Compass Data Centers recently received approval from the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors to build a 760,000 square foot data center campus called "True North" on 103 acres of land in Northern Virginia off of the Dulles Greenway and Sycolin Road.

Come to the Data Center & Cloud Infrastructure Committee's meeting to hear Compass CEO Chris Crosby and Compass Senior Vice President of Development and Acquisitions Chris Curtis discuss their plans for True North and becoming part of Data Center Alley. They will also share their views on the future of the data center industry.

Chris Crosby is well-known in the data center industry. Prior to founding Compass in 2011, Crosby was a senior executive and founding member of Digital Realty Trust. Chris Curtis has had a successful career developing nearly 30 complex build-to-suit projects in over 20 markets.

The session will be moderated by Buddy Rizer, Executive Director, Economic Development for Loudoun County. Buddy was the founder of the Data Center and Cloud Infrastructure Committee and sits on the NVTC Board. He was recently named to the list of Most Influential Virginians.
