SingleHop Appoints Industry Veteran Jordan Jacobs as New VP of Products

Successful Product Development and Business Strategy Executive Joins Leading Global Provider of Hosted IT Infrastructure to Help Accelerate Product Development

September 17th, 2013 – Chicago – SingleHop, a global leader in highly automated bare metal and cloud infrastructure, today announced that it has appointed Jordan Jacobs to its leadership team as Vice President of Products. Jacobs brings more than a decade of business strategy and product development experience in the cloud, hosting, and managed services market to SingleHop. As VP of Products, Jacobs will oversee the entire SingleHop product lifecycle through all phases, from conceptualization to market.

Founded in 2006, SingleHop has pioneered the global cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) movement by enabling businesses and service providers in the design, deployment, and management of a wide range of hosted infrastructure solutions from one, global platform. SingleHop’s proprietary automation technology allows organizations to quickly deploy or migrate workloads in the cloud. By integrating its secure global data center footprint, robust remote management toolkit, and industry-leading SLAs, SingleHop helps clients manage their systems while creating better economic efficiencies and a superior overall experience.

SingleHop CEO, Zak Boca, said Jacobs’ unique combination of technical and practical business skills --- spanning from cloud architecture and design to data center engineering --- are an excellent fit with the needs of SingleHop.

“We are excited to be able to attract someone of Jordan’s caliber, who visualizes and fully comprehends the opportunities in the ever-changing cloud space,” Boca said. “He is an accomplished product leader who has been able to successfully leverage his technical skills, combined with adept sales experience, to gain a deep understanding of client problems and, in turn, design well-thought-out and executed products and solutions.”

Prior to joining SingleHop, Jacobs served as Vice President of Product Development and Director of Corporate Strategy for PhoenixNAP. While at PhoenixNAP, Jordan was directly responsible for product development, vision, and strategy across all of the company’s IaaS product lines.

Earlier in his career, Jacobs worked with Pacific Rack as Director, and at Global Net Access as Sales Manager. Jordan also previously was employed by various key players in the hosting industry, and as a successful entrepreneur, built and sold two profitable hosting companies. He studied Computer Science at Southern Polytechnic State University.
