Internap Network Services (INAP) has made a leadership change, hiring digital video veteran Eric Cooney as president and chief executive officer. Cooney will take over on March 16, replacing James DeBlasio, who has resigned but will continue his duties until Cooney arrives. DeBlasio had been president and CEO of Internap since 2005.
Cooney was most recently president and chief executive officer of Tandberg Television, part of the Ericsson Group. Internap board chairman Gene Eidenberg cited Cooney’s experience in the technology industry and “proven track record of increasing shareholder value.”
“His leadership and management skills, combined with his hands-on operational experience in a publicly traded company, are the ideal combination to improve shareholder value and restore investor confidence at Internap,” said Eidenberg.
