Q&A With Peak 10's Chris Downie On Recurring Revenue And Growth

The Growth Rolls On For Peak 10

Six months into his new role as CEO of Peak 10, Chris Downie is overseeing a surge in business, highlighted recently by the completion of a 20,000-square-foot expansion of its data center in the Cincinnati area, and a 6,000-square-foot expansion of its data center campus in University Research Park, based in Peak 10's hometown, Charlotte, N.C.

Peak 10 is growing aggressively, having also expanded at four other locations. And it recently acquired a 33,000-square-foot data center in Louisville, Ky. The provider of IaaS, connectivity and cloud services thrives on recurring revenue, which has helped Peak 10 plan its growth.
