world's largest one-stop shop for cloud IT services and business
applications, has announced the appointment of Ed Macnair as managing
director EMEA and Eric Weiss as senior vice president of marketing.
Macnair is the founder and former CEO of SaaSID, a UK-based vendor of
single sign-on (SSO) and web application security software, which was
acquired by Intermedia in September. He is responsible for driving

more than 25 years, Macnair has held senior management positions with
MessageLabs, Symantec, IBM and Xerox. Prior to founding SaaSID, he
was CEO of UK-based email and web content security vendor Marshal
Ltd., a company that he merged with US-based 8e6 Technologies, after
tripling Marshal's international revenues within three years.
SaaSID provides organizations with centralized control over
employees' access to cloud services, business applications and social
media, while giving employees the convenience of SSO for all their
cloud services. Intermedia has announced that SaaSID's existing cloud
service will be integrated into its HostPilot control panel in the
first quarter of 2014. In addition, Intermedia is investing heavily
in its EMEA operations, with plans to double headcount at SaaSID's UK
sales and research and development centers. Intermedia currently has
more than 90,000 business customers and 13,500 resellers worldwide.
Eric Weiss, Intermedia's new SVP of marketing, brings over 18 years'
experience gained primarily in rapidly growing SMB and cloud
services. He has a strong track record of branding, launching and
growing businesses internationally in Intermedia's key categories of
IT services and telecommunications. Prior to joining Intermedia,
Weiss led marketing at Axcient, where he helped catapult it into the
number one fastest-growing IT security company nationwide, according
to Inc. As SVP of Marketing at GreenRoad, Weiss implemented
rebranding and marketing strategies that led to growing the company's
booked revenue from $1 million to more than $30 million in two years.
As CMO of Covad Communications, Weiss launched the company's SaaS
offerings and grew its cloud services to more than $100 million.
Weiss was also COO and a co-founder of ITXC, where he grew revenue to
$350 million and became the largest international VoIP wholesaler
before finally leading the company to a successful IPO.
"Intermedia is rapidly increasing headcount in the EMEA region to
support our existing customers and partners, as well as extending
Intermedia's services to SaaSID's customers," said Phil Koen,
Intermedia chairman and CEO. "At the same time, we're building a
global brand and marketing it to hundreds of thousands of small and
medium-sized businesses. We welcome both Ed Macnair and Eric Weiss to
our team and look forward to working with them and the SaaSID team to
grow our company across the US, EMEA and the world."
