Tom Sepper

Greetings!

I’m currently the Chief Operating Officer at World Wide Web Hosting, a global web hosting provider across multiple brand names. Our largest and most well-known brand is Site5.

Over the course of my tenure at WWWH, I have fulfilled every imaginable non-technical role. In seeing World Wide Web Hosting through two separate acquisitions, I have played a vital role in guiding the company to quadruple its annual revenue and achieve efficiencies and growth across all functions.

I am a customer-centric thinker with expertise in remote/distributed team management. I am a process, procedure, and organizational junkie who takes great pride in developing new and efficient ways to best achieve goals.

Aside from the broad responsibilities listed on my resume, I’m a high-level thinker who’s able to view, prioritize, and approach situations with a comprehensive understanding of the various touch points within the company. I don’t shy away from decision-making.

Feel free to contact me with any opportunities you feel I may be interested in!

Hiring Tom was one of the best decisions I ever made at Site5, plain and simple. Prior to selling the company, I worked closely with Tom on a daily basis.

His skillset is diverse and always expanding. He is a true professional, and a great asset to his company.
