EdgeConneX Salutes Veterans: Solving the Mission Critical Talent Crisis

November 11, 2022

As part of its joint initiative with long-standing partner Salute Mission Critical, EdgeConneX launched EdgeConneX Salutes, a program to honor the many amazing Veterans and Veteran spouses/partners that work across EdgeConneX data centers globally. 

EdgeConneX Salutes celebrates this impressive group of women and men who work in EdgeConneX data centers with the same integrity, dedication, discipline, precision, and high-quality approach as they did while serving their respective countries. 

Check out our newest video saluting veterans, featuring Phillip Marangella, Chief Marketing and Product Officer for EdgeConneX, and Lee Kirby, Co-Founder, and Chairman of Salute Mission Critical, as the two discuss the fantastic work this group is doing for EdgeConneX 24/7 around the world, every day.  

As Phillip notes, Veterans’ critical skills translate perfectly into the data center space, and the Salute Mission Critical model has allowed EdgeConneX to scale just in time, wherever and whenever needed. It’s a win for EdgeConneX as a company, a win for EdgeConneX customers, and, more importantly, it’s a win for these Veterans as they embark on careers in this new high-growth segment. 

As Lee noted, this program is not only about doing the right thing; it’s about doing the smart thing of hiring people from the military community and getting them into the data center industry.
