Infomart Data Centers has appointed Brian Cox as the new chief executive officer of the company. Phil Koen served as interim CEO since June and will remain as a member of the board. Cox will also become a member of the board. He is joined by several other newly appointed executives, who will implement new growth strategies for Infomart, including a brand relaunch, in early 2019, with Cox spearheading the firm’s new direction.

He has more than 20 years of experience in the data center industry. Before joining Infomart, Brian worked at Cologix, as chief financial officer and then as chief operating officer. During his 8-year tenure, he helped Cologix rise from a startup company to an international provider of IT services. Prior to that, Cox also held a CFO position for two years at Tempo Financial Holdings Corp. Cox holds an MBA and a BBA from University of Colorado and Texas Christian University, respectively.

Finding a CEO with a proven track record of growing a company in this space and creating shareholder value was of critical importance to Infomart’s board. The company is in a very strong position and Brian is an accomplished leader with an innate understanding of our business,” said Koen in a prepared statement.

The company is poised for expansion, after a year of intense investor activity. Earlier this year, ASB Real Estate Investments, Infomart’s main investor, closed on the $800 million sale of its flagship data center, Infomart Dallas, to Equinix. In March, IPI Partners acquired the company’s three remaining data centers, totaling 665,000 square feet of raised floor space.
