UltraServe strengthens team for global growth

Matt HylandGlobal ecommerce cloud business UltraServe today announces a strengthened management team as the company prepares to accelerate its international growth.

UltraServe has appointed Matthew Hyland to the role of Chief Executive Officer, charged with managing the company’s operations and international expansion, while the company’s founder Samuel Yeats will guide its strategic direction from a strengthened board. Matthew has previously worked within the business as Chief Financial Officer and strategic advisor.

Samuel Yeats said appointing Matthew as CEO was a logical step for UltraServe. “We’re recording strong year-on-year growth and have successfully launched our services internationally,” he said.
“We already have customers in multiple countries, including North America, India, Brazil and the UK, and we plan to accelerate that pace by expanding our international presence.

“Matt is the ideal person to take on the CEO role because he has immense experience working in related industries with a particular focus on enterprise B2B (Business to Business) clients, which is UltraServe’s space. I’ll stay actively involved in guiding UltraServe as a director.”

Matthew’s extensive business experience includes the role of CFO at NextGen Group; CFO and Head of Operations at Fox Sports Australia; as well as senior commercial and management roles with Telstra, Optus and British Telecom during the past two decades.

Matthew said he had accepted the new role because of UltraServe’s potential for ongoing strong growth. “I’m excited by the opportunity of taking this business from its current stage to realising its significant future potential,” he said.

“When I looked at the UltraServe business, I saw its market-leading technology with a market position that provides a really sound foundation from which to build. Under Samuel’s leadership, UltraServe has carved out a very strong position with a unique service offering that stands out from more traditional cloud-hosting companies. I firmly believe that UltraServe has huge growth potential over the coming years.”

Founded in 2000, UltraServe is the Australian-owned market leader in this country’s cloud and managed services industry. In 2009, UltraServe became the first company to launch a true on-demand cloud product in Australia.
