“We have attended and sponsored many SIM Chicago events in the past, and the CyrusOne staff looks forward to continuing our support of such a great organization in 2016,” said Scott Brueggeman, chief marketing officer, CyrusOne. “Our aspirations coincide as both of our organizations look to provide new and inventive opportunities to those in the business and technology fields.”
