Together, We’ll Interconnect the World

At Equinix, we are driven by an ambition and passion to create a more connected world.

Our bold vision for interconnection began 20 years ago, when our founders Jay Adelson and Al Avery started Equinix with the big idea of bringing equality and neutrality to network exchanges and the internet.

From our infancy through today, this founding vision has endured. It’s been a guiding light on our journey as we’ve evolved from a single data center company into the world’s largest interconnection platform and data center provider.

When I joined this great company eight years ago, I knew I was going to be part of a phenomenal team at a historically significant company that would have a positive and lasting impact on our world.

During my tenure and through different roles, I can honestly say I have experienced first-hand the true “Magic of Equinix,” enjoying every step of the way alongside my now nearly 8,000 colleagues around the world.

I am a true believer in the core values that underpin the special culture of this company. Uncompromising values that put the customer at the center of everything we do, and define how we operate, think and interact with each other.

It’s the combination of our company values, the talented team we have in place around the world and the tremendous opportunity we have ahead of us that has me so excited and humbled by the opportunity to serve this great company in the role of CEO.

Words cannot express the immense amount of gratitude and appreciation I have for my amazing colleagues around the globe, and I look forward to partnering with them in joyful service to our customers and shareholders.

As we move forward, I want to further extend the Magic of Equinix to our customers, helping them solve their evolving challenges in an ever-changing world. By keeping customers at the center of everything we do, we can leverage our global reach, scaled ecosystems, leading interconnection portfolio and track record of operational excellence to enable our customers to reach everywhere, interconnect everyone and integrate everything needed to succeed in this digital era.

The importance of digital transformation is accelerating in every industry, everywhere around the globe. And, I can assure you we will remain laser-focused on building the global interconnection platform to help the world’s leading businesses solve these challenges.

I’m excited about the road ahead and look forward to sharing my commitment to servant leadership with all of you. The future beckons with opportunities I couldn’t have imagined eight years ago. Equinix is quickly becoming the trusted center of a cloud-first world……let’s enjoy that journey together as we continue to be the place “Where Opportunity Connects!”
