EdgeConneX has recruited Don MacNeil as its new chief revenue officer (CRO), the industry veteran revealed on LinkedIn.

MacNeil joins from GTT where he served as its chief operating officer for over two years. He was responsible for leading GTT’s network operations, service delivery, assurance and vendor management as well as its product organisation.

He recently spoke to Capacity at ITW 2022 to discuss his former company’s restructuring after coming out of Chapter 11.

MacNeil previously served as CTO for EdgeConneX from July 2015 to August 2017 and this will now be his second stint with the company.

MacNeil also served as CEO of FiberLight after being promoted from his role as COO.

GTT told Capacity: "Effective December 1, Don McNeil has left GTT to pursue other interests after serving as GTT’s chief operating officer since July 2020.

"During his tenure with GTT, Don accomplished significant achievements, including leading the project to divest the GTT infrastructure division.

"We wish him well in his future endeavors. The company has appointed, George Kuzmanovski as interim COO."

"Previously George was GTT’s SVP, Global Service Delivery Business Operations, responsible for driving transformation and continuous improvements in support of better customer experience. George brings considerable experience, expertise and energy to our drive for operational excellence and our transformation into GTT2.0.

"With regards to GTT’s transformation, the company’s financial restructuring process passed its last regulatory hurdle on December 1 when the California Public Utilities Commission approved GTT’s application.  This puts the company on track to complete its financial restructuring process and emerge as a stronger, more agile company."
