Cosentry Inc., an Omaha, Neb.-based information technology solutions provider, is investing $5 million in its Milwaukee data center.
The company is remodeling and updating the former Red Anvil data center at 3701 W. Burnham St. Cosentry acquired Red Anvil last October.
The remodeling of the 7,000-square-foot data center will be completed later this year.
Cosentry also announced the appointment of Chris Gigot as regional sales vice president serving the Wisconsin market. Gigot will oversee Cosentry’s business development and sales efforts, driving the adoption of the company’s managed IT solutions, including data center, cloud and managed services capabilities.
“Wisconsin is instrumental to Cosentry’s growth, and the company is making a significant investment in, resources, capabilities and our new data center facility,” said Derek Gillespie, Cosentry’s chief sales officer. “We are delighted to welcome Chris to the Cosentry team and look forward to his proven ability to form strategic relationships with senior decision makers and strengthen our marketplace position.”
Gigot most recently served as senior sales director at TW Telecom Inc. He previously was a global accounts director at Verizon Business, where he managed sales and service for multiple business customers in the global sales division.
“I am excited to be joining the established IT solutions leader in the Wisconsin market,” Gigot said. “Cosentry’s experienced support teams and award-winning solutions are well known throughout the region. I look forward to contributing to the company’s strong momentum by building strong relationships with our customers.”
