This appointment affirms RagingWire's commitment to building a world-class management team with experienced industry insiders and experts. Golding brings more than 15 years of experience in the fields of Internet engineering, data center design, and critical facilities management.

Prior to DH Capital, Golding was vice president of research at industry analyst firm Tier1 Research, where he supervised research and consulting efforts in the areas of shared, dedicated, and managed hosting. He also led the firm's entrance into the data center and cloud computing sectors. Before joining Tier1, Golding directed global peering efforts at America Online and served as a nuclear engineer in the U.S. Navy. Dan received a Bachelor of Engineering degree from Auburn University and a Master's degree in Telecommunications from George Mason University.
