Hosting provider Layered Technologies, headquartered in Plano, Texas, has appointed Bruce Chatterley as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Chatterley succeeds Jack Finlayson, who is retiring as Chairman and CEO. Most recently, Chatterley held the position of President and CEO of Broadvox, a provider of cloud-based business communication solutions.
Prior to joining Broadvox, Bruce Chatterley was President of Business Markets at Megapath, Inc., a nationwide Competitive Local Exchange Carrier. He helped to create Megapath by co-leading the three-way merger and integration of Covad, Speakeasy, and Megapath. Prior to Megapath, he was President and CEO of Speakeasy where he led the company through a significant growth phase and directed a major strategic shift – including its ultimate sale to Best Buy, Inc. in 2007.
Jack Finlayson will continue as a Senior Advisor to Chatterley and the Board of Layered Tech.
“Over the past six years, Jack has driven the transformation of Layered Tech from a dedicated transactional hosting company to a leader in delivering managed compliant hosting solutions,” said Ben Bisconti, a Board member and Managing Director at Accel-KKR, Layered Tech’s lead investor. “We are greatly appreciative of his tremendous contributions to the company. Jack has built a world-class team at Layered Tech and, through both acquisitions and organic growth, has added high quality professionals, customers and product offerings to help establish the company’s current leadership position in delivering complex managed solutions to commercial and federal clients.”
