09 February 2015 |


Russian data centre operator IXcellerate has appointed Roman Linin as CFO.

Linin previously served as investment director for private equity fund Elbrus Capital, as well as CEO for Russian cinema chain Kronverk Cinema. 

“Roman’s impressive background in both finance and management makes him a great fit for his new position. His high level of expertise will play an integral role in IXcellerate’s on-going aggressive consolidation project,” said Guy Willner, CEO at IXcellerate. 

Linin joins the IXcellerate team as it prepares for an increased demand for data centre services in Russia, due to the country’s new information law that will make it compulsory to store data in Russia as of September.
