Newby to support DataVerge’s growing ecosystem of carrier and network providers in the Brooklyn region
New York, NY – December 15, 2022 – DataVerge, owner and operator of the only carrier-neutral interconnection facility in Brooklyn and a trusted partner to carriers, network operators and enterprise IT in the NYC region, today announced the appointment of interconnection pioneer Hunter Newby to its Board of Directors. As one of the preeminent network infrastructure experts, operators and investors, Newby brings extensive experience and proven track record of innovations, developing carrier-neutral Meet-Me Rooms, carrier hotels and data centers in the United States. Perhaps best known for leading Telx through tremendous growth and managing its acquisition by GI partners as Telx’ Chief Strategy Officer, with Telx ultimately being acquired by Digital Realty for $1.886 billion, Newby will work closely with the DataVerge management team to continue the company’s expansion of its growing connectivity ecosystem.
“I am excited to join the DataVerge team in charting what’s next in connectivity for the Brooklyn region, which has remained one of the most underserved network infrastructure markets. DataVerge offers the most unique combination of value for carriers and network providers – direct access to dark fiber, state-of-the-art Meet-Me Room and connections to hundreds of enterprise customers across Industry City,”.- Hunter Newby
