Michael has been involved in various internet-based businesses since 2004 and quickly graduated from building, promoting, and monetizing websites to buying and selling them. With over a decade of experience, Michael and Domain Magnate have managed over 300 successful deals. Domain Magnate was born out of the growing market for website buyers and sellers, and currently aims to enable sellers to exit their businesses fast.
Michael specializes in M&A of content, affiliate, e-commerce, and SaaS businesses. He was featured in numerous industry publications and conferences and consults entrepreneurs on buying and selling web businesses, marketing, and growth strategy. His resolute business outlook to lead made Domain Magnate a fast-growing company for the past decade.
He is an avid traveler, has visited 50 countries and lived in 4, speaks four languages, a FIDE Master in chess and a fan of history and philosophy. He’s the host of the Domain Magnate Show, a podcast featuring thought-leaders in the industry and discussing the nuances of profitable deal making – from sourcing and due diligence to negotiation, deal structure, and exit strategy.
Paterson brings specialist expertise and people-focused leadership to the executive team, having worked in both management and executive roles for Bank of Australia, Xerox, Leidos, and other international corporations. Domain Magnate, which acquires and manages online businesses on behalf of investors, has recently opened its third investment fund— and it won’t be the last. Paterson will help optimize the value from these investments and sharpen processes to support company expansion. He will assist Domain Magnate in their aim to stay ahead of the curve by capitalizing on new opportunities and cashing in on a quality gap in the current market.
As a global employer, Domain Magnate is thrilled to have access to the very best talent. Paterson’s varied experience and passion across Financial Services, IT, and most recently remote consulting, make him well-placed to aid growth in a fast-changing landscape for digital assets. “My personal goal when I moved from Australia to Thailand last year was to explore the exploding world of digital and globally remote enterprises. Thus, for me to join Domain Magnate in a full-time remote role is hugely exciting!” Paterson said.
She provides administrative and operational support to Michael on a day-to-day basis whilst managing tasks such as podcasts outreach, managing social media accounts and general communication with clients and potential investors.
