Seasoned industry veteran to partner with hyperscale, cloud and enterprise clients to deliver exceptional performance and top-tier customer service

New York, NY (June 5, 2024) — Edged Energy, the fast-growing sustainable data center infrastructure company, today announced the appointment of top industry veteran Royce Thomas as Chief Revenue Officer. The seasoned sales executive brings more than 30 years of global sales, business development and marketing experience to guide the team’s rapid U.S. expansion. In his role as Chief Revenue Officer, Thomas will be responsible for the overall customer experience and go-to-market strategy, including driving revenue growth, identifying strategic partnerships, and building a world-class sales and customer service organization.

“We are honored to welcome an industry leader of Royce’s caliber to the team. He has built lasting relationships with many of the world’s top hyperscale, enterprise and AI companies by consistently delivering exceptional results and putting the customer experience at the center of everything he does,” said Edged Chief Executive Officer Bryant Farland. “His proven track record and deep technical knowledge position him well to help drive the next chapter of our growth and ensure the long-term success of Edged data centers.”

Edged is building a gigawatt-scale global network of ultra-efficient, AI-ready data centers with waterless cooling across Europe and North America. The highly differentiated data center platform is the first large-scale deployment of waterless cooling systems across an entire portfolio. The state-of-the-art facilities support the intense demands of generative AI and high-performance GPU-based computing—supporting 200 kW/rack with liquid-cooling integration—without consuming any water for cooling. The platform is significantly more efficient than conventional data centers, reducing energy overhead by 74% compared with the global industry average.

“I am thrilled to join Edged and be part of the team providing our customers with the critical digital infrastructure and breakthrough sustainable technologies they need for their businesses to thrive,” said Thomas. “Edged is changing what is possible in the industry and the company brings a commitment to innovation, people and performance that perfectly aligns with my values of prioritizing customer relationships, empowering team members and ensuring flawless execution and operations. I am excited to leverage our unique technology stack to deliver cutting-edge solutions that support AI, cloud, and enterprise IT. Together, we will build ecosystems that benefit our customers and drive outstanding results.”
