I just read that Chris Crosby has announced his departure at Digital Realty Trust. As an alumni of that great firm I can definitely tell you that Chris’ hand-prints are all over that company. I had the pleasure of interacting with him, before I joined, heavily in my role there, and have maintained our relationship since leaving. Chris was an influential force in defining how that company ran, operated, and ultimately succeeded in dominating the wholesale data center market. Not to mention that he was always a charismatic tour-de-force as one of its primary faces and pitchmen.
I don’t know what Chris is up to next but I wish him the greatest success and happiness. If his near term goal is a little time off, Lord knows he has earned it. I do know that his tornado like energy wont keep him out of the fray for long.
