Denver-based Stack Infrastructure has appointed Val Milshtein to the newly-created role of chief technology officer (CTO). 

Milshtein will be responsible for advancing platform technologies, client services, and next-generation sustainable technical solutions for its hyperscale cloud and enterprise clients.

He has joined the company with over 25 years of experience in product development, process design, software engineering, and systems integration in the telecom and data centre industries.

Previous to that, he held a leading product development role at Level 3 Communications (now Lumen).

Brian Cox, Stack Infrastructure’s chief executive officer, said: “Stack continues to look out for the disruptive technologies that will shape digital infrastructure for the next decade and beyond.

“Val has a proven and successful history of keeping his eyes on the technical horizon and moving leading platforms forward in innovative ways. I am proud he is part of Stack.”

Milshtein said: “Stack is assuming a leadership position in the rapid growth of technical infrastructure. We are delivering accelerated scale through forward investment and cutting-edge development tactics. 

“An enhanced technology strategy will deepen the level of service we can provide to our clients and help our Company exceed expectations for performance, availability, and transparency.”
