STACK INFRASTRUCTURE (“STACK” or the “Company”), the data center company built from the ground up to address the technology infrastructure needs of rapidly scaling enterprises and hyperscale businesses, recently announced the appointment of Matt VanderZanden as Chief Strategy Officer. The former Facebook executive will lead development and location strategy for STACK with a focus on product development, site selection, and strategic partnerships.
Mr. VanderZanden joins STACK’s team of proven data center and technology industry experts, bringing with him deep roots and insights as a former hyperscale data center executive. He spent most of the last decade expanding Facebook’s worldwide data center footprint, leveraging his experience as a real estate attorney at Paul Hastings, the position he held just prior to joining Facebook, to foster his dynamic approach to geolocal data center development.
As Director of Data Center Site Selection, Mr. VanderZanden built Facebook’s global data center location strategy program plying his legal and data center expertise to navigate the intricacies and interrelationships of data center and critical infrastructure development, government relations, incentives, and location strategy.
“Matt’s joining is a real-time insight into our strategy for STACK. We are singularly focused on meeting the needs of our clients,” said Brian Cox, Chief Executive Officer of STACK. “Matt represents the very best of the hyperscale community and the rigorous capacity, technical, uptime, and value expectations that community demands. As the voice of the customer and the head of our strategy, he will provide a unique perspective as we develop the national footprint, scale, and flexibility our platform can deliver.”
STACK provides the scale and geographic reach that rapidly growing enterprises and hyperscale companies need. A data center industry in flexible critical infrastructure solutions, the company also addresses the complex requirements of enterprise and hyperscale deployments, offering hyperscale campuses and build-to-suit data centers (“HYPER STACKTM”), immediately available wholesale colocation and private data suites (“READY STACKTM”), and powered shell options (“POWER STACKTM”).
“I am thrilled to join the STACK team,” adds Matt VanderZanden, Chief Strategy Officer of STACK. “This team has worked smart and hard to build STACK from the ground up, leveraging strong data center assets along with extensive and scalable expansion capabilities. I am confident that we will deliver superior products that will provide custom, scalable solutions for our enterprise and hyperscale clients.”
