The continued execution and accomplishments of this organization are a tribute to the team and culture recruited and cultivated by Tom Ray during his 15 years at the helm of CoreSite and its predecessors. Our continued success will be driven by the strength of this team and the power of our strategy.
CoreSite will continue to focus on being a differentiated hybrid provider of performance sensitive turnkey co-location in major markets with strong and diverse growth drivers and sustainable demand. We have the efficiency to accommodate high volumes of smaller deployments and the scalability for larger deployments that are performance or market sensitive.
