CyrusOne Taps Guggenheim Partners Exec As Strategy Head

In a move which may signal a possible increase in mergers and acquisition activity, Dallas-based data center operator CyrusOne says this morning that it has named Jonathan Schildkraut, most recently at investment advisory firm Guggenheim Partners, as the company's new Chief Strategy Officer and Executive Vice President. CyrusOne said that Schildkraut will help refine its digital infrastructure strategy, overseeing new investments, mergers and acquisitions, as well as joint venture arrangements. Schildkraut joins the company from Guggenheim Partners, where he was Senior Managing Director in Equity Research. Schildkraut has also served at Evercore IS and Jeffries, along with Winstar Communications and Salomon Smith Barney.
