Compass Datacenters has named Jared Day as President and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of the company, a role that will include leading Compass Datacenters’ day-to-day data center operations and overseeing development of the company’s financial management and organization. Mr. Day will work alongside CEO Chris Crosby on the company’s senior management team to shape the next phase of its growth.
Jared Day joins Compass Datacenters from Armor Defense – a cloud cyber security company where he was President and previously served as CFO and COO. As President, Mr. Day led the Armor Defense organization through a period of 500% growth over the course of four years, and he closed several rounds of debt and equity capital that provided a foundation for the company’s growth. He was also responsible for financial management of the company, product management, operations, sales, marketing and all administrative functions.
“Compass is growing rapidly, and with that comes the need to expand our senior management team with the right talent to manage that growth,” said Chris Crosby, Founder and CEO of Compass Datacenters. “As my focus shifts to the business development side and furthering the footprint of the company, Jared will take over the day-to-day operations of the company, where he’ll manage financial responsibilities and drive the next phase of growth for Compass.”
“Jared is a highly-respected individual in the industry because of his experience scaling high-growth businesses,” added Mr. Chrosby. “His background in financial management and strong leadership will serve this company well, and I am humbled that someone with his ability and experience has decided to join our team.”
Compass Datacenters was founded in 2011. The company’s investors include Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan and RedBird Capital Partners, who bring a long-term perspective and significant financial resources to support growth. Specialized in delivering build-to-order solutions, Compass’ executive team has built more than $3 billion of data centers and operated over 6 million square feet of raised floor around the world.
