The PlusServer group is accelerating its growth and plans to expand internationally and to establish itself in additional business segments. With PlusHolding GmbH, a new group structure has been created for this purpose, which bundles all the PlusServer group companies.
Dr. Oliver Mauss, who has more than 20 years of experience in the hosting and telecommunications industry, will become CEO of PlusHolding GmbH on July 1, 2018. As the CEO of 1&1 Internet, he has led one of Europe's largest hosting providers, building it up organically and consolidating the European market. Prior to joining 1&1, Oliver Mauss held various roles within the Vodafone group, including head of the global portfolio of business clients. Oliver Mauss studied in Aachen, Germany, and earned his doctorate there in electrical engineering.
“PlusServer is optimally positioned in its current business areas and has great potential to expand successfully internationally as well as into related business areas,” said Mauss. “We will seize this opportunity to further accelerate growth and develop the PlusServer group into the leading European cloud provider. I'm really looking forward to working with the PlusServer team led by Thomas Noglik.”
Thomas Noglik will remain CEO of PlusServer GmbH. In this role, he will continue to be responsible for the business units he successfully manages in Germany, such as Managed Hosting and Private Cloud, as well as the newly established Managed Public Cloud and Enterprise IT divisions.
Christian Mogge, Senior Partner of PlusServer investors BC Partners and Chairman of the Advisory Board of the PlusServer group, emphasised: “With Oliver Mauss, we were able to attract one of the most successful and experienced managers in the German hosting market to manage the PlusServer group. By taking this step, we are creating the conditions for the group's continued growth and the development of related business areas.”
