managed

Naaldwijk, The Netherlands – Worldstream, a fast-growing global Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider with more than 15,000 dedicated servers installed in its company-owned data centers in Naaldwijk, the Netherlands, has hired Ivo Roomer (47) as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Mr. Roomer has many years of leadership experience in this industry, including at Eurofiber Group, Leaseweb and Easynet. He succeeds Lennert Vollebregt (33), one of the founders of Worldstream, effective as of September 1, 2020. Mr. Vollebregt will remain closely involved as a shareholder and will be serving on the new Advisory Board to be set up.

Over the past 17 years, Ivo Roomer has worked as a manager and board member in various management positions in the field of Sales, Customer Services and Merger & Acquisition. He worked at Leaseweb, Eurofiber Group, Easynet (acquired by Interoute in 2015), VNU Media and energy company E.ON, among other companies. Most recently, Mr. Roomer was responsible for Customer Services within the management team of connectivity provider Eurofiber. Eurofiber Group is a provider of telecommunications and network infrastructure services in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.


Ivo Roomer is hired as the new CEO of Worldstream to drive the next stage of growth. It opens a new chapter for the company founded in 2006 by Lennert Vollebregt and Dirk Vromans (CTO). The strategy will be focused on further international expansion – on the growth in personnel numbers and addition of foreign branches, and the implementation of mechanisms to safeguard customer and personnel satisfaction during the company’s international growth path.

Worldstream strengthened its management team in 2019 with six board members from their own ranks and hired their CFO from EY. Worldstream founder Lennert Vollebregt now believes the time is right to appoint a seasoned board member as Worldstream’s new CEO, someone with extensive corporate experience.

“In recent years, we have been able to build a solid personnel base and a corporate culture that radiates positivity, something that is reflected in the highly professional IaaS services and data center infrastructure we deliver to customers globally,” says Lennert Vollebregt. “We are pleased that Ivo Roomer will be joining us. He is a highly experienced management professional with broad enterprise experience in our industry, but also a real people manager who is capable of preserving our positivity-driven culture and encouraging the entrepreneurial intrinsic motivation of our employees. As a management team, we therefore believe that he is the right person to lead our fast-growing organization and manage the further expansion of Worldstream in the Netherlands and globally in a professional manner.”

90.000 Dedicated Servers, M&A

Worldstream intends to expand the current number of dedicated servers for customers in its data centers from 15.000 to 90.000 servers in the next few years. Worldstream already has concrete plans to significantly expand the data center capacity in Naaldwijk, the Netherlands, and thus prepare the capacity for this server growth. The company’s portfolio of IaaS services will also be broadened, including the addition of software-defined functionality through which clients can flexibly set up their IT infrastructures on regional and global scales. Next to that Worldstream has plans to roll out data center capacity and offices elsewhere in the world, in Europe and the United States.

As a manager, Ivo Roomer is used to working in organizations with international operations, also outside the Netherlands. From 2010 to 2012, for example, he worked for IaaS provider Leaseweb in Frankfurt. His responsibility back then was to lead the integration and day-to-day operations of Netdirekt, an industry peer which Leaseweb had acquired.

“Organizations with minimal growth, that’s not where I can make a difference,” says Ivo Roomer, Worldstream’s new CEO. “A company with high-dynamic growth, that’s what I find challenging and most enjoyable to work with. That’s my habitat. By now I have a lot of experience within the data center, IaaS and telecom industry. These markets by definition often show high-dynamic growth.”

“I see a lot of potential for organic growth of the Worldstream organization, but also, for example, for M&A activities, for acquisitions in the industry,” says Roomer. “Fortunately, I am surrounded by a strong management team, with tremendously driven professionals who take their responsibilities and continuously challenge and refine themselves and each other. It’s also a flat organization with little or no hierarchy. That suits me well. I am not a directive leader.”

Ivo Roomer holds a Master of Science in Business Administration from the Erasmus University in Rotterdam. He also studied for six months in the United States. During his career he further completed several master classes and courses in management at Erasmus University, as well as an M&A and Corporate Strategy program for general managers at INSEAD.

Advisory Board, Lennert Vollebregt

Taking seat in Worldstream’s Advisory Board to be set up, Lennert Vollebregt will continue to be closely involved in the management strategy of the company and quality assurance by sharing his knowledge and leveraging his many years of entrepreneurial experience. It is expected that the Worldstream Advisory Board will be further expanded at a later date.

“As an entrepreneur, I will also be focusing on company shareholdings and supervisory positions in other technology companies, to help them grow as well,” says Vollebregt. “You may think of companies with similar dynamics of technology combined with rapid growth. I am further interested in real estate project development, especially residential real estate, which is also something I’ll be engaged with in the period ahead.”

WASHINGTON D.C. – The Internet Infrastructure Coalition (“i2Coalition”), the leading voice for web hosting companies, data centers, domain registrars and registries, cloud infrastructure providers, managed services providers and related tech, and The Domain Name Association (“DNA”), a nonprofit global business association that represents the interests of the domain name industry, have announced their intent to merge, forming the largest Internet infrastructure advocacy group in North America.

The combined association will operate under the name i2Coalition and maintain the i2Coalition’s existing organizational and management structure. The DNA will be represented by two members on the Board of Directors. A DNA-branded working group will also be created to continue to advance the DNA’s mission to protect and empower businesses and individuals with education and engagement that underscores the importance, benefits and opportunities of domain names.


The DNA is the first-ever industry trade association representing the interests of the domain name industry and plays a vital role in helping consumers, businesses, public-benefit organizations and others understand the benefits and take advantage of the Internet name space. Since i2Coalition’s formal launch in 2012, it has worked with Internet infrastructure providers to advocate for sensible policies, design and reinforce best practices, create industry standards and build awareness of how the Internet works through an array of working groups.

Through this merger, the mission of the DNA will be more comprehensively empowered by i2Coalition’s working groups and associated initiatives. Effective July 28, 2020, this strategic alliance positions the combined association to be the most complete representation of the Internet industry in North America. In addition to amplifying the reach and capabilities for members, the merger enables access to an expanded set of resources and economies of scale that will allow the collective to mount more far-reaching and expansive campaigns to ensure policy doesn’t impede growth, knowledge and access to the Internet and its resources. Effective upon the close of the merger, a new DNA working group within the i2Coalition’s existing construct will be implemented with a formation meeting scheduled within 30 days.

“The merger of our organizations underpins the mission of both the DNA and the i2Coalition, combining our mutual dedication to Internet industry best practices and policies to empower continued growth. Combined, we represent over 100 organization members and their online business interests,” says Christian Dawson, Co-Founder of the i2Coalition. “Our commitment to the DNA’s mission is at the core of this merger, and the priorities of both organizations remain as strong as ever. We look forward to going forth with the expanded capabilities and amplified voice that this newly formed collaborative provides.”

“The mission of the DNA has always been to spread awareness, promote growth, offer resources and facilitate communication about innovation and value in the Internet domain name space,” adds Statton Hammock, founding DNA Board member and current Board Secretary. “Our mission aligns well with that of the i2Coalition, and I look forward to remaining part of the new organization and to creating an even larger impact.”

“Domain names are a key part of the growth of the Internet infrastructure, and the i2Coalition is excited to become an enabler for the great work the DNA is accomplishing in this sphere,” comments Melinda Clem, Chairwoman for the i2Coalition. “We’re excited to collaboratively foster a healthy domain environment with universal acceptance of non-traditional domains and provide access to expertise and resources that help address issues facing the domain name industry.”
