Digital Realty top execs acknowledged for achievements

07 May 2019

Colocation and interconnection solutions provider Digital Realty is celebrating recent successes by its top executives.

Chief Executive Officer A. William Stein and Executive Vice President, Operations, Erich Sanchack have been recognized by the Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) for their achievements in business and leadership in community engagement, and leadership in business development at the Virginia Data Center Awards event in Leesburg, Virginia. 

Mr. Stein was honored with NVTCs "Data Center Industry Icon" award for his visionary leadership in transforming Digital Realty and pioneering the data center industry, and in turn, the northern Virginia and U.S. economies. Digital Realty's enterprise value has nearly tripled since Mr. Stein's appointment as Chief Executive Officer in 2014, and he has led a significant expansion of the company's global reach across Europe, Latin America and the Asia Pacific region.

The NVTC honored Erich Sanchack with the "Data Center Community Champion" award for his role in spearheading Digital Realty's community initiatives and driving the company's positive community impact, specifically within the local Virginia communities where Digital Realty operates.

Over the last year, Digital Realty employees co-hosted a donation drive for the Loudoun Abused Women's Shelter, packaged 10,000 meals at the Dulles Expo Center for victims of natural disasters and food insecurity, raised more than $62,000 by participating in the American Heart Association's "Heart Walk" in Ashburn, and collected 355 pounds of food for Loudoun Hunger Relief.

"These awards and honors reflect both the tremendous evolution of Digital Realty as a business and community leader, and the valuable role that our team has played in driving our transformation and success to date," says Stein.

"While these are individual recognitions, they speak volumes to the incredible team behind us, without whom we would not be able to make such a positive impact within our organization and on the growing number of communities where we work."

The awards saw more than 300 industry executives in attendance to discuss a strong workforce pipeline and other key factors in maintaining Virginia's competitiveness in the industry and to recognize individuals and projects that represent excellence in areas of sustainability, construction, advocacy and community engagement and support.
