My experience includes advising private equity funds, institutional investors, large pension funds, major Fortune 500 companies, cloud companies and Global IT conglomerates on investments on all of the various types of data centers, including mission critical, disaster recovery data centers, colocation facilities, carrier hotels and internet gateways and life science properties all throughout the North American, APAC and EMEA regions comprising more than 55.0 million square feet of rentable space and 25.0 million square feet of technical/raised floor space. The assignments that I have been involved include data centers owned and/or operated by Fortune 500 corporations across numerous industries, as well as Uptime Institute Site Certified Tier III and Tier IV facilities, U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED Platinum, Gold and Silver, and state and federal disaster recovery data centers. I have also been involved in large portfolio valuations spanning across multiple states, and consulted on a number of the World’s Largest Data Centers featured in DataCenterKnowledge.
I am very involved in the data center industry as a member of the 7x24 Exchange and AFCOM. I am also a regularly invited speaker/moderator/sponsor at many of the major data center conferences in Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Toronto, London, France and nearly all of the major cities in the U.S. and Canada. I also achieved the ATS designation (“Accredited Tier Specialist” designation) with the Uptime Institute.
