Boosting Involta’s Enterprise Colocation Footprint
The appointment will elevate Involta’s position as a leading enterprise-class colocation, cloud services and connectivity leader and drive further expansion across the company’s accelerated expanding footprint. With an eye toward future growth and innovation, Lindsey brings to the table three decades of industry experience leading private equity-sponsored digital infrastructure companies through rapid expansion and transformation.

On the heels of multiple major announcements, including a 20-MW colocation campus in Green Bay, Wisconsin, a data center expansion in Tucson, Arizona, and the launch of two Internet Exchanges in Boise, Idaho, and Tucson, Involta’s new CEO appointment could not have come at a better time. In his new role, Lindsey will focus on continuing the strategic expansion of Involta’s data center, cloud and connectivity infrastructure services, specifically for large enterprise clients in the technology, manufacturing, healthcare and financial services sectors.
