MADISON, WIS., May 23, 2011 — 5NINES, an independent, locally owned Cloud service provider based in downtown Madison, has experienced continued growth over the past year and added eight new employees in just the last six months. Based on past growth and projections, 5NINES plans to have 35 employees by 2012. Three of 5NINES’ recent hires include: John Wagner, director, business development; Pam Krugman, business development manager; and Patrick Downey, business development manager.

Nearing 30 full-time employees, 5NINES found it needed to expand its headquarters in the Network222 building. Fortunately, there was an open office next door, and they were able to break down a wall and add about 1800 square feet. 5NINES’ newly completed space includes an open conference room and a lounge area, where employees have built a PC-based emulated retro gaming system.

“Our company philosophy is ‘enjoy technology,’” says Todd Streicher, president of 5NINES. “Our people truly do that at work and at play. We enjoy using technology and helping people solve problems with technology. It’s part of the reason we started the business, and it’s also a benefit we enable our customers to experience.”

Founded in 2001, 5NINES is in its second stage growth phase, which includes a complete Cloud Data Center expansion in Milwaukee as well as other Midwest cities.
