Connectivity provider Liquidity Connect has named Raymond Holbrook as its new chief information officer. He joins from OneZero Financial Systems where he was global director of IT.
During his near six-year tenure at OneZero, Holbrook designed, planned, and implemented new Equinix Data Centre locations in London-LD4, Hong Kong-HK1 and Tokyo- TY3 and managed the day to day operations and health of the firm’s five global data centres, along with dozens of client, vendor, and partner relationships.
“We are very pleased to add Ray’s tremendous breadth of skills and experience to our team,” says Victor Hendrix, CEO of Liquidity Connect. “Additionally, he brings with him an invaluable knowledge and understanding of the needs and requirements that our customers demand and deserve. His reputation and achievements with OneZero Financial Systems made his selection a very easy decision.”
The firm says Holbrook’s first order of business will be to lead Liquidity Connect’s global expansion into Asia, following the company identifying Equinix Tokyo- TY3 as its next data centre location. Slated for 2020-Q3, TY3 will provide Liquidity Connect customers with immediately-available VPS, dedicated bare-metal servers, and ultra-low latency fibre cross connects to several liquidity and technology providers in the Asia Pacific Region. Dedicated fibre connectivity, backhauled to CH1/LD4/NY4 data centres will also be part of its new TY3 network.
Liquidity Connect’s investment in Japan marks its second major global growth milestone in less than one year. The Company announced its new network in London-LD4 in November 2019, following a substantial Cage acquisition in NY4 earlier that year.
