An internet pioneer and co-founder of the world's first commercial Internet Service Provider, Schrader will be chartered with building on the company's brisk growth to further expand the customer base and oversee the roll out of new products and services in the massive US market.

Since then the company has experienced rapid take-up of its highly reliable hosting solutions, gaining customers across several industries including online gaming, streaming video and advertising networks.

Schrader said, "We are at a tipping point in hosting and networking, as a plethora of companies strive to adapt their practices and incorporate cloud-based elements as an integral part of their core business. With a highly knowledgeable and dedicated team, LeaseWeb USA is the first provider in the market to offer quality global hosting solutions at an extremely competitive price point." "By joining LeaseWeb I have returned to the most exciting and rapidly evolving part of the IT landscape: delivering hosting services and solutions to one of the fastest growing markets on the globe," continues Schrader.

The executive team is supremely dedicated and capable of thinking outside of the box allowing me to feel at home." Con Zwinkels, LeaseWeb's Founder, commented, "We are committed to investing in and accelerating the considerable success that LeaseWeb USA has had to date, and we are delighted to have Bill Schrader, with his depth of experience and market understanding, join us and spearhead the next phase of LeaseWeb's development."
