Rossabi joins from Digital Realty, where he served as managing director for around 18 months. Prior to that, he had a three year stint as EVP at Telx, and spent six years as a senior vice president for global carrier solutions at Tata Communications.

At TierPoint, Rossabi will be tasked with growing revenue, as well as managing the day-to-day operation of the firm’s sales organisation. He will report directly to chairman and CEO Jerry Kent.

"Tony is a transformative leader who understands our customer-first culture," Kent said.  

"With his experience, track record, and knowledge of our industry, we’re confident he’ll build on TierPoint’s considerable accomplishments, to date, and – working closely with John Holland and other members of our leadership team – he’ll help position the company for sustained, long-term success."
