She joins Switch after a 17-year stint at RBC Capital Markets, where she most recently was the managing director and global head of Communications Infrastructure. There, she provided companies in the data center and fiber sectors with financial advisory services including mergers and acquisitions, leveraged buyouts, recapitalization and equity, and debt underwriting.

"Madonna will be a wonderful addition to our executive team," said Switch founder and CEO Rob Roy.

"As a global leader in technology infrastructure around data centers and telecommunications, Madonna’s extensive knowledge and unmatched experience will be a tremendous asset to Switch."

Switch was acquired by DigitalBridge and IFM for $11 billion back in 2022. Jon Mauck, senior managing director and head of data center investments at DigitalBridge, said: "We are excited to welcome Madonna to the executive team of Switch.

"Her experience in the digital infrastructure sector and expertise across capital markets are a perfect match to support Switch’s rapid growth, increasingly driven by demand for core enterprise outsourcing and AI workloads."
