"I couldn't be happier to be part of the Compass team and working along so many people who are shaping the next phase of our industry's growth," said Brese. "Chris Crosbyis a true visionary in our industry, and I had the pleasure of working alongside him several years ago when he was playing such an instrumental role in creating the wholesale data center model which provided such an elegantly simple solution to the 'build vs buy' debate that had existed in our industry for eons. Now Chris and the Compass team are pioneering a new phase of our industry's evolution with their methodology for providing dedicated data center facilities anywhere—which eliminates the frustrating compromises that have existed with the multi-tenant, major market-centric model that has predominated. This model is all about customers, which is part of why it is so exciting to me."
