Dallas’ CyrusOne Adds Chief Investment Officer to Leadership Team

In this new role, Fran Federman is responsible for leading CyrusOne’s capital markets activities and related strategic transactions.

Fran Federman has joined CyrusOne as chief investment officer of the Dallas-based global data center developer and operator specializing in delivering state-of-the-art digital infrastructure solutions.

In this new role, Federman is responsible for leading CyrusOne’s capital markets activities and related strategic transactions.

“I am excited to take on my new role as chief investment officer at CyrusOne. Having previously held strategic capital and investment roles at industry-leading firms, I am eager to leverage my experience to elevate CyrusOne’s short- and long-term investment portfolio to ensure economic returns. As a company that recently went private, now is the time to be nimble and strategic especially during a time of growth, and I am honored to be a part of that,” Federman said in a statement.

Previously, Federman was chief financial officer at IQHQ, a developer and owner of life science real estate.

Focus on capital

Before that, she served in various roles at healthcare and real estate capital provider Ventas, Inc., most recently as vice president of capital markets and managing director of the Ventas Life Science and Healthcare Real Estate Fund.

Federman also worked as the director of Global Treasury and Capital Markets at Terraform Global, an emerging market yieldco for Sun Edison, including during its IPO, and held roles in Capital Market and Finance at Prologis, a global industrial REIT.

“Fran brings a breadth of unique experiences with other capital-intensive real estate businesses that will accelerate CyrusOne’s success in this critical area,” CyrusOne CEO Eric Schwartz said in a statement. “Capital remains a foundational requirement for our continued growth. As the industry continues to evolve, our customers’ needs also change. Having Fran in this role will help us meet and exceed the demands of the industry.”

With more than 50 high-performance mission-critical facilities worldwide, CyrusOne ensures the continued operation of digital infrastructure for nearly 800 customers, including roughly 200 Fortune 1000 companies.
