Dallas, TX – May 18, 2017 – DataBank, Ltd., a Digital Bridge portfolio company and leading provider of business solutions for data center, cloud, interconnectivity, and managed services announced today that Raul Martynek has been named Chief Executive Officer, replacing Tim Moore, who will be retiring from the Company at the end of the month. Mr. Martynek, a seasoned C-Suite telecommunications and data center executive, most recently was a senior member of the Digital Bridge Data Center team.

The Company also announced that Kevin Ooley, the Company CFO, has been promoted to President and CFO.

“I really felt this was the right time for me to make this transition, and when I approached the board with my decision, I was asked to create the plan for succession,” said Tim Moore. “I could not be happier about leaving the Company in such good hands. I am very proud of what we have accomplished and I couldn’t be more excited to watch the business continue to grow under the leadership of Raul and Kevin.”

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to join such a great team,” said incoming CEO, Raul Martynek. “DataBank has built a tremendous platform with a strong presence in all their markets and deep customer relationships. I’m excited to leverage my past experiences to continue to grow the Company and expand our services portfolio in response to our customers’ needs. DataBank will continue to undertake new developments, pursue tuck-in acquisitions as well as evaluate strategic transformational transactions consistent with our strategy.” Martynek continued, “I am especially pleased that Kevin will be taking on additional executive responsibilities as President and I expect him to have a tremendous impact on the business.”

“Raul has a proven track record of success in our industry and that gives me great confidence that the company will continue to flourish,” commented Mike Foust, Chairman of DataBank and the former Founder and CEO of Digital Realty Trust. “I look forward to working with Raul, Kevin and the rest of the executive team in building the leading datacenter and managed services provider in our sector.”

Mr. Martynek joins DataBank from Digital Bridge where he served as a Principal and Senior Advisor since December 2015. Mr. Martynek has a broad background managing and growing telecommunications and internet infrastructure companies over the last 20 years.
