Web Host ServicesDALLAS, TX – In response to its rapid national growth and customer demands, Horizon Data Center Solutions has promoted Jeff Crawford to national vice president of sales. Operating out of the data center solution provider’s national headquarters in Dallas, Texas, Crawford will be responsible for leading the company’s sales efforts and strategy as well as expanding the company’s customer base as Horizon continues its tri-coastal expansion. Crawford originally joined Horizon Data Center Solutions in 2009.

“Jeff continually proves what a valuable asset he is and has been throughout his time at Horizon,” said Lance Smith, Horizon Data Center Solutions CEO and president. “Jeff has played a critical role in expanding our business in each of the major national power grids as well as fine-tuning operations to incorporate additional services and capabilities as we progress. I look forward to Horizon’s bright future with Jeff at the helm of our sales strategy.”

Crawford brings more than 10 years of direct sales and sales management experience in the telecom and data center space. Previously, Crawford served as a senior account executive at Internap, where his proven sales and sales management skills earned him President’s Club status in 2007 and 2008. Prior to Internap, Crawford maintained a five year tenure at Collocation Solutions/Dataside as a national account executive and branch manager for the company’s Dallas branch.

Prior to entering sales, Crawford served in the U.S. Navy as a master training specialist in the Naval Nuclear Power Program. Crawford holds a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from Michigan State University and a Master of Science in engineering management from the University of Central Florida.

“Jeff has been selling colocation and data center solutions in the Dallas marketplace longer than anyone we know and we’ve been following his career even before he came to Horizon. As such, we knew he was going to be a major asset to Horizon the second he came onboard so it’s not surprise that Jeff has been so successful in such a short period of time,” said Chuck Smith, CMO and executive vice president at Horizon Data Center Solutions. “Jeff not only upholds the high standards we set for ourselves and the industry, but continues to push the envelope even further with the expectations he sets for himself and his sales team – a large part of why he’s been so successful and will continue to do so in his role as national VP of sales.”
