WARSAW, Poland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data centre company, today announces the appointment of Robert Busz as Managing Director for Poland. Equinix arrived in Poland in January 2016 as the result of the company’s acquisition of TelecityGroup, which included two data centres in Warsaw and the PLIX, the leading Internet Exchange in Poland. Recognizing the growth and potential of the Polish market, Equinix recently completed expansion of its second facility in Warsaw. Work is also underway to expand the PLIX to meet the requirements of key participants.
With almost 20 years of experience in management and business development within telecommunications and data management organisations, Robert will use his knowledge to drive Equinix’s commercial growth in Poland.

Most recently, he was Sales Director for CEE, Russia and CIS at the American telecommunications and internet service provider, Level 3 Communications. Prior to that, Robert was Sales Development Director CEE at Swedish telecoms multinational, TeliaSonera International, now Telia Company.
