Compass Datacenters founder and CEO and Mission Critical columnist Chris Crosby will be part of the lineup of data center experts that will speak at CRE's Second Annual Greater New York Data Center Summit & Expo on February 27, 2013. Crosby will be a speaker in the Data Center CEO panel at 12:30 p.m., which will also feature: Michael Bucheit, CEO of FiberMedia Group; John Sabey, president of Sabey Data Centers; and Mike Hagen, senior vice president of Schneider Electric (moderator).

"The slate of speakers for this CRE event is outstanding, and the panel sessions are all designed to examine important aspects of the fast-changing data center market in New York and New Jersey. Mike Hagen, John Sabey, Michael Bucheit, and I will share insights about where the business opportunities will be in this market going forward, and our observations may surprise many people. I expect this lively panel to give attendees a fresh perspective that challenges some of the conventional wisdom about this quickly evolving market," said  Crosby.  

The Summit will bring together more than 300 data center real estate and technology infrastructure executives for networking and panel discussions that are part of a full-day program designed to support attendees' business development goals in metro New York, northern New Jersey and the Tri-State area. The event will be held at the New York City Bar Association in Manhattan.
