October 11th, 2007 By: Rich Miller
Telx, which operates Meet Me Room and interconnection facilities, has appointed industry veteran Tesh Durvasula as Chief Marketing and Business Officer. Durvasula will lead corporate development and all marketing efforts for Telx, which said the appointment rounds out the executive management team in the “new” Telx , which has grown from 2 to 13 facilities in the past nine months. Among the facilities acquired by Telx was NYC Connect at 111 Eighth Avenue, where Durvasula was co-founder and Chief Operating Officer.
“As we position ourselves for continued growth into 2008, Tesh has proven to be an invaluable team member and manager who has lead the integration of NYC Connect into our Telx family efficiently and effectively,” said Eric Shepcaro, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Telx. “I am delighted to appoint Tesh as our new Chief Marketing and Business Officer and am confident that our brand, market position and product development will continue to meet the growing demands of our customers.”
Durvasula is an industry veteran with over 17 years of technology and management experience. Prior to founding NYC Connect in 2003, he served as Vice President of Sales and Business Development for Metromedia Fiber Network, where he played a major role in the acquisitions of AboveNet in September 1999 and Sitesmith in February 2001.
In November Telx was bought by private equity firm GI Partners, and in March it acquired the meet-me-room at 111 Eighth Avenue in New York. With its deal to manage meet-me-rooms in Digital Realty Trust buildings, Telx now has operations in Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Phoenix, San Francisco, Santa Clara, and Weehawken.
