Superb Internet Relocates Headquarters to Honolulu Hawaii and Fills Key Senior Management Positions

Just wanted to share an upcoming press release with you regarding Superb Internet. We realize this release comes in contrast with the current depressed economic situation and we believe it may come as a surprise too many but offer some glimmer of hope that the job market and eventually the economy will find a foot hold soon.

Superb Internet Corporation, one of the oldest and most reputable web hosting companies in the world, announced the opening of a new corporate office headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii. The company has taken up residence in the exclusive First Hawaiian Bank Tower, in the heart of Honolulu’s financial district. The move is seen as central to the company’s strategy of attracting and retaining key talent, and has already paid off with the filling of multiple key senior management positions with extremely experienced and talented individuals who will help take the company to the next level.

The company also announced that it will be offering promotional discounts and local account representation specifically to Hawaii based customers. This level of service is uncommon in the hosting industry and will provide local customers with unprecedented quality and support. The intent of these offerings is in part to encourage further growth and development within the local business community and tech industry.

Mr. Haralds Jass (President and CEO) said, “We are pleased that in an era of economic uncertainty we are in a position of continued strong growth, remain profitable and are (as we always have been) 100% debt free. We are very pleased to offer our valued employees an alternative to the normal benefits associated with corporate life.

We are excited to see an established hosting company moving to Hawaii! Its great that you are creating jobs, especially given the current climate. We hope to see more of you and the Superb team on TechHui.
Aloha Patrick. It sounds like you have a great team! I was wondering, are you planning to build a datacenter in Hawaii as well?
Our focus will be providing global solutions with local support. At this time I do not foresee a datacenter being built here.
