Pulsant, a leading UK provider of regional data centre services, colocation, workplace recovery and managed cloud, has named Ravi Valecha as its new Director of Colocation Sales. In his role, Valecha will drive colocation sales and support the company’s focus on enabling customer transformation and growth.
A colocation specialist, Valecha has more than 15 years’ experience in the market and has delivered projects across financial services, edge, hyperscale and enterprise sectors. He will be responsible for rejuvenating and refocusing Pulsant’s data centre proposition across the UK with a view to facilitating innovation and future growth.
“It’s a really exciting time to join Pulsant, particularly with the explosion of data, along with the rise in IoT and 5G. Pulsant’s UK wide network of 10 regional data centres is uniquely positioned to exploit the opportunity outside of traditional markets such as Docklands and Slough and I am looking forward to working with the professional and expert team at Pulsant to continue to grow and develop our data centre services,” says Ravi Valecha.
Valecha joins Pulsant from Zenium, a hyper-scale data centre operator where he was involved in selling multi-megawatt opportunities. Prior to this, Valecha spent seven years at Telecity Group focused on selling colocation services to a number of tech giants. While there he worked closely with Pulsant’s CEO, Rob Coupland.
“Ravi’s appointment supports our growth plans and will ensure we deliver the best solutions to our colocation and managed hosting customers. As a colocation specialist he has excellent experience in the industry and will prove a valuable addition to our growing team. We already have an excellent relationship and I am looking forward to working closely with him again,” says Pulsant CEO Rob Coupland.
