Not only are we at 1623 Farnam expanding our facility, but we are expanding our team as well. Our newest addition, Greg Elliott, will serve as a Vice President of Business Development for 1623 Farnam – an excellent addition to the team. The combination of his sales knowledge and experience working in business development make him a valuable asset to the team during a time of unprecedented expansion for our edge data center.
Greg has an extensive history of work experience in the telecom and tech industries, both in sales and business development and management. For twenty-plus years he has been in the industry, beginning as a District Manager at McClain Tool & Technology Inc. He moved on to work sales at Haas Automation and QSP before moving on to Business Development at 1102 Grand in Kansas City. His extensive background in both sales and business development gives him a very clear understanding of how to craft an effective business strategy that will directly benefit sales.
“We are thrilled to have Greg join our team,” said Todd Cushing, President of 1623 Farnam. “He has had a very successful career in telecom, data centers and interconnection, and we think that he has the right business understanding to help bring us forward strategically. His insights into business development for 1623 Farnam come at a crucial time while we undergo our $40M expansion project.”
“1623 Farnam is an amazing interconnect facility,” says Greg. “Its location in the center of the US at the nexus of the fiber networks spanning North America is an amazing value proposition for any network provider, and with all the significant improvements to the facility, we are already seeing increased activity in leasing and connection partnerships. We are here to help our customers grow their businesses by creating a friendly and rich interconnect ecosystem in the Meet Me Room and are ready to help make those connections.”
The 1623 Farnam team is excited to bring on a new team member during a time of expansion. Our customers are our top priority, and we know that with Greg’s help we will continue to find ways to bring you the reliable, low-latency connections you need.
