Element Critical last year had the biggest quarter for sales in the company’s history. While it does not publicly report the numbers, Element Critical said it grew revenue 122.7 percent in the last quarter of 2022 versus the same quarter a year ago.
In September, the company hired two data center industry veterans to steer its revenue generation by hiring Regis Malloy as chief strategy officer and Steve Weaver as chief revenue officer. Malloy previously worked at Oracle, Avaya and Qwest CyberSolutions. Weaver previously worked as senior vice president and chief sales officer for vXchnge.
Element Critical offers data center services in Chicago; Austin, Texas; Houston, Silicon Valley and Virginia. The company said it expects strong growth this year in the technology, finance, energy and hyperscale sectors.
