CEO and President, Russell P. Reeder

We’re excited to announce that the CEO World Awards®, an annual awards program honoring CEOs and organizations of all types and sizes around the globe, recently recognized OVHcloud’s leadership team with two awards:

  • Our CEO and President, Russell P. Reeder, took home the gold in the CEO Achievement of the Year category
  • OVHcloud management team has been named a silver winner in the Management Team of the Year category

Russ has a strong entrepreneurial history of building and leading disruptive, high-growth businesses. He has more than 25 years of technology and brand-building experience under his belt and has held a host of leadership positions at start-up ventures as well as Fortune 500 companies, including Oracle and Mobile Oil.

In 2017, Russ drove the successful acquisition of vCloud® Air™ from VMware® to jumpstart our presence in the U.S. market as a leading cloud provider. This milestone launched us into year three of our five-year roadmap, only three months after we were established.

“I am continually impressed by the mindset and resourcefulness of our leadership team.  I am honored to be named a gold winner by the CEO World Awards,” says Reeder. “Businesses today need committed, highly agile and collaborative teams.   As a leading global cloud provider in a highly competitive industry, our employees, our customer-first approach, and our drive to execute, makes our success possible.”

Russ handpicked our team of seasoned executives for the launch of OVHcloud, many of whom have a successful track record of launching and growing cutting edge technology companies. With Russ at the helm, our award-winning management team consists of:

  • Dean Gels, Chief Financial Officer
