Based in Denver, she will oversee the region’s growth, including market development, sales, construction and operations, reporting to Jeff Tench, executive vice president, North America and APAC. Adams was previously the chief operating officer for AirTrunk, a hyperscale data center provider serving the Asia-Pacific region. Earlier in her career, she held leadership roles at Iron Mountain and Digital Realty.

Howson joins Vantage as president of EMEA to spearhead the company’s growth, overseeing market development, sales, construction and operations across the region.

Additionally, Boniface, who previously served as president of EMEA, has been named the company’s first chief commercial officer for EMEA. In his new role, Boniface will oversee site selection, market intelligence, sales and sales engineering, driving Vantage’s commercial strategy to expand with customers across the region.

“The additions of Dana and David come at a pivotal time for Vantage as we continue to scale our leadership team to keep pace with our customers’ exponential growth driven by cloud and AI services globally,” said Choksi. “I am thrilled to welcome Dana and David given the wealth of experience and leadership they bring to our two largest regions.

“In addition, we are excited for Antoine to become our first chief commercial officer in EMEA. Antoine has been fundamental to our success in the region, and this new role plays to his strengths and passion for serving our customers.
