Welcome Thorsten Einig, OpenSRS’ New Managing Director, Europe

It gives me great pleasure to welcome Thorsten Einig to the OpenSRS team as our new Managing Director, Europe. Thorsten brings a wealth of experience in the hosting and internet industry, and we’re excited to have him leading the charge as we continue to support and grow our OpenSRS business in Europe!

Thorsten has more than ten years of experience in the hosting and domain industry. He spent eight years with 1&1 Internet in both Germany – being in charge of 1&1’s domain business – and the USA, and last held the position of Business Development Manager for 1&1 in North America. Most recently, Thorsten worked as a Senior Product Manager at Leaseweb B.V. in the Netherlands.

Thorsten’s first-hand knowledge of the hosting industry and his depth of experience, specifically in terms of understanding the unique needs of the European market, will be of great benefit to our existing customers in Europe. We’ve tasked Thorsten with the responsibility for growing our business in Europe while still maintaining and reinforcing the existing strong relationships that we have with our European resellers.

Thorsten will be based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, while his team will remain in the UK to bridge Canada and Europe.

  1. Adam,

    The post was pre-existing. Thorsten is replacing someone that was in the role of Sales Director– a 100% focus on new business sales. We thought we would take this as an opportunity to redefine the scope of the role. When we went looking, we wanted someone with a strong background in the hosting industry, which is consistent with our consultative approach to working with our partners.

  2. Thanks Dave. Does it signal a move into the web hosting business?

    Elliot, I think you’d spend too much time tugging at your collar. :)


  3. No, this is not a move into the web hosting business. But we do find if valuable to built out our team with people with a strong knowledge of the hosting industry.

    The more we understand our customers, the better we become as as supplier.
