“Evoque has evolved over the past 18 months. What once was a business unit within AT&T has now become a stand-alone company operating 31 data centers globally,” said Caulfield.
“This is the appropriate time to bring someone in to lead the company through the next stage of development. Andy is joining Evoque to lead the next wave of mission-critical decisions and opportunities facing the company.”
Stewart brings more than 15 years of senior management experience, including a decade of strategic development and execution, to Evoque. He previously served chief strategy officer at TierPoint, where he was responsible for leading product development, technology strategy and mergers and acquisitions.
He also held the chief financial officer position and led TierPoint through a series of eleven acquisitions and over $2 billion of equity and debt financings.
Most recently, he was executive adviser at Thompson Street Capital Partners and has served as a board member at managed technology services provider BCM One since January 2019.
Caulfield, who stepped down after 18 months at the helm of Evoque, will support the transition process in the next several months. During his tenure, the company was able to stabilize, retain the client base and build the shared service functions to support the international footprint and operations talent acquired from AT&T in 2018.
“I’m incredibly excited for the opportunity to be joining Evoque as CEO,” Stewart said. “With a foundation of rock-solid data centers, a great set of enterprise clients, and Brookfield’s continued commitment, we will move aggressively to take advantage of the global opportunity for colocation and other IT services.”
