European data center colocation and interconnection provider, AtlasEdge, is expanding its Management Team by hiring David Hall as Senior Vice President (SVP) Colocation. David Hall joins AtlasEdge from Equinix, where he most recently held the position of Fellow in the Office of the CTO, with a focus on physical infrastructure and Edge. Mr. Hall has over fifteen years of expertise in the carrier neutral data center industry.
Prior to this, David Hall worked at TelecityGroup for eleven years in a range of top capacities, including senior product, commercial, and strategic responsibilities.
As Senior Vice President Colocation, Mr. Hall will be in charge of developing and overseeing AtlasEdge’s core colocation offerings, including the platform’s distinctive building block method for designing and constructing data centers.
“AtlasEdge has a unique combination of people, product, locations and a genuinely ‘customer-first’ approach,” said David Hall, the newly appointed SVP Colocation. “Together, these ingredients offer us a fantastic opportunity to build a modern infrastructure business, unencumbered by legacy, which will be Europe’s leading Edge platform. I couldn’t be more excited to join the team in support of this mission.”
AtlasEdge’s Core Colocation Strategy
AtlasEdge was created through a joint investment by Liberty Global, a global provider of converged video, broadband, and communications services, and DigitalBridge, a global investment firm specializing in digital infrastructure. It already has an expanding portfolio of more than 100 data center sites across Europe, giving it access to a core network backbone.
“I am delighted to welcome David into the AtlasEdge family to help drive our core colocation strategy,” said Giuliano Di Vitantonio, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at AtlasEdge. “His extensive industry experience and impressive track record is a fantastic addition to our talented team. With the ever-growing Edge demand we are seeing from customers, David’s arrival is perfectly timed.”
