Just one guy to be exact. Well, and his wife technically (they can battle it out to see who the true founder is). Anyway, Rob LaMear IV had a deep technology background and a simple concept that he would transform into a business: Outsource the IT grunt work so you can keep the focus on innovation.
FrontPages Web Hosting Network was the first iteration of LaMear’s vision. A small team handled basic FrontPage, ASP and PHP web site hosting which would later evolve into SharePoint. In 1999, LaMear's vision would become a reality and Fpweb.net would become the first company to host SharePoint in the cloud.
As the customer-base grew, so did the business. But as the years went by, it started to get a bit crowded with all the services we offered (eCommerce sites, QuickBooks, SharePoint, Exchange, SQL, Project servers, Dedicated Windows servers, ISA Servers, and much more believe it or not). Eventually, we saw the value in focusing all of that energy and expertise into what we're best at.
Fpweb.net became the premier managed cloud and security services provider that you know today thanks to your support and our dedication to adding value to your IT investment. It’s a practice that has allowed us to simplify your infrastructure, unburden your team, and protect your brand.
Bob is the company numbers man, dutifully crossing all of the t’s and dotting the i’s for all our financial planning and reporting needs. When he’s not crunching numbers, he’s traveling across North America on his motorcycle.
Rob is the Founder and CEO of Fpweb.net. His mid-90's venture into hosting services and cloud computing gained traction with the introduction of Microsoft FrontPage (SharePoint's predecessor). From there, Fpweb.net has grown alongside SharePoint, adding value to businesses all over the world with dedicated, managed SharePoint. Outside of work, Rob loves spending time with his family and never misses an opportunity to join a pickup game of soccer in the park.
