Stream Data Centers: Chris Bair joins Stream Data Centers as SVP of Sales

Dec 12, 2019 | Posted by Eric Advinci

Chris Bair has joined Stream Data Centers as the SVP of Sales and Leasing. Bair, who has arguably the quickest wit in the industry, has over 20 years of experience in the sector.

Bair started his career as a Pilot and Captin in the US Air Force. Had a stint at Time Warner Telecom before joining Inflow, a regional data center provider, while working his way up to become the RVP who had P&L responsibility for six eastern regional markets. Inflow was acquired by SunGard and Bair became the Western RVP of Sales.

After a time at Qualifacts, a software company in the health industry, Bair dove back into the data center industry as head of Sales for CoreSite. A time that stretched from pre-IPO period in 2010 until two years after IPO.

Next, Bair spent almost six years building Iron Mountain's data center division as head of Sales and Marketing. During this time, Iron Mountain's data center division grew rapidly and made notable acquisitions, including Foretrust in Denver, Credit Suisse facilities in Singapore and London, and Evoswitch in Amsterdam

Dallas, TX – December 10, 2019 – Stream Data Centers, an industry leader in providing premium data center solutions, is enhancing its ability to help customers establish carefully planned, end-to-end data center footprints throughout the US. To support this initiative, the company’s senior leadership has added Chris Bair to the team as Senior Vice President of Sales and Leasing. With over 20 years of experience in the data center sector, Chris is charged with providing trusted expertise to enterprise and hyperscale cloud customers.

“Though mature, today’s data center market is being heavily influenced by surging enterprise and cloud provider demand for hyperscale data centers, high density deployments and diverse, ultra-low latency connectivity options,” says Michael Lahoud, Chief Operating Officer at Stream Data Centers. “We already have a strong portfolio of existing data centers and operational services. However, we also leverage our deep-seated real estate expertise to help our customers decide whether to build, lease or perform sale leasebacks – whatever makes the most sense for them from a financial and logistical perspective. With his track record of success, Chris will play a crucial role in bringing the Stream experience to more enterprises and cloud providers across the US.”

“I am excited to join the Stream team and spread the message that whether it’s space, high density, location, cloud onramps or access to fiber, we have all this and more for our customers,” says Chris Bair, SVP of Sales and Leasing at Stream. “The Stream team is replete with talent coupled with a very customer-oriented approach to doing business. Thanks to this, as well as the company’s longevity and strong financial position, we provide a rich data center environment that permits our customers to grow over time and access new markets as we also expand further. We are truly a trusted partner and I look forward to working with existing and new customers in this manner over the coming weeks and months.”
