Amsterdam, Netherlands, July 1st 2019 - Leaseweb, the global hosting provider, today announced the appointment of Wilfried Dudink as Managing Director of Leaseweb CDN B.V. In this position, Dudink will look to grow the CDN portion of the business by creating best-of-breed multi and hybrid CDN services and combining these with Leaseweb’s larger portfolio to provide customers with a complete solution.
"I believe that Leaseweb is perfectly positioned to provide customers with the right combination of hosting solutions to be successful, so I am thrilled to be involved in further building this part of the business,” said Dudink. “CDNs are going to be continually more critical to the success of our customers as content - live and on-demand video, gaming and eSports, and IoT and software downloads - grows exponentially. All of this content needs to be readily available, at any location, with the highest quality of experience. Leaseweb with the new Multi CDN platform has the ability to make this happen by using the best connected CDN PoP, with the lowest latency for a particular piece of content and any given time.
Dudink brings over 25 years of industry experience to the position – prior to joining Leaseweb, he spent seven years at CenturyLink focusing specifically on CDNs, website acceleration and media delivery in EMEA. Dudink has previously held positions at companies including Deutsche Telekom, Telia International Carrier, and Limelight Networks, where he gained market and product experience on CDNs and infrastructure. He was also chairman of the Amsterdam Internet Exchange.
“The CDN portion of our portfolio has always provided a reliable distribution system for our customers, but there is a lot of untapped potential from our globally distributed network and combined offerings,” said Con Zwinkels, CEO, Leaseweb Global. “Wilfried is exactly what this business needs to take it to the next level and show customers what a CDN can really do for them.”
Leaseweb’s CDN portfolio combines the leading global and regional CDNs, including Leaseweb’s own CDN, with a state-of-the-art switching platform, and partnership with industry-leading providers to enhance the delivery in media, gaming, and download solutions. Their CDN portfolio includes a Multi-CDN and dedicated Private CDN.
