Expanding a data center can be a stressful undertaking, especially when it comes to complicated merger and acquisition activities. It pays to have access to a team of experts to oversee the project every step of the way.
One company offering this service is Competitive Telecoms Group (CTG), which is one of the leading consulting and recruiting companies in the telecommunications and data center space. CTG now has nearly 100 global carrier and data center clients, and recently expanded its consulting group with the appointment of industry veteran Larry Fisher to the role of Vice President, Consulting Services.
Mr. Fisher is well-known throughout the telecommunications ecosystem for his role in managing new product development at Sprint. He later led MCI’s (now Verizon) partnership with IBM. This drove over $500 million in annual outsourcing contracts for MCI. Later, he brought this experience to NTT America, the second-largest telecommunications group in the world, where he became Senior Vice President of Sales and Services.
Previously, at Dun & Bradstreet, Mr. Fisher first led the new product development team for the Marketing Services division. He later served as Vice President of Strategic Alliances, where he was instrumental in developing the company’s partner distribution strategy. The Dun & Bradstreet partner distribution strategy that Fisher put in place secured relationships with Oracle, SalesForce.com, IBM, Microsoft and others. Most recently, he led development of financial markets at both CoreSite and QTS.
“Larry will become our Vice President, Consulting Services with a key focus on our growing Data Center sales, support and transaction activities,” stated Jerry DeMartino, CEO of Competitive Telecoms Group and former President of MCI International and CEO of GlobeNet. “While best known for our recruiting capabilities, CTG continues to expand our Consulting, Board Placement and M&A practice with major industry players such as The Carlyle Group, Verizon, Neustar, Cerberus Capital, Aon, Telarix, Allstream and many others.”
This is only the latest news from CTG, which is developing a team of experienced and talented executives with diverse expertise to handle almost any assignment, anywhere. By incorporating consulting and recruiting, CTG has the ability to reach into its extensive database of global executives to manage projects that require the skills needed for every segment of the industry.
CTG is very excited about its partners and its new direction, and will be on hand to discuss its capabilities at the Channel Partner Show in Las Vegas, April 10-13, and at International Telecoms Week (ITW), May 14 -17, in Chicago.
