UltraServe continues global expansion with new appointment

12 Dec 2016

UltraServe is eyeing up international growth, with the appointment Vishnu Roy to the newly created role of a vice president of operations.

Roy’s appointment follows hard on the heels of last month’s opening of an UltraServe office in Chicago on the back of United States demand for its SmartStack-powered SAP Hybris deployment and hosting.

The cloud and managed hosting provider, which specialises in providing e-commerce platform-as-a-service, says it is seeing ‘surging demand’ for its services.

Matthew Hyland, UltraServe chief executive, says the company is growing strongly and required someone with experience and expertise to manage bigger and more complex projects.

“Our project portfolio increasingly supports mission-critical projects for large enterprise customers which have higher expectations, so require more management,” Hyland says.

The new role will see Roy - who has been a senior project manager at UltraServe for two years - managing senior project engineers, the service desk and general operations across the business in Australia and internationally.

Prior to joining UltraServe Roy worked with companies including Dimension Data, ASIC and IBM Australia.

Earlier this year the company announced it was gearing up to accelerate its international growth with the appointment of Hyland to the role of chief executive, with founder Samuel Yeats remaining actively involved as a director, guiding the company’s strategic direction from the board.

At the time, Hyland noted that UltraServe had delivered double-digit growth in revenue in the previous year as it pushed into new geographic markets.

The company now has customers in countries including North America, India, Brazil and the United Kingdom.
