CoreSite Realty Corp., a national provider of network-rich data centers, announced that Jarrett Appleby will join the company as Chief Operating Officer, effective May 7.
The Company said Appleby joins CoreSite after more than three years at Equinix, where he served as Chief Marketing Officer.

He also led the acquisition and integration of Vanco Group and Yipes, which expanded Globalcom's capabilities in more than 230 countries.
Appleby founded and served as CEO of ILV Group, a boutique consultancy for companies seeking to accelerate growth with partnerships in hosting services, storage, managed services and application and content delivery services, and has held senior positions at MCI (now Verizon Business), AT&T, Qwest Solutions (now CenturyLink) and @Link Networks.
