gridscale appoints Henrik Hasenkamp as Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
gridscale, provider of the world's easiest IaaS solution, has appointed co-founder Henrik Hasenkamp (33) as CEO of the company. Henrik Hasenkamp is responsible for the strategic direction of the IaaS and PaaS provider. In addition, he assumes responsibility for investor relations.
Henrik Hasenkamp founded gridscale in 2014 together with Michael Balser and Torsten Urbas, but has hitherto kept out of the company's operations. "As founder, I was never far away from the team. But it makes a big difference to experience everything closely and invest every minute of my time in the success of gridscale. I'm looking forward to working with my friends and the great team to shape gridscale's future"., says Hasenkamp.
Henrik Hasenkamp was most recently brand managing director at Host Europe Group, where he was responsible for the former intergenia brands server4you and serverloft. Hasenkamp managed the post-merger integration of intergenia’s mass market business into Host Europe and implemented a new brand strategy.
Hasenkamp began his career in the hosting market at PlusServer AG in 2003, where he occupied numerous positions and worked directly for the board for almost a decade. After his time at PlusServer AG, Hasenkamp first switched to Berlin and later to Frankfurt, where he brought his hosting expertise to Vodafone’s new business division "Cloud & Hosting Germany".
Kristin Müller, investment manager at the High-Tech Gründerfonds, Germany: "We have gotten to know Henrik as a very dedicated and determined person. The extensive experience in the hosting business can clearly be felt among the founders.“
