WebCentral signs new management

By on

Incognito ASP WebCentral has appointed two new general managers to help drive business across its consumer, SMB and enterprise divisions.

Incognito ASP WebCentral has appointed two new general managers to help drive business across its consumer, SMB and enterprise divisions.

The appointments come hard on the heels of a decision to rename FTR Holdings, which acquired 100 percent of the webhost earlier this year, as WebCentral Group.

WebCentral has promoted direct sales and marketing manager David Lammey to general manager of the company's SMB and consumer division.

Lammey had spent four years as direct sales and marketing manager at WebCentral but would now have responsibility for the Business and Consumer section, call centre sales, technical support teams and corporate marketing, the company said.

Before joining WebCentral, Lammey was a sales and marketing staffer at construction giant Boral. Lammey holds a business communications degree and an MBA.

“Lammey has been instrumental in transforming the culture of WebCentral's direct sales team from simple order-taking to a more customer-focused sales approach. 

During his tenure at WebCentral, Lammey has doubled the company's small to medium-sized customer base,” the company said.

WebCentral appointed former Lexmark International senior manager Martin Ryan to the role of general manager for its enterprise division.

Ryan, a qualified electronics engineer, had been working in IT & T for about 22 years, 10 years of which were in customer service and marketing management positions at Wang Laboratories. He had also worked for ERG and AWA, the company said.

He also had an MBA and university qualifications in finance and marketing, WebCentral said.

“Ryan has specialised in leading growth stage and mature businesses into new markets in ANZ, Asia Pacific & the USA.

In his new role at WebCentral, Ryan will be responsible for developing the company's managed services business in the enterprise arena,” the company said.

ASX-listed FTR Holdings was renamed WebCentral Group earlier this month, a move that the company said at the time signalled a successful integration for the newly acquired company.
WebCentral Group now had two principal operations, web and application hosting company WebCentral and US-based digital recording specialist For the Record.

Andrew Spicer, CEO at WebCentral Group, said the acquisition was expected to affect the entire group's financial results this year.

“For the first time we will be able to consolidate the hosting operation's revenue and profit. Previously only 49.4 percent of WebCentral's profit was included in the group's results due to equity accounting treatment,” Spicer said.

“We have already seen very pleasing first quarter results for the WebCentral Group in line with expectations.”
