FireHost Adds New Chief Operating Officer to Growing Executive Team

Company Expands Across All Departments to Accommodate Rapid Growth

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - March 2, 2011) - Keeping up with demand has meant a boost in hiring for FireHost, the leading secure, managed hosting provider. To complement this growth, FireHost has brought on board a new chief operating officer, Bruce MacFadyen, to implement processes that will enable the company to continue to grow efficiently at its accelerated rate. Based on his previous positions within healthcare and investment companies, MacFadyen has a successful track record in helping companies rapidly grow revenue through process management and financial expertise.

"When a company hits a certain stage, the operations need to adjust with it or there is a risk of things falling through the cracks. I believe in staying a step ahead, and that is why having someone like Bruce join FireHost right now is so critical," said Chris Drake, founder and CEO of FireHost. "Bruce brings with him experience with technology, people, investors and other influencers who matter for our next phase of growth. We are thrilled to have him as part of our team."

MacFadyen joins FireHost from Guardian Healthcare Holdings where he served as director of operations. During his tenure there, Guardian's revenue more than doubled. MacFadyen was also a principal of Atlas Capital, a private investment company in Dallas, Texas. At Atlas, he managed the firm's investments in the technology and consumer sectors. Prior to Atlas, Bruce was a senior portfolio consultant for HOLT Value Associates (now a subsidiary of Credit Suisse Group) where he consulted with buy-side investment firms. Bruce has a Masters of Accounting from the Cox School of Business at SMU and is a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA).

MacFadyen adds, "This is a unique opportunity to be a part of a company that has a strong vision for where web hosting has been and where it is going. FireHost has an unequaled position as a leader in providing secure hosting. I cannot say enough good things about this team and the solution they've created. FireHost's leadership in this market is evident, and I look forward to helping the company get to the next level of success."

FireHost is additionally bringing on new employees in all departments including networking, development, customer support, sales and marketing. Later this spring FireHost will move into a larger office space and take occupancy of a new data center facility with mission-critical infrastructure and redundancy. The company is now one of the fastest growing secure Web hosting companies, serving businesses in over 20 countries. FireHost specializes in offering managed hosting to Ecommerce, SaaS, healthcare IT, and security companies.
