It was a mere 2 years ago when Adaire Fox-Martin was announced as the new head of Google in Ireland and a year ago when she was appointed President of Google Cloud Go to Market. Now she is on the move to Equinix – the world’s digital infrastructure company®.

Adaire is familiar with Equinix as she has been on the Board of Directors for the last four years.  Equinix enables organisations to access the right places, partners and possibilities to scale with agility, speed the launch of digital services, deliver world-class experiences and multiply their value, while supporting their sustainability goals. So given Adaire’s more than 25 years of experience in the technology sector, she brings a distinguished track record to her new role at Equinix.

“After three incredibly memorable years with Google Cloud, I will soon take on my next challenge. I’m delighted to share that I will be joining the team at Equinix as President and CEO,” she announced through social media recently.

According to Equinix, the current President and CEO Charles Meyers will transition to the role of Executive Chairman, and Adaire Fox-Martin will begin serving as Equinix President and CEO. Peter Van Camp, currently Executive Chairman, will step away from his formal responsibilities as a Board member to take the role of Special Advisor to the Board.

During Charles Meyers tenure, he shaped the company’s successful strategy, extending Platform Equinix to more than 70 markets across 33 countries, accelerating the company’s global interconnection leadership and evolving the platform to support hybrid and multi-cloud as the clear architecture of choice. The company has enjoyed a 6x increase in revenue and added more than $80 billion in equity value. Charles will continue in the role of CEO until late Q2.

On her appointment, Adaire said: “In today’s dynamic digital landscape, Equinix has uniquely amassed global reach, highly differentiated ecosystems, strong partner relationships, and an innovative range of product and service offerings – collectively forming a robust and future-proofed platform to address diverse customer challenges.”

“Coupled with my passionate belief in the vision, mission and values of Equinix, I am excited to leverage my experience in driving business transformations and building for scale to drive continued innovation and growth at Equinix,” she added.
