Dan Conlon is the founder of Donhost which he started in 2000. This was one of the most successful web hosting companies at the time, growing at a rapid pace and was eventually acquired by Pipex Communications in 2005.
At this point he took the position of Managing Director before moving on to work on another start up, humyo.com, at the beginning of 2007. He co-founded humyo, a secure online storage facility, with Peter Dubens.
The 27 year old took advantage of the dot com boom early on, building Donhost into a formidable player in the industry. During his time as MD of Pipex, post acquisition, he built up a company with over 1000 employees.
An entrepreneur at heart he moved onto his latest venture humyo. This venture has led to many award nominations and recognition. In the six months before February 2008, the company grew by 510%.
Humyo is privately funded by Dan and his co-founder.
