HostingCon 2012 has been a very refreshing experience for LeaseWeb USA this year, attending such an important industry event with our entire team was an amazing opportunity. We shared and learned about industry trends, shook hands with our customers and partners – but most of all we got completely hyped up to bring a fresh breeze from Boston’s Bay with us!
Wow, time flies when you’re having fun! It seems like yesterday that I was standing around the HostingCon 2011 booth with my colleagues, talking to customers, partners, industry experts and more. But this year is going to be extra-special: For the first time, our entire US Sales team is going to be there to meet you and tell you what we’ve been up to in our Northern Virginia datacenter.
I can’t believe it’s already been 1.5 years since the birth of LeaseWeb USA, Inc!
Strategically, for the LeaseWeb brand, it was the obvious step after strongly leading the European hosting market – the US was what our customers were continuously asking us for. So LeaseWeb USA, Inc. was established specifically for targeting and supporting the US market.
When you run into someone in the hallways of the LeaseWeb’s offices and say ‘Hey, how’s it going?” the most common answer you will get is “Great! But busy!”
It’s true, we’re all so involved with whatever it is we’re doing, literally running sometimes day and night to meet deadlines. From my point of view, you really need to be smart about striking a balance between meeting those deadlines, while still taking your time to be creative to bring that extra something into your work.
This week the LeaseWeb offices have seemed more like a bakery, with home-baked Indonesian cakes, biscuits and treats being served to colleagues, co-workers and company friends. It’s all in the name of a good cause called Sukaria. LeaseWeb is supporting Sukaria, a charity founded by one of its Customer Support Engineer, Janice Ritzer. The Sukaria project aims to raise funds, food and clothing for the children of the Mollucan Islands, Indonesia.
We love hearing your opinion, not only because it gives us a clear idea of what your needs are but most of all because you have such awesome ideas! We’ve really been focused lately in talking to our customers more, whether through emails, phone, Twitter, Facebook or even through this very blog. We’re constantly working with your ideas.
