Press Release: Liquid Web Hires Terry Flood as New CFO

LANSING, Mich., Sept. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Liquid Web, Inc., a leading provider of professional web hosting and managed cloud services headquartered in Lansing, MI has just announced the hiring of executive Terry Flood as the company’s new Chief Financial Officer. The company — whose clients include Home Depot, FILA USA, The Boy Scouts of America, The United Way, and Disruptor Beam (Developer of Game of Thrones Online Games) — has indicated that Flood will play an integral role in the plans for accelerated growth it has reported since receiving a significant investment from Madison Dearborn Partners and naming Jim Geiger as its new Chief Executive Officer in June of 2015.

Our mandate for Liquid Web is accelerated growth,” noted CEO, Geiger. “With a seasoned executive such as Flood now filling the role of CFO, we have the final organizational piece in place to aggressively pursue growth via the development and acquisition of cutting-edge technologies and services.” He continued, “We’re excited about the additional value these initiatives will add for our existing customers who have awarded us a best-in-class NPS (Net Promoter Score) average of 67 over the last year, on the strength of our Heroic Support.

Flood, most recently, worked as a principal for Simafore, an Ann Arbor, MI-based big data analytics consultancy. Liquid Web reports that Flood’s technical background, in addition to his high-level executive experience, made him an attractive candidate. Prior to his role at Simafore, Flood filled the roles of CFO, COO, and, ultimately, CEO, over the span of his ten years spent with Logicalis — a leading provider of global IT solutions and managed services, comprised of more than 750 professionals.

Along with this news, Liquid Web also reports that interim CFO, Jim Calandra, will remain with the company throughout the year, assisting with the transition and the company’s accelerated initiatives.

Press Release: Liquid Web Launches Redesigned, Responsive Website

LANSING, Mich.— Liquid Web Inc., a premium web hosting provider with locations in Michigan and Arizona, has launched its redesigned website at LiquidWeb.com. With the completion of the full rebuild, the company has added new and enhanced content, including a featured area on the front page for up-to-date customer support statistics as well as a revamped shopping cart that simplifies the ordering process. The website has also been developed to feature a responsive design, adapting its display for optimal viewing on any size/resolution screen.

New Website Details: https://www.liquidweb.com/blog/index.php/new-responsive-website-focuses-on-transparency/

Liquid Web Marketing Director, Jason Grasshoff, on the Decision to Redesign:
“The redesign of our website is a task we could not approach lightly because our customers are some of the most knowledgeable on the Internet when it comes to what makes a great site. We have been updating our LiquidWeb.com on a page-by-page basis for some time, but a full redesign has been on the agenda since our customers began accessing our site on many different devices, from phones to tablets to different monitor set-ups. We are excited not only by the enhanced user experience, but also by the fact that this version maintains a useful, attractive look, regardless of how you choose to view it.

Another primary goal of ours was to ensure the site is representative of our company’s identity. When Liquid Web is brought up in the hosting community, often the first thing people talk about is the speed and availability of our support. Since our Heroic Support team provides that excellent experience, they’re the true star behind our brand. With this and our commitment to transparency in mind, we’ve put them front and center on the new site, by including regularly updated support stats directly on the landing page.”

Changes to the LiquidWeb.com’s appearance and design will be apparent upon visiting for anyone familiar with the website. The company states that it has significantly modernized this user portal to accommodate a growing customer-base, expanding as the company continues to branch out into new areas with its ongoing development in the United States, as well as Europe.
