After spending a considerable amount of time analyzing the company's sales strategy, its Massively Modular approach to facility design, and its interconnection and service plans on the horizon, I am convinced it is well positioned to become a world class brand.” Brueggeman's 20 years of marketing and sales experience includes Fortune 50 firms, as well as smaller high-growth companies. He was chief marketing officer at PEAK6 Investments, a high growth financial services firm.
