Network neutral interconnection and colocation data center company, Cologix, has announced organizational changes that would position the company for continued long-term growth. Brian Cox, who has served as Cologix‘s Chief Financial Officer (CFO) since 2010, has been appointed the new Chief Operating Officer (COO). Cologix also announced the appointment of Stephen Tucker as its new Chief Financial Officer to replace Mr. Cox.
“Brian has distinguished himself over the course of the past 7 years at Cologix, including 10 acquisitions, multiple credit facility upsizes and scaling a startup business into an international data center platform,” said Grant van Rooyen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Cologix. “More importantly, Brian is a leader within Cologix and has deep operational intimacy with the instrumental drivers of our business. I am confident Brian is the right person in the COO role to move the Company forward into our next growth phase.”
Mr. Cox will replace Graham Williams as he steps down to be with his family. “Graham’s departure is bittersweet as he has been part of the Cologix story from the very beginning and his impact has been positively felt throughout our company from day one,” added Grant van Rooyen. “We are sad to see him go, but equally we are all exceedingly proud to have been his partner for 7 years. He has a special opportunity to spend this time with his family and we couldn’t be happier for him.”
Mr. Tucker, who is taking on the role of CFO, is a seasoned executive with extensive experience overseeing finance organizations for high-growth companies, most recently serving as CFO for FTD Companies, Inc and prior to that, various financial leadership positions in the telecommunication and media industries.
Mr. Tucker’s start date with Cologix will be September 18, 2017. “Stephen brings expert skills and leadership to our finance and accounting teams from his extensive experience leading the financial strategy of high growth companies,” added van Rooyen. “We are delighted to have Stephen join our team and we are confident that we are well positioned to meet our growth goals moving forward.”
