Carl Grivner has been appointed to Global Cloud Xchange’s board of directors and will serve on the Audit Committee, focusing on the renewed industry-leading phase of GCX, as the Company successfully emerges from a voluntary pre-packaged Chapter 11 restructuring.

“We are excited to welcome Carl to our board of directors. Carl brings extensive international executive leadership experience, which is vital to our future operations and strategy,” said Jim Ousley, chairman of Global Cloud Xchange. “Carl’s counsel and expertise will bring energy to our board and bolster our commitment to building industry-leading solutions to serve our customers and shareholders better,” Ousley added.

Grivner’s is the fifth appointment to the board.

With more than 25 years’ experience, Grivner will continue to hold the position of CEO of Colt Technology Services. Before Colt Grivner served three years in Singapore as CEO of Pacnet, directing the global strategy of one of Asia’s leading end-to-end communications service providers. Previously, Mr. Grivner held leadership positions for numerous companies, including Cable & Wireless plc, Ameritech, and IBM.

In December, Global Cloud Xchange confirmed that the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware had approved its plans for reorganisation.
