Marc Ganzi is widely recognized as a key figure driving communications infrastructure deployment around the world. Today, Ganzi wears several hats as CEO of Digital Colony, Co-Founder and CEO of Digital Bridge, and CEO-Elect of Colony Capital, Inc. (NYSE: CLNY), a role he’s slated to assume by 2021.
It was in 2013 when this multi-hyphenate executive, along with Ben Jenkins, founded Digital Bridge, an organization that went on to become a leading investor and operator of digital infrastructure companies in no time. The firm has a well-earned reputation, thanks to its unparalleled industry knowledge and operational expertise. Digital Bridge boasts six companies across the U.S. and Latin America (Mexico Tower Partners, Vertical Bridge, ExteNet Systems, Andean Telecom Partners, DataBank and Vantage Data Centers) in its current portfolio. In addition, Digital Bridge manages six other firms through the Digital Colony Partners Fund, the first-ever fund (amounting to more than $4.05 billion) dedicated to investing in the digital infrastructure sector, which launched earlier this year. The Fund has made six global investments to date: Andean Telecom Partners, Digita Oy, Aptum Technologies, the FreshWave Group, Beanfield Technologies and Highline do Brasil. There’s also its pending transaction for Zayo Holdings Group, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO), in partnership with EQT.
