Guy Danskine appointed MD of Equinix in Australia

Equinix has appointed Guy Danskine, a nine-year veteran of the company, to the position of Managing Director, Australia.

Based in Sydney, Danskine will lead the firm’s local business strategy, succeeding Jeremy Deutsch; the latter was MD from 2014 until July 2019, when he was appointed President of Equinix Asia-Pacific.

Danskine joined Equinix in 2011 as a Global Account Manager in Sydney prior to relocating to San Francisco in 2014 and joining the company’s Global Account Management team.

Most recently he was Senior Director, Strategic Alliances, where he led a team strengthening the company’s partnership with key alliance partners.

“Guy has a proven track record of driving business growth and accelerating Equinix’s market leading position, while efficiently leading his team,” Deutsch said.

“With his experience managing a global, crossfunctional team and growing our strategic partnerships to unlock mutual value, I am confident he will continue to deliver on our commitment in Australia to provide our customers with interconnection solutions that support digital transformation and cloud adoption initiatives.”

“Over the past several years we have seen that Australian organisations are very fast adopters of new technologies, and I look forward to helping deliver added value to our customers deploying across Australia and furthering Equinix’s position as the market leader,” Danskine added.

Equinix has 44 IBX data centres in 13 markets in Asia-Pacific, including 16 across Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Canberra, Adelaide and Brisbane.
