ST. LOUIS Feb. 25, 2011 Bill Fathers Jim Ousley
Fathers joined Savvis in 2007 as senior vice president, financial services business owner and global head of product development. Later serving as the company’s sales and marketing chief, Fathers was placed in charge of Savvis’ global strategic business direction as well as its worldwide sales execution, solutions consulting and go-to-market initiatives.
A veteran business development executive with proven success building leading-edge go-to-market strategies in the financial services, media and telecom industries, Fathers began his business career as a principal consultant at PA Consulting Group. He subsequently moved to Thomson Reuters where he was appointed managing director of a pan-European managed service business and later senior vice president, global head of development.
"In every position he’s held, Bill has exhibited strong leadership," Ousley said. "Savvis’ international presence and market share have grown significantly through his efforts. As president, Bill will further focus on pursuing these alliances in addition to his existing responsibilities to help insure our position as a leader in global managed hosting and cloud services. It will also allow me more time to pursue additional strategic initiatives around the world."
"Savvis’ reputation for innovation, service flexibility and market expertise has placed it at the forefront of the revolution in cloud-based infrastructure. Our assets have allowed us to build a truly impressive sales organization through both traditional and alternative channels," Fathers said. "While many of my duties will not be changing, I’m looking forward to undertaking additional efforts to expand our networks, better serve current customers and uncover new sales opportunities."
