Swizznet today announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Bob Hollander as President and member of the Board of Directors effective immediately.

“During this time of IT transformation and our clients’ move to cloud-based services, there is no better person to lead Swizznet than Bob Hollander,” said Mike Callan, Swizznet’s Founder, CEO and Member of the Board of Directors. “Bob is a proven leader with deep experience in technology, scaling organizations and leading high-performing teams. His ability to create innovative go-to-market strategies that align with clients’ needs and deliver high growth is exactly what Swizznet needs as we enter our next chapter of expanded growth and services innovation.”

Previously, Hollander served as Senior Vice President at InterVision where he was responsible for strategy and growth of managed, hosted and cloud services. Bob also served as Senior Vice President, North America for Savvis, which was a Gartner Magic Quadrant leader in hosting, colocation and private cloud solutions.

“Swizznet is a truly unique company that has built an exceptional technology platform and service experience around clients’ true business needs,” said Bob Hollander. “The market shift is underway in small to medium-sized businesses as they leave on-premise solutions for always-on, secure and backed-up ITaaS solutions in the cloud. Swizznet’s deep understanding of accounting and business applications along with our partnership with the leading accounting and ERP software providers has us best positioned to capture this market move. My objective is to accelerate growth and bring more value and service to our customers as they make the move to cloud.”

“We are fortunate to add someone of Bob Hollander’s caliber and experience to the Swizznet Leadership team,” said Kevin Fahey, Managing Director at Bluff Point Associates. “We are at a critical moment and we need seasoned leadership to successfully implement our growth strategy and take advantage of the market opportunities ahead.” Bluff Point Associates acquired Swizznet in June of this year.
