National IT infrastructure provider hires two new vice presidents to further elevate product development and channel partner programs
CHARLOTTE, NC (February 28, 2017) – Peak 10, a national hybrid IT infrastructure, connectivity and cloud services provider, today announced that it has completed a 20,000 square foot expansion of its Cincinnati-area data center, a 6,000 square foot expansion of its data center campus in Charlotte’s University Research Park, and added a pair of seasoned executives to its leadership team. This further propels the company on its aggressive growth trajectory to meet the rising demand for flexible hybrid IT strategies and solutions across its enterprise customer base.
Cincinnati is home to companies like Kroger, Proctor & Gamble, and GE. The expansion of Peak 10’s facility, located in West Chester, OH, was driven by the increasing demand for its IT infrastructure solutions. Since first entering the Cincinnati market in 2008, Peak 10 has seen steady customer growth, primarily in the industries of healthcare, manufacturing and technology. The company serves hundreds of area customers, including Gorilla Glue, CareStar and Aero Fulfillment Services.
“At Peak 10, we understand the influx of Big Data, the IoT, increased connectivity and other outsourcing that puts pressure on the need for expanded IT services,” said PJ Kiggins, vice president of sales for Peak 10, based in Cincinnati. “The expanded capacity and capabilities we are providing will allow us to continue as a trusted partner in helping Cincinnati area businesses tackle their IT infrastructure challenges.”
The company’s data center expansion in Charlotte was also driven by increasing customer demand for Peak 10’s IT infrastructure solutions. Peak 10 opened its 64,000 square foot campus in the city’s University Research Park in late 2012, which has attracted Charlotte businesses such as Premier, Inc., a leading national healthcare solutions organization.
Peak 10 also announced that it has hired two new executives as the company continues to build out its leadership team to facilitate growth and support new customer demand:
- Dave Sroka has joined Peak 10 as vice president of channel sales. Bringing more than 20 years of business management and leadership experience to the role, Sroka is in charge of leading the next high-growth phase of the company’s Partner Program, where he will focus on enhancing Peak 10’s commitment to and alignment with the channel community. Before joining Peak 10, Mr. Sroka held leadership positions at Coresite, Cologix and Level 3.
- Steve Renda has joined Peak 10 as vice president of product. Renda is responsible for developing and executing a cohesive strategy focused on enhancing the company’s existing product offerings and building product awareness across Peak 10’s target markets. Prior to joining Peak 10, Mr. Renda held positions with NTT/Verio, Sprint, Macmillan Science and Education, and MX Logic.
“Huge demand for faster, more secure and highly reliable hybrid IT solutions is creating a need for more square footage within our cutting-edge data center facilities around the country,” said Chris Downie, CEO at Peak 10. “We are dedicated to the mission of providing customers with access to the best technology and connectivity solutions and services available. Our customers recognize that our people are our true differentiators, and Dave Sroka and Steve Renda will be invaluable to our vision as we take Peak 10 to the next level.”
Over the past year, Peak 10 has experienced impressive growth. Since January 2016, the company has expanded its operational capacity by more than 150,000 square feet at six different locations. The company most recently acquired a 33,000 square foot data center in Louisville, Ky.
Headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., Peak 10 operates 16 data centers in key U.S. markets and serves a diverse range of customers in the U.S. and abroad.
