Chayora Limited has appointed James McCartney as Executive Vice President of Sales (APAC), based in Singapore, where the company is also opening a regional office.  

McCartney joins Chayora – an infrastructure investor, developer and operator of hyperscale data centre campuses in China – from Telstra, where he held a senior customer-focused role developing cloud and data centre strategies and solutions.

McCartney will draw on his 15 years of experience to develop Chayora’s APAC customer base, including leading engagements with colocation strategic partners. Priorities will be focusing on APAC customer relationships and leading the engagement with Telstra as Chayora’s strategic partner for colocation.

“Having James join our team is a recognition of Chayora’s continuing successful growth and enables us to expand particularly within the financial services and hyperscale cloud sectors and to develop meaningful long-term relationships with our customers operating out of Singapore,” said Oliver Jones, Co-Founder and CEO, Chayora. “We look forward to deploying James’ expertise across the APAC region.”

Chayora is opening a new office in the Ocean Financial Centre, Singapore, to support further growth in the region. 

“I’m excited to be joining the dedicated Chayora team that Oliver and Jonathan have built in China and around the world,” said McCartney. “This is a critical time when we’re seeing the greatest demand for digital infrastructure and mass adoption of cloud platforms, services, and solutions. Especially with regulatory changes that govern the financial services sector, I look forward to supporting our financial institutional customers to enable them to expand their business in greater China.”

The Singapore office follows the opening of a Shanghai office in June this year as Chayora continues its expansion into the digital infrastructure market in China.
