a means of protecting users of the Internet,” said Ms. Kaselionis.  “Top-level domain names require higher levels of security and have a clear relevance for banks.”

The goal of this task force is to have recommendations completed during the first quarter of this year.
