Ben Gelnett is new marketing manager for DataChambers, based in Charlotte. With 15 years of experience in advertising, design and marketing, he will be responsible for building the company’s brand.

Gelnett currently serves on the Board of Directors for AIGA Charlotte, the local chapter of a national design advocacy organization.

DataChambers has hired Terra Boddy as a business development manager for the Charlotte region – responsible for introducing businesses to a new data center DataChambers is building on the North Carolina Research Campus near Charlotte. Boddy joins DataChambers with extensive experience in technology sales and marketing. Most recently, she was enterprise account manager at DukeNet Communications, where she sold fiber optic connectivity. She also was a sales and marketing specialist with AirTight Mechanical in Charlotte, where she represented HVAC and power maintenance services to data centers and corporate offices.

Boddy will work closely with Brian Cesca, who joined DataChambers as a new Charlotte-area business development manager last year.

Marilyn Tilley has been hired as business development manager for the Raleigh-Durham region. She comes to DataChambers with a wealth of experience in business-to-business technology sales.
