RESEARCH STRATEGY

The research team was unable to find the email address or phone number of at least three professionals despite scouring their LinkedIn, social media pages, official company websites, and email finders like Rocket Reach and Voila Norbert. In addition, Colocation America has less than 20 employees, none of which match any of the titles specified, such as engineers, facility managers, and operation managers. The employees we found for the company are Sales professionals. The company does not list any of its executives or employees on its website as well.

Commercial and technical contacts at Fiberlight, Flexential, Google, H5 Data Centers, and Immedion and brief overviews of what these companies do have been entered in End Users tab of the provided spreadsheet. Important notes about these details are provided below.
  • Flexntial could not be located in the public domain. An assumption that Flexntial pertains to Flexential, a provider of data center solutions and facilities, was made.
  • Email finders RocketReach and Hunter were used in determining the email addresses of the identified contacts. Not all provided email addresses are 100% verified. Screenshots of how certain these email finders were about these email addresses have been provided in the spreadsheet.
  • The phone numbers (direct lines) of these contacts could not be located in the public domain. Contact information sites such as ZoomInfo and Apollo were consulted, but unfortunately, these sites only show the company trunk lines. An assumption that these company trunk lines are not of interest was made.
  • The sample position titles that were provided have varying position levels, so an assumption that the position level does not matter was made as well.
  • Two commercial contacts and two technical contacts have been provided for each of the following companies: Fiberlight, Flexential, Google, H5 Data Centers, and Immedion.

Some commercial and technical contacts from Navisite are Kelsic Pross, Garrett Parker, Christine McDermot, and Mike Gallo. We have populated the attached spreadsheet with the requested contact information on each of the contacts.

Summary

Research Strategy

The research team searched through LinkedIn to gather insights around what each company does, along with other interesting data points about each. Next, the team used LikedIn, RocketReach, Voila Nobert, and more to identify individuals who are logically assumed to hold technical and commercial specifications based on their job title and for whom a verified email address could be located. It should be noted here that these email addresses could not be 100% verified without actually attempting to send an email; however, the selected emails were included based on being highly probable according to the respective email databases.

Research Strategy

For this research, Crunchbase and LinkedIn were used to gather basic insights about what each company does, along with other interesting data points about each. Next, sites like LinkedIn, Voila Norbert, and RocketReach were used to identify individuals who are logically assumed to be involved with technical specifications based on their job title (e.g. principal engineer, electrical engineer, project director, etc.) and for whom a verified email address could be located. It should be noted here that these email addresses could not be 100% verified without actually attempting to send an email, however, the selected emails were included based on being highly probable according to the respective email databases (i.e. 90% or higher).

Data Center Electrical Infrastructure: OEMs, Part 4

Contact information for one individual responsible for technical specifications at each of the requested companies has been provided within the enclosed spreadsheet.

Research Overview

  • Given the generally private nature of direct contact information for corporate employees, the research team began the research process by identifying any available email addresses and/or phone numbers for employees associated with the requested organizations. These searches were primarily conducted using employee contact information aggregators (e.g., RocketReach, Hunter.io, Snovio).
  • Once these contact lists were obtained, the research team then searched through the available employee data to identify those individuals who were responsible for technical specifications, as determined by their title at the company.
  • Lastly, the research team validated that the obtained employee names and positions remained valid by corroborating these profiles with third party resources (e.g., LinkedIn, Facebook). The research team also used these additional resources to confirm that all selected employees currently reside in North America.
  • Ultimately, the research team was successful in identifying contact information for employees at each of the specified companies who currently hold positions that give them responsibility for technical specifications.
