Humble Beginnings

Our journey got underway in 2016 when visionary CEOs Warren Patterson and Stanley Kania brought their application hosting companies together as part of an ambitious plan to build a different kind of hosting platform. The merger created Summit Hosting, which quickly set out to expand its share of the application hosting market.
