Instor Solutions Opens Virginia Office
Expansion to Ashburn, VA with former Digital Realty executive places Instor amid growing market for data center infrastructure solutions along Eastern seaboard.
Instor Solutions (Instor), a global leader in data center infrastructure solutions, announced today the next step in its strategic expansion with the establishment of a new East Coast office and addition of senior personnel.
Originally founded in the heart of Silicon Valley, Instor Solutions has been instrumental in the design and installation of infrastructure solutions for both new and expanding data centers since the 1980’s. The company announced international expansion with the establishment of its Ireland office in August of 2015 and, due to continued growth, has recently opened a location on the East Coast. Located at 43940 Digital Loudoun Plaza, Building G, Suite 144, Ashburn, VA 20147, this new site will serve as the company’s primary presence for the Eastern United States and better enable both New England and Mid-Atlantic customers and partners to forge successful projects with Instor.
Jim Levin is leading this growth as the newly appointed vice president of business development. Having entered the data center and mission critical space in 2007, Levin has nearly 30 years of experience in sales and consulting throughout a variety of industries. Most recently with JAL Consulting where he served as Principal, Levin was previously the director, strategic sales group for Clearwater Systems Corporation.
Gary Wong joins Levin in spearheading Instor’s growing presence on the East Coast. In his new role as Instor’s director of applications engineering, Wong brings over 25 years of experience in both operations and as a solutions provider within the financial and multi-tenant data center sectors. A former director with Digital Realty, he has also held positions in professional services, applications engineering, product management and sales engineering with Eaton, Schneider Electric, and others.
Eric Linden, director of sales, East, is the third hire to drive the establishment of Instor’s East Coast office. Linden has over 15 years of experience in the telecommunications industry within multiple sectors, including: banking, pharmaceutical, and Government. From his relationships with major telecommunication infrastructure manufacturers: Corning, Siemon, CommScope, Ortronics, among others, Linden brings a high-level knowledge about the intersection of data centers and telecom to the team.
“It’s not a secret that the East Coast, and Virginia in particular has become one of the fastest growing areas of data center expansion in the United States,” said Jack Vonich, vice president of sales and marketing at Instor. “There has been a rising need for mission critical expansion throughout the Eastern United States as rapid movement to the cloud and steadily increasing IT activity are taxing existing data center infrastructure. Instor is well-positioned to meet this demand through our new office and seasoned personnel. We look forward to connecting with existing customers and partners in the region and beyond, as well as building new relationships with the surrounding data center communities.”
