Edge Centres appoints former Multacom CEO as CTO

As CTO, Kiarash Jahangiri will take responsibility for facilities, network and support overseeing consolidation and integration at Edge Centres

Former CEO award-winning California-based data centre provider Multacom, Kiarash Jahangiri, has joined the executive team of Edge Centres as it continues its growth into North America. 

The news follows the designations of Chief Cloud Officer (CCO) Scott Le Marquand and CRO Michael Roelker in recent months.

His appointment, effective immediately, means Jahangiri will take responsibility for facilities, network and support overseeing the consolidation and integration of Edge Centres’ growing edge data centre footprint into a single platform.

Edge Centres’ growth into the US

Australian-founded Edge began its growth into the US after acquiring a facility in St Louis, Missouri, in April 2023, where it also opened its US head office. And in the months since, Edge Centres has continued to rapidly grow its presence stateside across multiple states.

In California, Missouri, Michigan, and Virginia, Edge Centres is assembling the first phase of an expansion that will see the acquisition of 20 facilities in the US over a three-year period.

Jahangiri said: "I believe this edge platform will scale at an unprecedented rate across the US. I am proud to be a part of this team during this expansion, and I’m looking forward to driving innovation in order to accelerate platform design and consolidation, helping Edge Centres to deliver unparalleled value to our clients in the US, Asia, Australia, and beyond.”

Who is Edge Centres’ new CTO Kiarash Jahangiri?

“We are lucky to have Kia onboard,” Edge’s CEO Jonathan Eaves said. “After working with him for the last 12 months, it was clear that he would flourish in this role. He brings a wealth of experience that will enable our edge platform to be leading at the edge.”

Jahangiri joins Edge Centres from Multacom, where he has served as CEO from March 2005 until the news of his new role was released this week. As CEO, he was responsible for corporate strategy, customer relations, technology management and Multacom’s long-term growth objectives.

He has a career spanning more than 20 years and boasts a wealth of computer engineering and programming experience, and is a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) and a Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP).

Prior to his tenure at Multacom, Jahangiri worked for a variety of data centres, managed service, and shared hosting providers as CTO. He also served as Head of R&D for an innovative technology consulting firm.
