TierPoint LLC has announced that Tony Rossabi will join the company in early May as executive vice president and chief revenue officer, reporting to chairman and CEO Jerry Kent.

Rossabi brings nearly 20 years of experience in driving growth and innovation for technology and telecommunications enterprises. Most recently, he served as managing director for Digital Realty Trust’s colocation and connectivity business unit. Prior to that, he was executive vice president of sales, marketing, and strategy for Telx Group, Inc.

In his newly created role with TierPoint, Rossabi will oversee revenue growth, manage the daily operations of TierPoint’s national sales organization, and contribute to strategic planning. TierPoint senior vice president of sales John Holland will report to Rossabi.

“Tony is a transformative leader who understands our customer-first culture,” Kent said. “With his experience, track record, and knowledge of our industry, we’re confident he’ll build on TierPoint’s considerable accomplishments, to date, and – working closely with John Holland and other members of our leadership team – he’ll help position the company for sustained, long-term success.”

Prior to Digital Realty and Telx, Rossabi held leadership roles at TATA Communications, WilTel (now part of Level3 Communications) and BellSouth (now part of AT&T).

“I’m thrilled about the opportunity to work with TierPoint’s remarkable team,” said Rossabi. “They have an exceptional mix of clients and 900 professionals, who are laser-focused on the customer experience, delivering world-class hybrid IT solutions.”
