Atlanta, GA-based data center services company, GIGA Data Centers, providing a guaranteed PUE of 1.15 and up to 50kW per colocation rack-cabinet, has announced multiple new hires to its sales management team.
The Sales staff enhancements closely follow GIGA Data Centers’ new data center opening announcement and will serve as the catalyst for attracting new clients into their Mooresville, NC data center facility as well as the 14 additional data centers that GIGA plans to build over the next three years in Tier 1 & 2 city locations.
New VP of Sales
David Poller joins GIGA as the company’s new Vice President of Sales. In his new role, Mr. Poller will be responsible for forecasting and revenue growth, providing strategic leadership to develop new business in retail and wholesale markets, creating the company’s channel and reseller programs as well as continuing to build the sales team with approximately 20 new hires. Prior to joining the company, Poller held the position of Vice President of Sales at En Pointe Technologies/PCM for over a decade in the Atlanta, GA area.
“In the data center market, there is ‘same as’ or ‘unique’,” said David Poller. “GIGA is truly unique because they have removed the complexity for contracting data center services and have the ability to save customers 20% to 60% in operations costs, by leveraging one of the lowest PUE ratings in the industry. I’m eager to start contributing to a company that displays such integrity and is poised to redesign the data center industry.”
Wholesale Data Centers
Michael Shaw joins GIGA Data Centers as New Business Development Manager for the wholesale market. In his new role, Mr. Shaw will focus on the consultative selling of colocation services in support of medium and enterprise companies seeking to deploy cloud, network & managed services.
Prior to joining GIGA Data Centers, Shaw held the position of Founding Partner at Principal Real Estate Partners, LLC for over a decade, where he was the leader in Commercial Real Estate & Technology Advisory Services. He has previously demonstrated his experience helping customers secure colocations by delivering analytic market research on targeted states and cities, developing new facilities and services, structuring commercial and economic development deals as well as negotiating economic development incentives with governmental entities.
“Having achieved a Top 3% Miller Heiman Sales Excellence Assessment and over a decade of wholesale consolidation strategies, build-to-suit as well as sale/leaseback in the data center industry, I have seen many facility offers, and GIGA exceeds them all in value and price,” said Michael Shaw. “I am proud to be a part of the GIGA family and within a company that will dramatically change the payment model for hyper-scale computing services.”
GIGA Data Centers offers enclosures that provide a private, secured colocation suite for its clients’ equipment where customers would receive “unlimited rack-power flexibility, high efficiency, and a scalable capacity at a lower cost when compared to traditional raised-floor data centers.” Using the company’s 7th generation WindChill Modular Enclosure to provide hot & cold aisle isolation and their proprietary adiabatic cooling, GIGA can support rack-power densities from 4kW up to 50kW while still able to deliver an industry-leading PUE of 1.15 or better.
