Savvis, the provider of cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions for enterprises bought by CenturyLink last year, has a new president.

Jeff Von Deylen previously was senior VP of global operations and client services for Savvis; he assumes his new position from Bill Fathers, who has chosen to leave the company after a transition period set to end in March 2013. No specific reason was given for his departure.

“Jeff has been vital to Savvis’ success for nearly a decade, focusing on growth and improvement strategies for our network, colocation, managed hosting and cloud solutions,” said Jim Ousley, chief executive officer of Savvis and president of CenturyLink’s enterprise markets group. “Under Bill’s leadership, Savvis has experienced significant growth, both to its global footprint and product portfolio. This vision has helped shape a strong course for Jeff to take forward.”

Von Deylen has been with Savvis since 2003, when he joined the company as chief financial officer and board member. During Von Deylen’s six years as CFO, Savvis says it has experienced steady growth as the result of several acquisitions, the raising of significant financing and the expansion of Savvis’ data center and network footprint.

Before joining Savvis, Von Deylen held financial and corporate development positions at American Electric Power, GTS Telecommunications, Qwest Communications and Arthur Andersen.
