Data center provider Internap Network Services Corp. has hired Pete Bell as its senior vice president of global sales.
Bell will oversee the company’s worldwide sales organizations selling hybrid cloud, hosting and colocation services.
Bell comes to Internap from NTT Communications, where he served as vice president and general manager of global solutions. Before NTT, Bell worked for Global Crossing as senior vice president of the global partner program. Bell has worked in sales leadership roles for more than 25 years, at other companies including BT Global Services, WilTel Communications and Cable & Wireless.
Eric Cooney, president and CEO of Internap, said the company’s data center services now comprise 73 percent of revenue, with cloud and bare-metal hosting leading the way.
“Over the past year, we’ve steadily retooled the sales organization to enhance hosting expertise and align with this strategic shift,” Cooney said. “Pete’s established track-record of motivating global sales teams to drive growth makes him the ideal leader to head up the organization and build on our strong performance and momentum.”
