Equinix elevates Jeremy Deutsch to President, APAC
Equinix has appointed Jeremy Deutsch as President of the company’s Asia–Pacific division, where he will be responsible for regional management, strategy and growth, including Equinix’s operations in Australia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea and Singapore.
Deutsch, a 10-plus-year Equinix veteran, is taking over from Samuel Lee, who has served as Equinix’s President of Asia–Pacific since 2008.
“I am incredibly honoured and thrilled to now serve the company in the role of President of Asia-Pacific,” Deutsch said.
“Asia–Pacific continues to be one of the fastest growing regions for us with both our global and local customers moving quickly to digitise their businesses and expand across our platform, and we continue to grow our business here.”
Deutsch will relocate from Sydney to Hong Kong and report directly to Karl Strohmeyer, Chief Customer and Revenue Officer.
“Jeremy has a successful track record of growing and managing Equinix’s business in Australia over the last decade,” said Strohmeyer.
“His tenured experience working with customers as well as running Equinix’s business in Australia uniquely contributed to our success there, and I look forward to working closely with him on our growth strategy in all of Asia–Pacific.”
Deutsch joined Equinix in 2008 as sales director of Equinix Australia, where he was the company’s top-performing sales leader in APAC for three consecutive years. In 2014, he was promoted to managing director and led the company’s US$804 million acquisition and integration of Metronode, adding 10 data centres.
Prior to joining Equinix, Deutsch was general manager of products at Unwired Australia.
