Commenting on his new role, Dominic Thomas, said: “I am delighted to have joined the sales team at Proximity and look forward to maximising the major growth opportunities that exist for our UK regional edge colocation services. Bringing services and data closer to the end-user has never been more important.”

He added: “More organisations are looking for increased reliability, better cost optimisation, more autonomy, lower latency, and the ability to innovate while keeping the lights on.
