(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – A Small Orange, a shared, reseller, VPS, and dedicated web hosting company with offices in Atlanta and Durham, NC, announced on Monday that it had hired Ryan MacDonald as the company’s new Director of Technology.

“Ryan is one of the most capable system administrators I’ve met and we are really delighted to have him join our team,” said Douglas Hanna, CEO of A Small Orange. “He’s not only very good technically, but has excellent intangibles and is a great culture fit at A Small Orange.”
As Director of Technology, MacDonald will be responsible for all things technical at A Small Orange, including administration of A Small Orange’s server fleet, network management, server-related development, and more.
“I look forward to the opportunity and challenges of working with an organization as dynamic and forward thinking as A Small Orange, said MacDonald. “Together, I am confident we can deliver greater excellence in our services to both current and future customers.”
