News was spreading yesterday that Lee is the new president of Uptime Institute. If you go to the web site you will see the following description. https://uptimeinstitute.com/about-ui/our-team
Lee Kirby - President
Mr. Kirby is President, providing thought leadership, new product development, and strategic marketing. He facilitates prospective engagements and delivers consistent quality services to contracted clients on a global basis. Additionally, Mr. Kirby serves as a spokesperson and evangelist for various initiatives that are focused on solving systemic issues in the industry. He is based in Seattle, Washington, USA.
For a promotion to president I and many others expected a press release from Uptime Institute, but none so far. Oh well. LinkedIn will suffice for now.

Wanted to take time out to congratulate a wonderful friend, mentor and one of the most exceptional people I have ever met, Lee Kirby on his elevation to President of the Uptime Institute. An exceptional leader of an exceptional organization. Congratulations Lee.
Lee Kirby has been around in the data center industry for a while and is a great friend to many of us providing helpful suggestions. One of the memories that sticks in my mind is Lee telling me years ago about 7x24 Exchange conference and his recommendation was key to get me to attend.
