Ashley Muldoon is to be appointed chief executive officer of Global Switch Holdings Limited, promoted from his current role as chief operating officer which he has performed for the last three years.  

Muldoon will replace current Global Switch CEO, John Corcoran, who will retire on 31 December after two decades leading the company.

“The leadership transition comes at an exciting time for Global Switch, as the growth in AI, coupled with our unique platform of irreplaceable data centre campuses in the Tier 1 markets, and our unrivalled customer base, provides exciting opportunities both in existing markets and across new markets to accelerate Global Switch into 2024 and beyond.” 

Corcoran added: “I have known and worked with Ashley Muldoon for over 25 years and in recent years have partnered closely with him at Global Switch in preparation for a smooth leadership transition.  

“In that time, he has developed a deep understanding of all aspects of the company’s operations, and I am confident that with the strong and stable platform we have built, Global Switch will go from strength to strength under the dynamism and energy of his leadership.”
