Cosentry, a U.S. Midwest provider of data center services, has appointed industry veteran Chris Scaglione to Regional Vice President. Based out of Cosentry’s data center at 1111 Olive St. in downtown St. Louis, MO, Scaglione will lead business development efforts for the technology company.
“We’re pleased to add Chris’ deep experience and expertise in IT and data center services to the Cosentry team,” said Brad Hokamp, Cosentry CEO. “Chris understands the specific technology needs of the business and industry clusters in St. Louis. His leadership will be key to our ongoing success as we continue to invest in the St. Louis market.”
Tapping a 23-year career in IT strategy and management, Scaglione is set to work hand-in-hand with Ken Lindsay, Cosentry’s Vice President of Operations and Engineering, who recently relocated to St. Louis to lead the company’s managed services division. The two leaders plan to expand Cosentry’s data center services including cloud hosting, and managed services offerings in the St. Louis region.
