Meet a Member – Michael Siteman
National Accounts Manager for INAP

Michael Siteman

In Michael’s current role as a National Account Manager in the Los Angeles area, his goal is to ensure his clients’ business problems are solved by focusing on INAP’s colocation space, network connectivity (Performance IP), and Cloud solutions. The primary focus is on reducing IT related costs and mitigating latency (by as much as 30% via MIRO technology).

Beginning his career in the music industry, Michael transitioned to commercial real estate specializing in data center site selection and negotiations aligning with many companies including The Staubach Company, Base Partners, JLL. A deepening interest and concentration on the data center and IT operations world led Michael to stints with Digital Realty, M-Theory Group, and INAP (formerly Internap Corporation).

While working at JLL, and networking with more data center colleagues, Michael realized there was a need in the Southern California area for a 7×24 Exchange Chapter. Along with four others (Alison Kermode, Steve Nguyen, Jerry Burkhardt, and Eric James), Michael co-founded the 7×24 Exchange International Southern California Chapter in 2010. Two years later, Michael was invited to join the Board of Directors as its Chapter Representative.

“I have found my work on the Chapter level and Board level of 7×24 Exchange to be a richly rewarding experience, and continue to be so impressed not only the leadership at the Board level, but also the growth and quality of the chapters and their membership. The fact that the organization and its chapters operate as non-profit associations has everything to do with the value that it adds to the mission critical world.”
