Green House Data has announced Mark Fuqua’s appointment to senior vice president of sales.

Fuqua comes to Green House Data with deep experience in IT business development, having previously served as director of business development at Layered Technologies and director of compliant solutions and vice president of enterprise sales at Datapipe. With demonstrated success working with complex compute environments, regulatory compliance standards, and cloud services, he is well-positioned for Green House Data’s high-touch, service-oriented brand of infrastructure solutions.

“Mark brings a wealth of knowledge and leadership in enterprise sales, cloud platform development, and managed services to Green House Data,” said Shawn Mills, CEO, Green House Data. “In addition, his background in compliance dovetails perfectly with our portfolio of secure IaaS offerings.”

“My decision to come to Green House Data was based on the company’s unique position in the market, with the ability to manage the entire compute stack including implementation and management of services,” said Fuqua. “Green House Data has an extremely strong management team that will continue to add products and drive the company toward growth. These reasons, combined with Green House Data’s unusually high customer satisfaction and retention rate, made this a company that I wanted to be a part of.”

This executive hire comes on the heels of a year of rapid growth for Green House Data, which expanded to Atlanta and Dallas after acquiring Cirracore in April of 2017, and launched into Denver after acquiring Ajubeo in November of 2017. In December, the company announced the acquisition of Assuritive for intellectual property around disaster recovery as a service.
