“Jim had the foresight to advise us on innovative solutions that decreased our operating costs and tax burden.”

Jim assisted Equinix and 365 Main in selecting and acquiring its data center sites. That was 10 years ago when Jim had the foresight to advise us on innovative solutions that decreased our operating costs and tax burden. I continue to rely on Jim and North American Data Centers for bringing unparalleled knowledge of what is going on in the various data center markets and insights into the various operators.
