HostingFinland is very pleased to announce changes to its global command. Anastasious Kapoulos, currently senior vice-president of operations, will be the new CEO of HostingFinland. The executive takes the chair that Pieter de Koeijer left open last March.
Kapoulos, who led the hosting technologies provider since its inception a few years back, will take over a chairman position in order to oversee other business segments. He still retains a seat on the company’s board of directors.
In a statement, Kapoulos referred to de Koeijer as “a very strong leader” who has a great deal of knowledge about the company. The executive left Avaya in 1997 as an account manager and has held positions as head of sales and partners.
The provider sees the new CEO as a professional able to devise and execute the company’s growth strategies by betting on vertical business. He led the company in the integration of several graphic technologies which have changed the outlook of the company in recent years.
De Koijer joined HostingFinland in 2003, seven years after the foundation of the company as a sales director. He was appointed CEO in 2009. Since taking such a position, the company saw its revenues jump from $ 126 million to $ 680 million.
The market’s response to the announcement was very positive, hence reinforcing the HostingFinland name and opening broader paths to new enterprises and sectors. More statements will be added later after the whole restructuring has been concluded.
As usual, HostingFinland’s employees will welcome its new CEO in an event whose place and time is yet to be decided.
