CenturyLink company Savvis, global provider of cloud infrastructure and IT hosting solutions, has appointed Fiona Cullen as managing director for its EMEA operations. Cullen joins Savvis from IBM, where she held a number of senior executive roles.
The appointment rounds out a new EMEA leadership team, following sales, advanced services and marketing executive hires in August. Most recently, Cullen was running the cloud-computing business for IBM across Europe. She has also worked within IBM’s Global Technology Services, Software, Sales & Distribution and Server Technology groups.
“At a time when the market for IT infrastructure is becoming increasingly diverse, Savvis stands apart as a leader in uniquely meeting the cloud, managed hosting and colocation needs of businesses across Europe,” Cullen said. “The opportunity at Savvis is extremely exciting, and I look forward to working to deliver IT hosting services that help organizations across a range of sectors grow and innovate.”
“It’s crucial that we maintain focus on what our clients want and need today and in the years ahead,” said James Parker, senior vice president, global sales and marketing, Savvis. “Fiona is a powerful addition to our global team as we look to accelerate demand for Savvis’ global IT infrastructure solutions in Europe.”
