Just over a week after launching a significantly enhanced cloud offering, LightEdge has announced the creation of a Cloud Innovation Center helmed by the company’s first-ever Chief Growth Officer, Rob Carter.
“Alongside this month’s launch of LightEdge Cloud — our most powerful cloud offering to date — we’re also announcing our Cloud Innovation Center to provide an extra layer of support for clients, particularly those with especially complex, hybrid IT environments,” said Jim Masterson, CEO of LightEdge, a leading provider of secure cloud and colocation for nearly three decades. “The Center is a key bridge between clients, our incredible internal experts, and our innovative tech partners, all guided by the leaders we’re so proud of, including Rob Carter.”
The new innovation center will offer high-level, customized support for cloud customers, while the new Chief Growth Officer Rob Carter will work with customers to provide smart solutions perfectly suited to their business needs. New Principal Technologists Stephen Martin and Mike McHenry, as well as several Solution Architects, are also part of this virtual growth engine, which is designed to accelerate clients’ cloud journeys.
Rob comes to LightEdge with a proven track record of meeting customer and business goals within fast paced, high growth service provider environments. A U.S. Air Force veteran, Rob has 25 years of experience in the digital infrastructure industry at companies such as Windstream and TierPoint. Most recently, Rob served as Chief Operating Officer for Connectbase and, previously, for Recovery Point Systems.
“LightEdge stands out among cloud providers for its incredibly strong customer loyalty, thanks to above-and-beyond support and a leadership team that’s unusually in tune with market dynamics and client needs. LightEdge truly is a trusted advisor to our clients,” said Rob Carter. “As the company continues to grow at a fast pace, we want to maintain those differentiators and continue driving our clients’ growth through smart, customized, and meticulously well managed solutions. The Cloud Innovation Center will ensure that positive growth for our clients and LightEdge.”
