Logical Net Founder Passes to Company Baton to Software Executive

Tush Nikollaj, CEO of Logical Net has entrusted the company he founded over 14 years ago to incoming president, Richard Frederick, former President and COO of software company, Autotask Corporation. Mr. Nikollaj will continue as Chairman of the board, but now it is Richard Frederick at the helm of one of the region's oldest Internet service providers.

Previously, he was chief operating officer of Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield, overseeing a $5.5 billion operation for 10 years with responsibility for 1,700 employees. Frederick's first day at Logical Net was Oct. 29, 2007 after he had already attended a staff meeting and met employees.

"This guy is incredibly qualified," Nikollaj said. "We needed someone who is tremendous at executing and building a team and culture." Frederick has done both: building teams at Autotask from 2001 to 2007 and, one of the region's first dot-coms, before that. Previously, he was chief operating officer of Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield, where he oversaw a $5.5 billion operation for 10 years and was responsible for 1,700 employees. "It was time for a new challenge and I found the perfect opportunity with Logical Net," Frederick says.

"Tush is a business- person I know and this opportunity was a great fit for both of us to take the knowledge and experience we have, to leverage it to continue to build the business."

Logical Net, long-known as one of the area's first ISP internet service providers starting with dial-up internet access, has 11,000 dial-up users, down from its peak of 30,000. Now, Logical net looks forward as they expand their enterprise-level datacenter, web hosting, VoIP, broadband internet access, hosted email and collaborative software, email security, virtual data back-up and disaster recovery services, with plans to continue to expand their menu of services for small to medium enterprises SMB's.
