Welcome back to another installment of our “Meet the DRFortress Team” blog series.
Our featured employee is David Lyon, a Facilities Supervisor at DRFortress. David ensures that all the services DRFortress provides run smoothly for its customers across many industries. As part of his duties, he guarantees that the company’s systems, infrastructure, and redundancies are functioning properly by conducting daily maintenance and testing.
David brings more than 20 years of experience in the data center industry to his role at DRFortress, including working for both CentriLogic and Verio. “I’ve been working in data centers like DRFortress for 21 years,” he said. “I found out about the position from a previous colleague who loved working with Rosa and the team.”
As for working at DRFortress, David truly enjoys working with his co-workers and pitching in to help whenever and wherever he is needed. “I’ve built my career on one simple principle: Work smarter,” David stated. “I’m the person who finds ways to streamline processes and consistently strives to boost the productivity of everyone around me. I’m very willing to quickly learn new things without fear of hard work.”
David is excited to continue to grow with DRFortress as it continues to expand and extend its services to the Hawaiian business community. Having already completed three expansions and grown more than ten times in revenue, space, environmental controls, and power capacity than any other local supplier, DRFortress is planning for yet another big announcement – an additional facility in Q4 2022. “I’m so thrilled to see our company grow and continue to provide data centers solutions to a place I have grown to love and call home.”
When not researching how to fix something on his car or house, you will find him on the golf course or enjoying time with his three-year-old son.
