Denver, CO – May 28, 2015 – ViaWest, a leading hybrid colocation provider in North America, announces the addition of Bill Cory as the Regional Vice President of its Oregon/Pacific Northwest market. Mr. Cory will lead ViaWest’s continued market expansion in the region and focus on enhancing the local customer experience, partner strategy, and cloud and managed services expansion. His immediate focus is to oversee the launch of the Brookwood Data Center in July 2015.
“It is an exciting time to be a part of ViaWest’s Oregon team,” states Nancy Phillips, President and CEO of ViaWest. “Based on customer demand, we are opening our Brookwood data center, which is our third facility in the region. Oregon is a key data center market due to its low power costs and one of the lowest business tax rates in the country. We are excited to bring Bill on board to continue our strong growth trajectory in the region, and the continuation of ViaWest’s position as one of the premier data center service providers in the state.”
The state of Oregon and the city of Hillsboro offer competitive tax incentives and tax abatement programs to encourage businesses to locate and grow in the area, including no state or city sales tax. Between the tax savings and reduced power costs in Oregon, businesses that are eligible for the full complement of savings may potentially reduce their costs by 30% or more compared to colocation options in neighboring states.
“Oregon continues to be a hotbed for data center growth and development,” comments Bill Cory, Regional Vice President of ViaWest’s Oregon/Pacific Northwest market. “I am excited to join the ViaWest team and continue ViaWest’s legacy of providing excellent customer support and robust hybrid solutions. I look forward to building on ViaWest’s position as an IT infrastructure partner to companies, enabling them to focus on accelerating their businesses.”
Mr. Cory has nearly 20 years of experience in the telecom industry, 15 of them in the Portland area, working most recently as Sales Director for Integra Telecom. While at Integra, he led award-winning teams which were frequently among the top producing teams nationally. Mr. Cory has significant experience consulting with businesses on improving operations through technology and telecommunications services with a specific focus in Oregon over the last nine years.
