The ongoing growth of any multinational company lies in its keystone investments, and as chief financial officer of one of the world’s biggest data centre companies, Andy Power has been involved in his fair share of these.
Digital Realty’s global footprint crosses six continents, 21 countries, 45 metropolitan areas and counting. The data centre business is one of meaningful and strategic expansion, says Power, whose long view of global economic tides comes from experiencing them first-hand. He was part of the lead underwriting team that advised the San Francisco-headquartered company on its initial public offering in 2004 and has served on nearly every subsequent public capital raise to its current market capitalisation of around $39bn.
