Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:
I had the opportunity to work with Lawton in the same team for 3 years, where he pitched, won and managed the most valued accounts. A clear vision and deep insight of the technology matched together with an honest approach made it easy to deliver to our customers. For the technical lead it’s key to promise what can be delivered and Lawton did just that, paying close attention to the road-map and providing valuable feedback, this approach allowed the team to deliver more value and relevant features. On the personal side it’s easy to bond with Lawton, his personal skills and personality make personal and professional relations productive and lasting.

Chief Architect at LeaseWeb CDN
Lawton is one of my personal heros. He is among few people that swapped a successful career in insurance and as a professor to taste the fruits of the internet hosting business. He made his dreams in this industry become reality from nothing. Lawton is very solution driven, analytical, trustworthy and probably most important: great to sit with and have an inspiring conversation with him! I can highly recommend Lawton, both as a former colleague and as a friend.
[Xross Connect] has been great at advising and helping our business. Our initial interactions suggest they are dynamic, visionary, well-connected, and also friendly and helpful.
