Data Centre

Equinix, Inc. , the global interconnection and data center company, has this week announced that three executives will move into new roles to address the growing opportunity for Equinix as a strategic platform on which customers architect their digital business. The changes will optimize the company's customer-centric operations as Equinix continues to address increasing customer demand and build on its differentiated market leadership.

Effective early Q2, Karl Strohmeyer, currently President, Americas, will begin serving as Chief Customer and Revenue Officer, overseeing the company's overall go-to-market strategy. Reporting to Strohmeyer will be Sales, Marketing, Customer Care and Experience, Commercial Solutions, and the company's regional management across the Americas, EMEA and Asia-Pacific. Sara Baack, who currently serves as Chief Marketing Officer, will take on the role of Chief Product Officer, leading Product Marketing, Management, Development and Engineering across core colocation and interconnection offerings, as well as overseeing the company's edge services portfolio. Eric Schwartz, currently President, EMEA, will begin serving as Chief Strategy and Development Officer, overseeing Corporate Strategy, Corporate Development, Business Development, Real Estate, Capital Planning and the company's hyperscale initiatives.

The changes will enable Equinix to further drive customer success and accelerate growth as companies embrace digital transformation and leverage Platform Equinix® as their interconnected digital edge, via a global and private infrastructure that is located proximate to the cloud and high-value ecosystems of strategic business partners. As a result, customers can gain greater levels of performance, security, compliance, flexibility and lower total cost of ownership as they continue to leverage Equinix's superior global reach, scaled digital ecosystems, comprehensive interconnection portfolio and long track record of service excellence.
