DALLAS, Oct. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- DataSpan, a leading Dallas-based provider of data lifecycle management solutions, today celebrates the one-year anniversary of the acquisition last fall by DataSpan Holdings. By combining four decades of industry experience and a sharp focus on data lifecycle management, DataSpan is poised to meet the needs of today's business as the digital universe grows exponentially. 

"It's been an exciting first year for us. Our rebranding efforts to establish a new vision and focus on data lifecycle management are addressing a tremendous void in the market. The data center industry is undergoing a significant transformation, and we're uniquely positioned as one of the few value-added resellers with a national presence. By coupling the industry expertise of our management team with our proven, market-leading solutions, we're able to deliver (at scale) solutions that span multiple stages of data's lifecycle," said Nancy Shemwell, Chief Operating Officer, DataSpan.

This vision was further endorsed by the industry when the DataSpan Holdings' acquisition of DataSpan was selected as a finalist for D CEO's 2015 M&A awards, recognizing outstanding Dallas-based corporate transactions and the associated dealmakers who help put them together. DataSpan's executive team includes telecom and IT veterans Micky Tsui and Nancy Shemwell, who together manage DataSpan Holdings and acquired DataSpan in October 2014. Paul Zaidins, Managing Partner & Founder of Bonefish Capital, sponsored the transaction and now serves as Chairman of the Board, bringing his extensive investment expertise to the business.

Over the past year, DataSpan has experienced a significant increase in its data center infrastructure business. Leveraging the talent of its national sales team, DataSpan forged new customer relationships with regional and national colocation centers. The company has also expanded partnerships with significant technology providers. In March Emerson Network Power named DataSpan its U.S. Solution Provider Partner of the Year, representing its outstanding IT reseller partner performance.  

In addition to growing key relationships and in turn, experiencing impressive business growth, DataSpan is investing in its team. Bringing industry expertise to its corporate team, most recently DataSpan announced the strategic hire of its Vice President of Business Development and Sales Operations Tonya Lowe, Controller Mike Barber and Treasurer Mark Hungle. DataSpan has also added regional sales representatives nationwide and established a robust internship program. Continuing to hire aggressively, positions are currently available nationwide for account managers, customer service representatives, and inside sales representatives nationwide.

"We would like to thank our customers, partners and employees for making this a tremendous first year. We're proud of this year's significant accomplishments and look forward to the success that our second year has in store," continued Shemwell.  

To celebrate its first anniversary, DataSpan will hold an anniversary breakfast at its warehouse today, and will host an open house for technology suppliers on October 7 at its new corporate headquarters in Uptown Dallas.
