Managed hosting provider Hostway has made a number of key executive moves over the last year. Hiring two new executives would further strengthen Hostway’s leadership roster. The company has welcomed David Newton to the role of Vice President, Service Operations and Eric Milhizer as Vice President, Marketing.
“Our customers need dependable and flexible solutions specific to their needs that don’t break the bank,” said Bob Boles, CEO of Hostway. “That’s what we’re offering at Hostway – managed solutions that IT teams can rely on to meet their needs now and in the future. David and Eric both have the world-class expertise and experience to deliver the best service and solutions to the right customers.”
A network operations specialist, David Newton spent the last 11 years with Terremark/Verizon, where he led both operations and governance & compliance, serving in executive roles overseeing virtual and cloud platform offerings, shared service, OSS and administration, and global infrastructure engineering.
Mr. Newton’s background in operations, product development and customer service would make him uniquely qualified to ensure Hostway customers enjoy the reliability, service and support they deserve. Newton will focus on 24/7 NOC operations, product delivery and reliability, and support personnel excellence.
Eric Milhizer is a marketing expert with more than 20 years of marketing strategy and hands-on expertise under his belt in the highly competitive mobile and networking industries. Driven to get the right message to the right audience, Mr. Milhizer will focus on reaching the right customers with the right solutions and benefits Hostway can deliver at scale.
Previously as CMO at TruConnect, one of the fastest-growing mobile virtual network operators in the U.S., he spearheaded a complete rebranding of the company. Prior to that, while serving as VP, Direct to Consumer Marketing at MetroPCS, he was responsible for driving revenue through the company’s mass-scale, targeted direct marketing.
“As we focus our services and strategy specifically around meeting the high-reliability needs of our target customers, we’re very excited to have these two experts on board,” added Mr. Boles. “It’s a watershed opportunity for our business, and we’re ready to take the lead as the Managed Cloud partner of choice in the markets we serve.”
