Digital Realty has hired Colin McLean as its chief revenue officer, replacing Corey Dyer who will depart at the end of the month.

McLean will report to Andy Power, president and CEO of the company and is tasked with leading Digital Realty’s global sales and marketing organisation.

“Working closely with Corey, Colin has been a key driver of Digital Realty's success, demonstrating a track record of execution and consistently taking on incremental levels of responsibility.”

"Colin's broad sales and marketing experience combined with a background that traverses the data centre solutions and wider technology landscapes, position him well to enhance and accelerate the value we create for our customers and Digital Realty stakeholders."
