A Few Musical Chairs: Zayo, CS&L, QTS, ViaWest

June 1st, 2015 by · Leave a Comment

Not much early action this Monday morning, but a bunch of folk from the sector have some interesting new titles this week.

Zayo has decided that it needs a few good COOs. They've elevated Matthew Erikson and Chris Morley to the Chief Operating Officer level from the mere presidency for their respective groups. That's the Physical Infrastructure and the Cloud & Connectivity divisions of the company, of course. Zayo's internal structure has evolved steadily over the years and through the acquisitions, and will probably continue to do so given the ongoing shifts in the infrastructure itself.  Erikson and Morley have been two of CEO Dan Caruso's chief lieutenants for many years now.

Fresh off its spinoff from Windstream, CS&L has brought on a few new board members. Schaad Companies CEO Jennifer Banner and former NuVox CEO David Solomon have signed on, with the former heading the Audit committee and the latter heading th eCompensation committee. That brings the total to a whole four BoD members -- I can only assume more are on the way. That and an acquisition of some assets to diversify the company from just Windstream network assets.

QTS Realty Trust now has a CPO. That would be Chief People Officer, in charge of human resources and related functions. Stan Sword will be taking on that role for the Kansas-based data center and cloud services REIT.

And also in the data center world, ViaWest has named Bill Cory as its Regional Vice President for Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. Since its acquisition by Shaw, ViaWest has been keeping up its regional momentum. Cory's first task will be to oversee the launch of the company's third Oregon data center of 138,000 square feet of raised floor space in Brookwood.
