Founded in 2004 by Leo Lammerink , a Dutch national with long-term global Sr. Exec mgt. presence and experience. Known also now for his superb support as "leolam" on the Joomla Forums, the rapid growing company has become a household name in the Joomla community. Initially founded as JooMaGroup (a playful abbreviation of Joomla/Mambo), the ever increasing global orientation and the market driven decision to cease support services to the Mambo platform resulted in a decision in 2009 for a full re-branding of the corporate identity and after careful consultations with external professional Marketing and PR-advisers the all new branded "GWS Global Web Services" was born. New exciting products have been launched since than such as a complete new concept OSAM, which represents a full Operational System Application Management portfolio, providing full serviced and Managed Hosting combined with Joomla! Outsourced (Webmaster) Management.
