Long-time hosting provider appoints new channel-centric COO to sustain growth
SHERBROOKE, QC, November 13, 2014 — Cloud services provider SherWeb today announced that it has ranked for the 4th consecutive year on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America. Winners are evaluated on the percentage of revenue growth over the five-year period from 2009-2013. SherWeb ranked 489th on the list, with a 141-percentage growth for this period.
The Deloitte ranking is just one of SherWeb’s many recent successes. In October, it successfully entered the competitive Infrastructure-as-as-Service (IaaS) segment with its high performance public cloud servers. In July, SherWeb won rare back-to-back honors from Microsoft when it was named Global Hosting Partner of the Year Finalist after winning the highly competitive category in 2013.
SherWeb also recently named seasoned IT and Telecom veteran Joe Mardini to the new position of Chief Operating Officer to support the company’s growth ambitions. Mardini has held executive positions at major corporations such as IBM and Bell Canada, and his 30-year expertise spans both the Enterprise and SMB segments.
“We are thrilled to have someone of Joe’s caliber on board,” says Peter Cassar, SherWeb’s founder and CEO. “Joe will play an integral role in ensuring our operational excellence so that we can continue to remain profitable as the cloud market matures while simultaneously pursuing our aggressive channel growth strategy.”
The long-time hosting provider has a network of more than 4,000 channel partners that resell or white-label its diversified cloud services portfolio.
“The channel will be the driving force of SherWeb’s sustained success,” says Joe Mardini. “Everything I do in 2015, whether it touches on internal strategies, sales, marketing, support or infrastructure, will be measured against two key barometers: partner and customer satisfaction.”
