15 June 2020 – Liquidity Connect, a technology provider of outsourced Infrastructure as a Service (IasS), announced today that they have named Raymond Holbrook as their new Chief Information Officer. Prior to joining Liquidity Connect, Holbrook was the Global Director of IT for oneZero Financial Systems, based in Boston, Massachusetts. During his near six-year tenure he designed, planned, and implemented new Equinix Data Centre locations in London-LD4, Hong Kong-HK1 and Tokyo-TY3 to meet growing global demand for the oneZero Financial platform. He managed the day to day operations and health of oneZero’s five Global Data Centres, along with dozens of client, vendor, and partner relationships.

In a statement by Victor Hendrix, CEO of Liquidity Connect, “We are very pleased to add Ray’s tremendous breadth of skills and experience to our team. Additionally, he brings with him an invaluable knowledge and understanding of the needs and requirements that our customers demand and deserve. His reputation and achievements with oneZero Financial Systems made his selection a very easy decision.”

According to the company, Holbrook’s first order of business will be to lead Liquidity Connect’s global expansion into Asia. Having adopted a demand-driven growth model, the company has identified Equinix Tokyo-TY3 as its next data centre location. Slated for 2020-Q3, TY3 will provide Liquidity Connect customers with immediately-available VPS, dedicated bare-metal servers, and ultra-low latency fibre cross connects to several liquidity and technology providers in the Asia Pacific Region. Dedicated fibre connectivity, backhauled to CH1 / LD4 / NY4 data centres will also be part of its new TY3 network.

Liquidity Connect’s investment in Japan marks its second major data centre announcement in less than one year. The Company announced its new network in London-LD4 in November 2019, following a substantial Cage acquisition in NY4 earlier that year. The addition of Equinix TY3 will extend Liquidity Connect’s wide area connectivity offering by extending its colocation and connectivity services to brokers, liquidity and technology providers in the region.
