Equinix Appoints Jeremy Deutsch as New Australia Country Manager

 Equinix, Inc. (NASDAQ:EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, today announced the promotion of Jeremy Deutsch from sales director to country manager for Equinix Australia. With 14 years in the ICT industry across sales, marketing, operations and technical functions, Deutsch is well equipped to lead Equinix Australia as it expands its operations, with its first Melbourne data center location scheduled for completion in Q4 2014. Deutsch’s appointment is effective immediately.

Deutsch’s initial focus will be on the opening of Equinix’s first Melbourne data center (ME1), with phase one slated for Q4 this year. Deutsch will also be working with his team to support the continued growth of Equinix in Sydney, where the company announced the completion of the third phase of SY3 in early April.

Deutsch will continue to educate Australian companies about Equinix's value proposition, demonstrating how they can leverage Equinix’s data center services and expertise to expand globally. Equinix already supports more than 450 companies in Australia to connect business partners and customers across their digital supply chains.

During his time with Equinix, Deutsch has been directly involved in a number of achievements. This includes significant growth of the Australia customer base from 2008-2013, which contributed to significant growth in the company’s revenue. Furthermore, under Deutsch’s stewardship as director of sales for Equinix Australia, the sales team has more than tripled in size to support both local and international demand which resulted in Deutsch being named the top APAC sales director for three consecutive years.

Equinix's global platform, Platform Equinix™ gives its 4,500 customers access to more than 975 network providers, 120+ of which are accessible in Australia including the Southern Cross Cable Network (SCCN) and PIPE Pacific Cable (PPC-1).

Samuel Lee, president, Equinix Asia-Pacific“In Jeremy’s capacity as sales director for Sydney, he has shown strong leadership skills and an in-depth knowledge of our business during his tenure with Equinix. Jeremy’s commitment to his team, to excellence and integrity are values that complement the high standards that we set for ourselves at Equinix. With great momentum in Sydney and with Melbourne opening at the end of this year, we are excited to have Jeremy as our new country manager to lead Equinix’s continued growth in Australia.”

Jeremy Deutsch, country manager, Equinix Australia“It has been a pleasure working with Equinix as it has grown its business in Australia, and with the opening of ME1 just around the corner and SY3 phase 3 recently completed, I am looking forward to leading the team at this exciting time. Equinix offers its customers best in class facilities and networks, in addition to giving cloud service providers the optimal location to build and deliver hybrid cloud solutions. The experience I have developed over my time with Equinix and the great team who I work with will assist us in this next phase. I’m looking forward to the challenge ahead.”
