Three Executive Changes in Data Center Industry - Michael Siteman, Jim Kennedy and Dileep Bhandarkar

Here are three executives I've gotten to know at Data Center Conferences that have made Role Changes in the past couple of months.  They have all updated their LinkedIn profiles which makes their move a public disclosure. 

First Michael Siteman has move from JLL to Digital Realty Trust.

Jim Kennedy moved from RagingWire to Google.  Jim gave a great talk at 7x24 Exchange Fall on the economics of a water system's ROI when you account for the value of the power to business.  Many make the mistake of just thinking of the cost of the power, and not the revenue that power brings into the company.
