T5 Facilities Management (T5FM,), a new company launched by T5 Data Centers™, has announced the addition of John Ducic as director, T5 Facilities Management, for T5’s west coast operations. In this position, Ducic will be responsible for managing T5 Data Centers’ western regional facilities, T5@LA and T5@Portland, as well as overseeing T5FM client data centers throughout the western region.
Ducic has more than 15 years of data center management experience and comes to T5FM from CoreSite Realty Corporation, where he served as Senior Facilities Manager. Ducic’s expertise spans all aspects of data center operations, including infrastructure design and deployment, power distribution and management, HVAC and chiller management, emergency protocols, routine system maintenance, and much more. Ducic holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from California State University, Los Angeles.
“John’s diverse background in data center design and operations is just what we need for our T5 Facilities Management team,” said Mike Casey, COO of T5 Facilities Management. “John understands all the inner workings of data center operations, from power to cooling, and his experience will prove valuable for managing both of T5’s western wholesale data centers and T5FM’s new data center clients.”
Ducic’s role on the west coast complements Raymond Caponi’s position as director, T5 Facilities Management for the east coast, and Andy Salcido’s role as Vice President, T5 Facilities Management, who oversees the T5@Dallas data center campus. Caponi is headquartered in Charlotte and Salcido is located in Dallas.
Launched last month, T5FM is the only data center management firm operated by the same organization that owns and operates the T5 Data Centers, the finest top tier, state-of-the-art data centers in the United States. T5FM provides contract on-site support to any data center operator, bringing the same expertise in data center operations that used to manage T5 Data Center’s seven U.S. locations.
