09 April 2013 | Mitch Sayers


Zayo Group has appointed Alastair Kane as vice president for Europe as it continues plans to grow its European footprint.

Kane, who has previously worked for BT, 2e2 and Level 3, will be based at the bandwidth infrastructure provider’s European headquarters in London and will be responsible for leading commercial activity for Zayo’s European market.

Zayo expanded into the European market through the acquisition of AboveNet in July 2012, in the process gaining a deep metro network in London and a European network connecting the major data centres in Amsterdam, Paris and Frankfurt.

“We are seeing the ever increasing demand for bandwidth offer market opportunities that play to our strengths. I look forward to being part of the Zayo team as we grow our business,” said Kane.
