EAST LANSING – Matthew Hill, the founder of Liquid Web, a web hosting company he started in Greater Lansing, died earlier this month.

He died “unexpectedly” on July 13 in West Hollywood, California, according to his obituary. He was 41 and a resident of East Lansing.

Hill was a Lansing native and graduate of Holt High School. He was still in high school when he founded Liquid Web in 1997, according to a July 20 post on the company’s Facebook page acknowledging his death.

Hill sold the company to Chicago-based investment firm Madison Dearborn Partners in 2015, then stepped down as the company’s CEO.

“… for 18 years, before he sold in 2015, with the help of his family and friends, he built the foundation for what we are today,” the company’s post read. “We are grateful for his entrepreneurial vision and technological talent that started the opportunity and success that all of us at Liquid Web enjoy today. We are keeping his family and loved ones in our thoughts.”
