“Neill’s deep expertise in financial management as well as operations makes him an ideal fit for our leadership team,” said Tom Frana, CEO of ViON. “His strategic vision will undoubtedly be an asset to our team, especially as we continue to experience growth in the as-a-Service market and increased demand for our Data Center-as-a-Service offering.”

Blue’s previous positions have also included directing and managing U.S. investment activities in areas such as asset management and real estate investment, as well as serving as a practicing CPA for Ernst & Young.
