Integrated Design Group (ID) has announced it has hired Charlie Scott as its new vice president of business development. Joining ID’s Dallas office, Scott will drive the firm’s data center design business development activities within the corporate, government, institutional, and high-technology markets nationally and abroad.

Scott brings nearly a decade of sales management experience in the telecommunications and information technology industries to his new role. His background enables an understanding of the evolving needs of data center clients as the industry moves toward new trends in load-on-demand delivery systems and other innovative design techniques. Prior to joining ID, Scott was with Volt Telecom Group for five years.

“Charlie joins Integrated Design Group at an exciting crossroads in our firm’s growth,” said Brad Gray, LEED® AP, principal and regional manager of ID’s Dallas office. “Our technical staff is active on data center projects throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the Middle East. We have just marked the occasion of our firm’s 10 year anniversary, and are gearing up to unveil a new modular data center design for a major financial client in the U.S. Charlie possesses a genuine understanding of the unique needs of data center clients and ID’s capabilities, and will undoubtedly help connect our firm with some of our next great opportunities.”

Scott is a graduate of Iowa State University, with a Bachelor of Science degree in business management. He is active in many industry organizations including 7x24 National and Lonestar Chapters, AFCOM and The Green Grid.

One of Scott’s first initiatives will be to build awareness of the firm’s annual data center symposium, which takes place this year in Dallas on May 29. Now in its fourth year, the 21st Century Data Center Symposium (21CDCS) was created by Integrated Design Group to provide data center decision-makers with an essential forum that provides unbiased, expert advice. Data center experts from Bloom Technology, Fidelity Investments, IBM, Integrated Design Group, and other firms will contribute to this year’s theme, “The Changing Landscape of Data Center Design.” To learn more about ID’s thought leadership in the data center industry, and the 21st Century Data Center Symposium, visit
