KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 3 (Bernama) -- DigitalBridge Investment Management, the investment management arm of DigitalBridge Group Inc, and funds affiliated with Columbia Capital have formed Xenith Infrastructure Group (Xenith IG).

Xenith IG is a new fibre platform serving hyperscalers, data centre operators, carriers and enterprises in the Asia-Pacific region. 

According to a statement, Xenith IG’s initial assets comprise conduit and fibre assets in Singapore and Hong Kong, which it acquired from Superloop.

Xenith IG will be led by Clement Goh, who was appointed chief executive officer (CEO) effective Aug 1, 2022.

Goh brings more than 20 years of digital infrastructure and technology sector experience in the Asia-Pacific market to Xenith IG.

“We believe Xenith IG is ideally positioned to capitalise on the significant growth of network demand observed in Asia Pacific,” said managing director and head of Asia at DigitalBridge, Justin Chang. 

“We are also thrilled to welcome Clement in his role as CEO. Clement brings a deep understanding of the connectivity and data centre businesses in this region, and we look forward to working with him to grow the Xenith IG platform into a premier fibre infrastructure provider in this region.”

Meanwhile, Goh said: “I am honoured to serve as Xenith IG’s CEO and look forward to working with the entire team to address the increased demand for reliable and high-performance fibre connectivity as digitalisation continues to grow in this region.”

Over the course of his career, Goh has held senior executive and operational positions at several digital infrastructure and technology firms in the Asia-Pacific markets. He joins Xenith IG from ST Telemedia Global Data Centres, where he served as the CEO for Southeast Asia.
