Stream Data Centers Promotes Longtime Leader to Chief Commercial Officer, Partner

Chris Bair is a longtime member of the Stream leadership team with more than two decades of data center industry experience. He will lead the company's sales, marketing, sales engineering, and customer implementation functions.

Dallas-based Stream Data Centers has promoted Chris Bair to chief commercial officer and partner of the company that delivers exceptional data center experiences to hyperscale and global enterprise customers.

Bair is a longtime member of the Stream leadership team with more than two decades of data center industry experience. He will lead the company’s sales, marketing, sales engineering, and customer implementation functions.

“As hyperscalers become increasingly hungry for Stream services, we see that more and more of our deployments are custom and build-to-suit projects. Over the past 24 years, Stream has built a reputation for providing a great customer experience. Bair’s background in leasing, service delivery, operations, and marketing made him the right choice for the job as we continue to evolve and ensure our clients have a great experience working with our firm,” Rob Kennedy, Stream’s co-managing partner, said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to welcome him as a partner, and we know he is ideally suited to help bring Stream into a new era of both customer and revenue success.”

As part of his expanded role, Bair’s team will own the customer experience from initial interaction through design, construction, and deployment while ensuring a successful handoff to Stream’s operations team, the company said.

Delivering bespoke services

The company said that Bair’s promotion underscores its commitment to delivering bespoke services with industry-leading outcomes.

“Stream knows we don’t win or retain customers by using a bunch of hyperbole about our data centers’ technology. Stream’s customers appreciate our customer-first approach and commitment to clear communication and accountability. This commitment and trust become even more important when providing services that meet the complex requirements of the world’s most demanding data center users. Being a leader at Stream during this phase of my career is an honor that is very exciting,” Bair said in a statement. “This team and the company’s values make us well positioned to continue to exceed our clients’ expectations.”

Stream Data Centers has provided premium data center services since 1999, with 90 percent of its inventory leased to Fortune 100 customers.

To date, Stream said it has acquired, developed, and managed 24 data center campuses nationwide.
