“I am pleased with the opportunity TWS brings to the Axarnet Group as a company and to me personally,” said Ventura Gil Peña, CEO of Axarnet Group. “TWS will act as an accelerator as they bring operational best practices from other TWS colleagues combined with financial flexibility and experience. This will enable me to build my own group quicker and more efficient than pursuing my ambitions on my own. The decentralized philosophy and management style of TWS, assuring more autonomy for participating entrepreneurs, guarantees that I can continue spending my time with my team and with potential new acquisition candidates.
The acquisition by TWS would give Axarnet Group access to many best practices, a peer network and sufficient funds to accelerate their ambitious growth plan.
“With TWS we bring an alternative to the market for small and mid-sized hosting companies,” said Matthieu van Amerongen, CEO of TWS. “In a consolidating market, ambitious hosting companies are looking for best practices in operations and technology to maintain their market position and/or are looking for support to efficiently and quickly expand their current business through i.e. acquisitions. TWS offers these best practices as well as a network of peers where web hosting providers can relate too. I am pleased that Ventura Gil Peña is joining our team.”
TWS would provide financial security, strategic guidance, and best practices for its family of web hosting brands. Other companies that operate under the umbrella of TWS include Yourhosting, Versio, PC Extreme, RealHosting, De Heeg, Savvii, Provider, Neostrada and Reviced Cloud Services.
