Message from the CEO
At DE-CIX, being at the forefront of interconnection technology is never the full story. The story is also about the passion and the spirit of the company.
Therefore, it is a pleasure to present the Annual Report 2022, where you will find the story of our last year, the story of our journey towards the interconnection platform of the future, and the stories of some of the vibrant group of colleagues that make DE-CIX what it is – the heart and soul of interconnection.
2022 was a year of strong and healthy economic growth and geographical expansion for the company, and a year in which the structure and leadership of the company was put in place for the next decade of growth in digital services and interconnection demand. It was also a year that saw the gradual return to normality after a global health crisis the likes of which most of us have never seen before. We, the digital infrastructure industry, played a part in bringing the world together while the virus kept us all at a distance – an essential role in protecting economies, creating prosperity, and improving the quality of people’s lives, everywhere.
In 2022, DE-CIX underwent the largest restructuring of its leadership in the history of the company. I am immensely proud to succeed DE-CIX’s founder and longtime leader Harald A. Summa as CEO and Chair of the Board. My sincerest thanks go to Harald for his mentorship and for making DE-CIX the great company it is today. With the extension of the management team to four seats, I am pleased to have three great colleagues at my side: CFO Sebastian Seifert, CTO Dr. Thomas King, and CSO Christian Reuter. Together, we will set the course for the next decade of growth.
