Shortly following 1623 Farnam’s recent news regarding the appointment of Bill Severn as CEO and President, the company is eager to share yet another strategic leadership announcement: Eric Flock has been promoted to Vice President of Infrastructure and Facility.

Originally serving as 1623 Farnam’s Operations Manager, Flock joined the team back in 2015. Since then he has not only brought extensive knowledge and expertise of the wider telecommunications and data center industry to the team, but also cultivated a deep understanding of 1623’s own operations and growth trajectory. These assets and experiences position him well for success in his new role.

Leveraging more than 15 years of experience in critical infrastructure, Flock is an expert in networking equipment installation, fiber optic services, UPS and generator backup systems and more. Furthermore, Flock is well-versed in collaborating closely with customers to meet even their most exacting needs. Now, as VP of Infrastructure and Facility, Flock is set to propel 1623 Farnam’s edge data center and connectivity ecosystem forward, driving even more value, rich experiences and collaboration within the company’s colocation facility and on-site IX.

“It’s been a wonderful experience working alongside the 1623 team across all these years, seeing our data center, our solutions and our customers’ success grow and evolve as intricate demands and technical requirements change,” states Flock. “I’m eager to step into this new role and become a driving force for the future of this connectivity ecosystem we’ve built, equipping our customers and partners with the right infrastructure solutions to thrive in the competitive marketplace.”
