The Switch® has appointed media technology industry veteran Eric Cooney as President and Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately.

As CEO, Cooney will be focused on accelerated growth through product innovation, both organically and with targeted mergers and acquisitions.

"Eric is an experienced CEO with deep industry knowledge and a track record for driving strategy and resource allocation to maximize value creation," said Adam Clammer, The Switch's Chairman and founding partner of True Wind Capital. "I am confident that The Switch is well-positioned for our next stage of accelerated growth and market expansion under Eric’s leadership."

Cooney brings more than 25 years of leadership experience in the technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) sector, most recently serving as an operating executive at True Wind Capital and a board director for The Switch. During his tenure as CEO, his three previous companies, Tandberg Television (OSE: TAT), Internap (NASDAQ: INAP) and Snell Advanced Media, created over $2 billion in incremental enterprise value with a focus on sales execution, product innovation and exceptional customer service.
