Todd Cushing – The Carrier Hotel – 1623 Farnam

In this episode I am joined by Todd Cushing, President of 1623 Farnam based in Omaha, US. Todd has spent his career in the data center industry and he is now responsible for a major interconnectivity facility in the US.

We start by discussing how Todd started his career in the data center sector at the age of 16 and how he has worked in the industry ever since. We then discuss Todd’s career path, the time he spent with CBRE, and the reasons for seeking a return to a role that allowed him to get his ‘hands dirty’.

Finally we discuss 1623 Farnam and the offering they provide within the US. Todd outlines the history of the building (it was once a bank), the challenges of developing a live multi-storey facility, and the importance of 1623 Farnam to connectivity in the US.

Todd has extensive experience in the data center sector and offers excellent advice to those looking to join the industry. Enjoy!
