January 12, 2021
Strengthening CPG’s sales team, Mettler’s experience as an industry veteran with a global track record of success will support customers across all lines of service
ASHBURN, VA. – Jan. 12, 2021 – CPG – North America’s only complete data center service provider, offering design, construction and analytics-driven operations – today announced the appointment of David Mettler to the position of chief revenue officer. Mettler is tasked with accelerating CPG’s revenue growth across all lines of business, helping to serve the diverse needs of hyperscalers, colocation facilities, enterprises and government agencies across North America.
With over 20 years of experience leading sales teams in the data center and technology services industries – serving a deep mix of customers in financial services, healthcare, and state, local and federal government – Mettler’s appointment further rounds out CPG’s executive leadership team with hands-on global sales experience. Mettler’s chief focus will be to organize the sales team to best support the diverse needs of customers and prospects across CPG’s end-to-end offerings, helping CPG deliver at the scale, pace and reliability required for modern data center service providers.
“As organizations have moved to the cloud to support exponentially-increasing data demands, the process for establishing a modern data center environment hasn’t kept up. From the build and technology install to ongoing maintenance and analytics-driven operations, the process remains far too time consuming and costly, and it involves far too many vendors,” said Tom Mertz, CEO, CPG. “David understands that today’s largest enterprises and technology companies need a true end-to-end technology partner that not only understands their business but that can dynamically scale to match their pace and tackle their long-term challenges.”
Since 2000, Fortune 500s, enterprise cloud providers and colocation customers have entrusted CPG to design, build, commission, service, monitor and maintain their data centers to ensure the availability of their business-critical data and applications. Some of these customers include Microsoft, Equinix, Digital Realty and Cyxtera.
“Over the last two decades, CPG has established itself as unique in its ability to support customers at every stage of the data center lifecycle, with capabilities spanning the full range required by today’s leading companies,” Mettler said. “Leveraging my two decades in the industry, I look forward to working with CPG’s executive and sales team to accelerate the company’s growth trajectory across all lines of business.”
Mettler joins CPG from Iron Mountain Data Centers, where he helped the company grow its global colocation services. Prior to Iron Mountain’s acquisition of IO Data Centers in 2018, David led IO’s U.S. sales team as vice president of sales and market director for the United States. Additionally, David was a key member of the team that managed IO’s data center expansion into the Singapore and London markets, and he previously headed up sales for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) for managed hosting and colocation services provider Savvis.
Mettler began his career as a network engineer for Sprint and holds a Bachelors of Science in Systems Engineering from the University of Virginia.
