I am Lex Boost, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of LeaseWeb USA. Together with my team, I am responsible for the development and execution of LeaseWeb’s core vision and strategy across the United States. I enjoy the challenge of working continuously to expand LeaseWeb’s global presence and to strengthen our customer connections by increasing the number of our data center locations. I love to explore innovative ways of working that would enhance our customer experience.
With over 18 years’ experience in the digital industry, I have gained leadership experience from a broad range of organizations and cultures, including both B2B and B2C markets, in startups, as well as large corporations. In previous roles, I have worked as the CEO of one of the largest dating websites in the Netherlands, owned by the European TV giant RTL - Bertelsmann. Prior to that, I was Head of Digital for PaperlinX, one of the world’s largest communication materials merchant, with over $6 Billion in revenues and over 6000 people worldwide. I also have extensive experience managing start up companies from 1997 to 2012, in the SaaS and Mobile application space.
I studied at Delta University in Utrecht (Faculty of Business Economics) where I earned a BA in Business Economics. Since then, I’ve followed a number of different courses, and most recently, an executive course at Nyenrode Business University. When not working, I enjoy classic cars (also racing them), traveling, attending live concerts, and playing tennis.
