CyrusOne has appointed John McCloskey as its new vice president of hyperscale and cloud sales.

Based in Seattle, McCloskey brings 30 years of technology sales experience to the role where he will oversee enterprise cloud customers and help lead the development of the next set of hyperscale accounts.

“Seattle continues to be a high growth market for CyrusOne, and we are thrilled to bring John onboard to help lead our growing portfolio of hyperscale cloud customers,” said John Gould, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, CyrusOne. “In his 30 years of experience he has built best-in-class sales teams for some of the world’s most impressive and largest technology organisations. John’s presence in the Seattle market will help spearhead our expansion in the region. His leadership will also be deployed across our enterprise cloud customers across the globe.”

Before joining CyrusOne, McCloskey served as senior vice president of global sales at Akamai Technologies. During his tenure, he led the company’s go-to-market within Akamai’s £1.5 billion web performance and security division. Prior this, he spent 6 years at Microsoft in a number of leadership roles, including global head of cloud and enterprise sales. He has also worked for the likes of Amazon Web Services, Oracle and IBM.

At present, CyrusOne operates more than 45 data centre facilities across the US, Europe, Asia and Latin America.

In December, CyrusOne acquired a new 15.5-acre site in the Netherlands with plans to develop a brand new 360,000 square foot data centre campus. The facility will offer an estimated 72 MW of power capacity once completed.
