Megaport spin-off and dark fibre infrastructure provider, Superloop, has named a new chief executive to lead its expansion across the Asia Pacific region.
Daniel Abrahams has been appointed chief executive, confirming Superloop’s focus to deliver its fibre optic networks in Singapore and Australia.
Superloop founder, Bevan Slattery, will remain as executive chairman, supporting Superloop’s rapid expansion across the Asia Pacific Region.
Slattery said he was delighted to welcome Daniel to Superloop and looked forward to his leadership and passion in executing on Superloop’s vision to become a leading service provider of connectivity services across the Asia Pacific Region.
Abrahams has worked across major infrastructure projects from concept to build, and has worked for high-growth companies including Toyota, Suncorp, Energex and, most recently, Aurizon.
Abrahams said he was excited to join Superloop and to have the opportunity to work with Slattery and the team to accelerate the immense opportunities available to the company - not only within Australia and Singapore, but the broader Asia Pacific Region as well.
The company plans to have a network of diverse, dark fibre options between Global Switch and Equinix facilities in Sydney and Melbourne, and the national network of NextDC data centres by January 2015.
It has also secured 150km of duct throughout the city-state of Singapore.
These service services are expected to be available by July.
Established in 2014, Superloop is an infrastructure provider of dark fibre connectivity services to large network providers and enterprises operating in the Australian and Singapore markets.
