Steadfast, a leading provider of managed cloud hosting, dedicated servers, colocation, hybrid hosting, and disaster recovery, announced Karl Zimmerman, will transition to the roles of Chairman and CEO. Joe Bong, former Chief Revenue Officer (CRO), has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Executive Vice President of Sales.

Zimmerman’s new roles will allow him to focus on the overall direction and future of the company and its products, building long term relationships, and creating benefits for customers and employees. Bong will take lead on the day-to-day management.

“Promoting Joe Bong to COO of Steadfast will allow him to utilize his over 25 years of experience in industry,” Zimmerman said. “The company has grown as a result of his focus as the CRO, and this move will allow him to bring that drive and energy to everyday operations; he’ll unify our mission across all departments including sales, implementation and support.”

Additionally, Steadfast has hired Jamie Madison as marketing manager. Madison comes to Steadfast with marketing, communications and events experience from startup organizations, large nonprofits and Fortune 500 companies; she is an alumnus of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.

“We have a great product, and Jamie will use her skills in social media, marketing and events to connect with our clients, and further spread the word about Steadfast,” said Bong. “We’re taking our message to the next level, and will hit the market with both specials and important industry information, including thought leadership from our subject matter experts.”

Steadfast has also hired data center technicians Ricardo Camilo, Yamil Moyeno and Mohammad Hasan for the new data center in Edison, NJ; they have been preparing the data center to be fully up and running in late May. The new facility will serve the New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania regions.
