Rackspace Swaps International Head

San Antonio-based Rackspace Hosting said Friday that it has hired a new Managing Director to lead the firm's international operations. The firm said it has appointed Taylor Rhodes to the position, to lead the firm's business in the Europe, Middle East, Africa, and the Asia-Pacific region. Rhodes replaces David Kelly, SVP International, who Rackspace says is leaving to pursue other entrepreneurial interests. Rhodes has been at Rackspace since 2007, and was previously at EDS and the US Marine Corps.
