Reinforces DataBank’s Commitment to Meeting the Managed Services Requirements of its Customers

Dallas, TX – July 28, 2021DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class colocation, connectivity, and managed services, announces the hiring of Rob Lerner as vice president of managed services sales, reporting to Steve Callahan, DataBank’s EVP of Sales.

Lerner is a 22-year industry veteran, with leadership positions in solutions engineering and sales.

“DataBank is a transformative company that exudes a customer-first mentality,” said Lerner, “and I look forward to this versatile role. DataBank’s managed services suite includes our secured, hardened cloud with end to end management. This also includes ownership from the dirt in the ground to the compute stack and connect-to-everything network flexibility. Plus, we’ll customize solutions for specific business needs.

“Managed services are strategic partnerships between us and our customers — partnerships that grow over time, made strong by fully understanding our customers’ core business functions, then designing solutions to protect their reputation and revenue streams. We stand by our product from pre-sales to implementation and migration services. I’m confident in our uncompromising support, specifically formulated for our customers’ success,” continues Lerner.

“Managed services help our customers improve staff efficiency, reduce costs, and accelerate their own strategic initiatives,” adds Steve Callahan. “That commitment to the customer sets us apart from other data center companies. Rob will be a critical new member of that commitment by reinforcing a managed services platform that allows customers to focus on higher-value initiatives with the confidence that their network, hosting, and other IT demands are in good hands.”
