Web hosting provider Media Temple has named Russell P. Reeder president and chief operating officer, and Albert Lopez chief technology officer. Both executives will report to Media Temple CEO Demian Sellfors.
Reeder will be responsible for leading Media Temple’s global business operations and strategy. According to his LinkedIn profile, Reeder has been working in his current role for two and a half months.
Reeder worked with digital publishing solutions provider LibreDigital prior to his appointment. As president and CEO he led the company to its acquisition by RR Donnelley. He has more than 12 years of senior executive experience with companies like Oracle and Mobil Oil. He has a bachelor’s degree in computer information systems from James Madison University, and is on the Young Presidents’ Organization board.
Lopez will direct new technology initiatives while extending its scalable platform for continued growth, the press release says. His LinkedIn profile indicates that he has been working with Media Temple since May. Prior to Media Temple, Lopez worked with Reeder as CTO and VP corporate development of LibreDigital.
“Russell Reeder and Albert Lopez are a great team and make wonderful additions to the Media Temple family,” CEO and co-founder Demian Sellfors said in a statement. “Their expertise in driving strategy and growth will be incredible assets as we continue to provide premium services to companies looking for a strategic web hosting and cloud services partner.”
“Media Temple is an exceptional brand that offers scalable web hosting and cloud services unlike any of its competitors,” Reeder said in a statement. “I look forward to creating innovative products and continuing to build solid partnerships with our diverse range of clients.”
In February, Media Temple ordered a public relations firm client to move its servers to another hosting company after its Federal Trade Commission’s websites were hacked for the second time in less than a month.
