January 15, 2009
January 15, 2009 (HOSTSEARCH.COM) Noreen Allen has joined data center and managed services provider Hosted Solutions as Vice President of Marketing, it was reported recently. This is the first time anyone has filled this position at the company. This is the perfect time to bring in someone with Noreens background, explained Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Hosted Solutions, Mr. Rich Lee. Weve built a strong, profitable business organically over the last seven years without a marketing strategist on our executive team. Noreen led marketing for two very prominent local brands that were in similar high growth situations. Her experience with marketing, branding and positioning will be invaluable for us as we take the business to the next level.
Im incredibly excited to join the Hosted Solutions team, enthused Ms. Allen. Rich and his team have built a solid business in a very controlled, strategic manner. Given the current economic climate, the managed hosting sector is one of the most attractive areas of business with great potential for continued growth as things like cloud computing and virtualization move to the forefront. Hosted Solutions is in a great position in the market and I see tremendous opportunity to continue to grow the business.
Before joining Hosted Solutions Ms. Allen was Vice President of Marketing at Motricity. During her tenure Motricity grew from approximately $35 million to $100 million in annual revenues. Prior to Motricity she was eight years Vice President of Marketing at SpectraSite Communications. According to Hosted Solutions, Ms. Allen joining the company comes on the heels of a record growth year and a $144 million acquisition by Boston-based private equity firm ABRY Partners.
We just finished a very strong year, Lee added. Our business has continued to flourish even in the midst of a tough economy because we offer solutions that enable companies to manage through and survive difficult markets. Many businesses are struggling today, and theyre looking for cost savings in their IT budgets. Our solutions allow our customers to minimize capital expenditures and control operating expenses, making it much easier for them to focus on the business and navigate a tough climate.
