As we close out summer and look forward to fall, we take a look back at our September news. Heading into the second half of the year, QTS team members have been busier than ever! In September we assembled an expert panel at a very successful event at QTS Chicago and announced two new additions to our senior team.
We were proud to sponsor Bisnow’s 5th Annual Data Center Boom at our Chicago data center on September 13th. Our expert panel addressed the most pertinent issues in cybersecurity today. With more than 150 guests in attendance, leaders from all industries discussed the current and future landscape of the growing data center market, what’s new in data center design and new technologies. QTS Chicago Site Director Nabon Marsico was among the panelists that discussed Chicago’s growth capability and custom data center solutions.
In further news, we are excited to announce Andrew Wild as the newest addition to QTS, serving as our new Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). Andrew, with more than 25 years of information security and risk management experience, will lead our security and compliance teams to defend against the latest threats in cybersecurity. Prior to joining the QTS team, Andrew was the CISCO at Lancope and CSO at Qualys, a leading provider of cloud security and compliance solutions.
Another exciting addition to the QTS family was Steve Bloom as Chief People Officer (CPO). Our Powered by People approach sets QTS apart from other data center providers and the arrival of Steve reinforces that commitment. With more than 25 years of hands-on leadership experience in a variety of industries including technology, healthcare, consumer products and financial services, Steve spent the majority of his career with world-class companies like PepsiCo, Citibank and Medco. We are excited to see how Steve can further expand the impact of our Powered by People mission.
We are looking forward to launching several new products this fall and further expanding our fully-integrated, fully-managed portfolio of services.
