"Mark's experience spans over 15 years in customer operations in the hosting and web services industry for some of today's industry leaders which makes Mark exceptionally qualified to position the Company's resources, to best serve our new and existing customers, as well as provide exceptional guidance in the ever-changing Cloud, eCommerce and mobile environments to our client base.

"Responsiveness and quality technical support continue to be our hallmark and with Mark in this new position, our clients will see an enhanced approach to 'exceptional customer service'. Since we've acquired CrystalTech Web Hosting in 2005, our presence in the technology space has tripled in terms of revenue, pretax profits, customer count and EBITA. The change we've made in positioning Mark is for the purpose of continuing to have Newtek Business Services, 'The Small Business Authority', be dominant in the area of servicing technological intermediaries such as designers, developers and resellers, as well as end user retail clients that do not have the technological sophistication of professional intermediaries. Our existing product offerings of web design, web hosting and cloud computing are state of the art and need to be perpetually reintroduced in the fast, ever-changing world of technology services and solutions. As we roll out new cloud applications in payroll, ecommerce and insurance services and benefits, we will continue to provide state of the art 24/7 customer service with limited hold times, precise execution and increased awareness of our technological innovations, cloud computing business applications and all forms of our rapidly growing ecommerce segment."
