Celebrating a decade of business excellence
MESH is proud to announce that 2011 marked the company’s 10th anniversary. Since its ‘birth’ in 2001, the business has been through a great many changes which have shaped the positive philosophy and pro-active service attitudes of all partners and staff.
However, the one thing that has never changed is the motivation to deliver true business excellence.
MESH would like to thank all customers, partners and staff for 10 years of trust, loyalty, co-operation and good will.
MESH GmbH was founded in 2001 by Ernesto Fries Urioste, Human Gharavi and pso online GmbH. Starting with a single rack and a ‘big idea’ the pair nurtured the fledgling company and substantial growth quickly followed. In 2004, Alexander Wolff was appointed as Managing Director to help with the organisation’s growth.
Within three years MESH was the first Level 3 ‘Premium Master Reseller’ in Europe and in 2006 the company was awarded 17th place in the Deloitte Technology ‘Fast 50’ [PDF file].
2007 brought more business accolades, when the Verband der deutschen Internetwirtschaft e.V. placed MESH in the top five of Business Internet Service Providers.
In 2008, Claudia Gharavi, Alexander Wolf’s former deputy, was appointed as his successor and became the first female CEO of a significant, European Internet Service Provider.
One year later, to meet the ever increasing demand for reliable, high quality Colocation, MESH opened its first ‘High Power Density Colocation Floor’ in Dusseldorf providing up to 15 kVA per rack.
By the end of 2009, more ISO certificated data centres had been commissioned across Europe. This was quickly followed by more certifications meeting the stringent Datenschutz regulations.
At the beginning of 2011, MESH opened its 30th POP and 4th Colocation data center in the heart of Dusseldorf. The same year, MESH celebrated ten years in business and released its Enterprise Grade Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform and the innovative Solution as a Service concept (SoaS).
Today MESH is a vibrant, financially healthy and forward-looking company which is 100% owned by its founders and management.
MESH looks forward to offering its customers and partners another decade of excellent business service.
