(DENVER) — Aug. 30, 2022 — Cologix, North America’s leading network-neutral interconnection and hyperscale edge data center company, announced today that Chief Financial Officer Rachel Stack has been named a 2022 C-Suite Award winner by the Denver Business Journal. The award honors executive leaders who recognize opportunities, identify and manage risk, and achieve profitable growth for their Colorado-headquartered organizations.
Stack was recognized for this award for her exemplary results in overseeing the successful close of Cologix’s $3 billion equity recapitalization transaction in April 2022. Besides leading the process from beginning to close of the transaction, she was active in all investor discussions, including market visits, to ensure a favorable outcome. Stack also ensured the successful completion of Cologix’s $1.65 billion asset-backed securitization transaction, increasing the company’s access to additional capital with current and new investors to fuel the company’s growth strategy.
“I’m honored to be recognized with this prestigious award,” said Stack. “I know there are many esteemed executives and leaders in the Denver area, and I would like to congratulate the other winners. Going through a recapitalization and debt refinancings of this magnitude was a distinctive experience and the Cologix team worked tirelessly to ensure we positioned the company for its next stage of growth.”
“We are excited to celebrate Rachel and her many accomplishments at Cologix through this honor,” said Cologix Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bill Fathers. “Rachel is a key leader in our company and her efforts to recapitalize its equity, raising billions to support future expansion were exceptional. Simultaneously, she refinanced Cologix’s debt to halve the effective interest rate on all debt. The best CFOs know more than finance and accounting, they are true partners of the business. I’m proud to have Rachel by my side as she plays a critical role in Cologix’s long-term success.”
Prior to joining Cologix in 2020, Stack held senior financial leadership positions at Zayo and RBC’s Communications, Media and Entertainment group, where she worked with large telecom and communications infrastructure companies. During her time at RBC’s investment bank, she led the execution of more than 25 M&A transactions totaling more than $3 billion and 50 financings totaling $150 billion.
Stack holds a master’s degree from Columbia Business School and a bachelor’s degree in Economics from Columbia University.
