Fpweb.net - Meet some of the team
Have you met the Fpweb.net Team? We’re more than just a voice on the phone, a Twitter account, or a bunch of automatic SharePoint Farm-dispensing wunderkinds! We’re a group built around SharePoint expertise and true customer care, yes, but we’re also family-orientated, fun-loving coworkers! We work hard to balance dedicated SharePoint support and SharePoint expertise with our own interests and hobbies. If you haven’t already met us at a conference or selling SharePoint on the side of the road, here we are:
Peter is the wordsmith of the Fpweb.net family. As the company ‘Elocutionator', Peter is charged with managing the Fpweb.net blog as well as working within the Marketing department to develop copy for various initiatives like the company newsletter and website. He considers himself very lucky to be able to merge his passion for writing with his job.
If he's not in the office, Peter is typically at the store purchasing a bag of Skittles or in London. But wherever and whatever he's doing, Peter's usually writing about it.
Build Project Manager
Along with being the Level 2 Support team manager, Eddie is your trusted point of contact during the build of your SharePoint environment. He cracks the whip to make sure it’s completed as quickly as possible, even to the point of shooting some unsuspecting Engineers with a Nerf gun from time to time to get things moving along. An adventurous person by nature, Eddie enjoys travelling and experiencing new things. He leaves the Nerf gun at the office and returns home to his wife and small, fuzzy Bichon puppy Leo, named after his favorite Ninja Turtle.
SharePoint Support Manager
Joe spends the hours at Fpweb.net managing the team that is responsible for supporting every customer and making sure help is readily available when clients need it. Joe and the rest of the Support Team are dedicated to taking care of you and keeping your SharePoint environment running smoothly. When he’s not reviewing or escalating support tickets, Joe can usually be found strapped to a guitar and playing music in and around the St Louis area. He’s a singer songwriter that has been playing music since he was 12 years old.
Customer Care Receptionist
Mary is the friendly voice you're likely to hear when you call Fpweb.net. As the company's receptionist, Mary works hard to ensure that, instead of automated messages and robotic service, customers only receive exceptional, dedicated SharePoint service and support. When not working, Mary is busy saving stray animals wandering outside her home, talking astrology with anyone who will listen, spending far too much money on shoes and handbags, and being Starbucks' biggest fan!
SharePoint Administrator/Lead Build Engineer
Joe has impressive experience building SharePoint farms and has built a majority of Fpweb.net's customer environments based on unique specifications ranging from single server multi-tenant to 10 server farms and larger. Joe enjoys working with clients to ensure their environments are functioning at an optimal level. But Joe can quickly shed technology and become an outdoorsman who enjoys boating, fishing, hunting and being a competent handyman who saves time for softball and CrossFit.
Rob LaMear IV
Rob started the company from scratch and believes that the key to Fpweb.net's success has been its people and the energy they bring, hands down. Rob has been with SharePoint since its inception and his passion for customer care and delivering a premium product has set a new standard in SharePoint Hosting. As much as he likes work and technology, Rob loves spending time with his family completely unplugged and has never missed an opportunity to join a pickup game of soccer in the park.
Lead SharePoint Engineer
Andy is the technical lead for SharePoint deployments, escalated support incidents, and research and development of hosting plans. Andy strives to stay on top of the cutting edge Microsoft and private cloud technology while innovating hosted SharePoint solutions with his team. While away from Fpweb.net HQ, Andy is very busy getting accustomed to fatherhood with his new daughter. When a little free time emerges, Andy enjoys attempting Ozzie Smith catches on the softball field and being tortured at the local CrossFit gym.
Jesse is your personal, customer advocate and serves as the point of contact for questions you may not know who to ask. Whether it's a technical, billing or renewal question, Jesse will point you in the right direction.
When he's not fighting for our customers, Jesse coaches his 8 year old, future superstar soccer goalie and cheers on his oldest daughter on the high school dance team. After driving his wife crazy with his obsessive house cleaning, Jesse relaxes and watches a game with the real princess of the house: Kimi, his Beagle mix.

Ellie's marketing efforts have helped Fpweb.net make a name for itself within the SharePoint Community. There is nothing Ellie enjoys more than a good brainstorming session with her outstanding creative team and keeping her finger on the pulse of marketing.
SharePoint Relationship Manager
Amber's primary focus is the customer and is motivated by their satisfaction and success. As the customer advocate within Fpweb.net, Amber spends her days assisting Fpweb.net's customers from requests about their hosted site(s) to issue escalations.
In Amber's free time, if she's not enjoying the company of her husband and the four boxers running around the house, she's working a St. Louis Boxer rescue event or relaxing at the local casinos. Video poker may be her favorite, but Amber can be a bit of a card shark when she wants!
Shelly is the backbone of the sales team, keeping them on track throughout the sales process by ensuring our new customers are responded to in a timely manner and are always provided the support they need throughout the contract process. But when she's not helping out our sales team, Shelly is keeping her family on track at home. She enjoys cooking and gardening, especially when the meal involves ingredients from her fruits and vegetable gardens in her backyard.
