CoreSite Chops COO

Denver-based data center operator CoreSite Realty, the provider of data center products and services, said today that its COO, Jarrett Appeby, is leaving the firm to "pursue other opportunities", and that it is eliminating the COO role at the company. The company said the move comes as part of a strategic realignment of the company's sales and marketing organization. As part of the executive shuffle, the company said Steven SMith has been appointed Senior Vice President of Sales; Smith was most recently a Regional VP at SAP.
