Web hosting and
IP solution provider Verio will (verio.com)
announce on Monday that its board of directors has appointed Greg Conley as
chief executive offer.
Conley will replace Justin Jaschke, who is stepping down after
founding and leading the company since 1996.
“Greg is taking the reins at an exciting time in Verio’s
evolution. In the past two years, Verio has strengthened its leadership position
in SME hosting services, emerged as a global leader in enterprise level hosting
services, ushered in the next generation of the Internet with the first
commercial IPv6 offering, and developed a partner channel that is a leader in
our industry segment,” says Jaschke. “Verio’s financial strength combined with
its broad arsenal of services makes for a powerful customer proposition,
positioning the company for solid growth as the market continues its recovery.”
Jaschke will remain with the company in an advisory capacity and
will officially hand over the CEO duties on February 9.
“Greg Conley is an outstanding business leader with extensive
experience at high-profile services and solutions organizations,” says Masanobu
Suzuki, president and CEO of Verio parent NTT Communications. “He has the
perfect credentials to ensure that the impressive resurgence of Verio continues,
and to continue to accelerate the global growth of this business as we
increasingly expand within the enterprise market. We are delighted to announce
Greg as the new CEO of Verio.”
Conley was most recently president and chief executive officer of
Tanning Technology Corporation, a global systems integrator and IT solutions
provider. Prior to his tenure at Tanning Technology, Conley was a global general
manager of e-Markets at IBM.
“I look forward to working closely with NTT Communications and the
Verio team to achieve continued financial and market results as we ensure
ongoing investments in our solutions development and delivery, and excellent
service to our customers,” says Conley. “Verio is poised to capture an even
larger share of the market and capitalize on its leadership position. I’m
certainly excited about the opportunities.”
