NJFX Appoints New VP of Sales and Customer Relations

New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX), the first Tier 3 carrier-neutral colocation facility that intersects where subsea cables from the United States, South America, Europe and the Caribbean meet, has appointed Doug Corbett to the position of vice president of sales and customer relations.

Corbett is responsible for developing strategic domestic and international subsea partnerships for interconnection within NJFX’s Tier 3 carrier-neutral collocation facility.

Prior to joining NJFX, Corbett was VP of Allied Fiber, where he expanded the company’s dark fiber and collocation business, and developed sales campaigns across various industry segments in the U.S. and internationally. Previously, he held senior sales executive positions at Tellabs, Dell, Force 10 Networks and Turin Networks. He began his telecommunications career in networks sales at Rochester Telephone.

“We are delighted to welcome a senior executive of Doug Corbett’s caliber and results-oriented approach,” comments Gil Santaliz, CEO of NJFX. “He is well-known in the industry and is a great addition to the team. This is an exciting time for NJFX, and Doug’s breadth of sales leadership experience on both domestic and international stages makes him an invaluable asset to forming new subsea interconnection partnerships.”

“As NJFX embarks on a historic journey to create a new edge that offers customers greater control of their networks and the freedom to decide how they interconnect U.S. domestic networks with international subsea systems, I am excited to play a pivotal role in contributing my experience to the company’s objectives,” states Doug Corbett. “As the first Tier 3 carrier-neutral colocation facility that intersects where subsea cables from the U.S., South America, Europe and the Caribbean meet, NJFX’s positioning is nothing short of visionary, and to become a member of this game-changing organization is an exhilarating proposition.”

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
