Two years after joining Hanley Energy LLC to lead its then-new North American headquarters in Ashburn, Mike Baris has been promoted to president of the company.
In his new position, Baris will report to the company co-founders Clive Gilmore and Dennis Nordon and will be responsible for the daily running of existing business in North America and will work closely with both the sales and operations divisions.
Baris previously served as Hanley’s director of sales. Prior to that he worked in the data center industry with Abovenet, led the East Coast sales team at Digital Realty before moving over to business development roles at managed hosting provider Conscious Networks and internet provider Atlantech Online, where he delivered multi-million-dollar increases in sales.
“Mike has been a great addition to the Hanley Energy team to help focus the direction of the company,” Gilmore stated. “His lengthy background in sales and track-record in some of the most successful data center companies in North America, and extensive experience in business development and building client relationships will help us to further expand our reach.”
