North American data centre provider CPG has announced the appointment of David Mettler (pictured) to the position of chief revenue officer.

Mettler is tasked with accelerating CPG’s revenue growth across all lines of business, and helping to serve the needs of hyperscalers, colocation facilities, enterprises and government agencies across North America.

He has more than 20 years of experience leading sales teams in the data centre and technology services industries, and the company said his appointment further rounds out CPG’s executive leadership team with global sales experience.

The company took Mettler on board to organise the sales team to support the needs of its customers and prospects across CPG’s end-to-end offerings.

“As organisations have moved to the cloud to support exponentially-increasing data demands, the process for establishing a modern data centre environment hasn’t kept up,” said Tom Mertz, CEO, CPG.

“From the build and technology install to ongoing maintenance and analytics-driven operations, the process remains far too time-consuming and costly and it involves far too many vendors.

“David understands that today’s largest enterprises and technology companies need a true end-to-end technology partner that not only understands their business but that can dynamically scale to match their pace and tackle their long-term challenges.”

Mettler joins CPG from Iron Mountain Data Centres, where he helped the company grow its global colocation services.

Prior to Iron Mountain's acquisition of IO Data Centres in 2018, Mettler led IO's US sales team as vice president of sales and market director for the United States. He began his career as a network engineer for Sprint.

“Over the last two decades, CPG has established itself as unique in its ability to support customers at every stage of the data centre lifecycle, with capabilities spanning the full range required by today’s leading companies,” Mettler said.

“Leveraging my two decades in the industry, I look forward to working with CPG’s executive and sales team to accelerate the company’s growth trajectory across all lines of business.”

Since 2000, Fortune 500s, enterprise cloud providers and colocation customers have assigned CPG to design, build, commission, service, monitor and maintain their data centres. The company revealed that some of these customers include Microsoft, Equinix, Digital Realty and Cyxtera.
