"This appointment reflects where OC3 is headed, and it starts at the top to stay at the top," said OC3 Networks owner Ilan Mishan. "Jim's experience will be invaluable to OC3, and I look forward to all that we are bringing to ... our clients."
"I am very excited about OC3 Networks' growth opportunity in 2008 and beyond," Gurol said. "Enterprises and content providers are all looking for advanced, secure and inexpensive managed hosting solutions, along with a reliable colocation provider. I believe we now have a new team in place to facilitate the growth in this high-demand market.
"To accomplish the goals of the company and to meet your expectations, I will plan to immediately upgrade the company's CRM software and work directly with clients."
Gurol released a short preliminary list of upcoming projects, including a new website allowing real-time availability of services and information, and completing the integration of the CRM software Ubersmith DE.
