AI and HPC Veteran To Spearhead Go-To-Market for Cost-Saving, Climate-Aligned Cloud Platform
SAN FRANCISCO, CA / October 5, 2022 / Business Wire / -- Crusoe Energy Systems LLC (Crusoe) announced today that Fiaz Mohamed has joined the company as Vice President, Business Development, CrusoeCloud™. Mohamed joins Crusoe from Amazon Web Services (AWS), where he drove business development and go-to-market strategies for accelerated computing and GPU-based workloads including artificial intelligence (AI) and high performance computing (HPC).
Fiaz Mohamed brings more than 15 years of experience in go-to-market strategy and revenue growth leadership to Crusoe. He has built and led business development teams at both established organizations and startups including Intel, Nervana (acquired by Intel), and Quid (acquired by NetBase). Fiaz also received advanced training as a management consultant at McKinsey & Company. He holds an MBA from the University of Michigan’s Stephen M. Ross School of Business and a Master’s degree in Computer Science from The University of Texas at Dallas.
“I’m excited to be working on CrusoeCloud™ because of its potential to disrupt the high performance cloud computing industry by solving two of the industry’s biggest challenges: the cost of energy and its impact on the environment,” said Mohamed. “Based on my experience of building a significant cloud business within AWS, I believe there is a large market opportunity for the low-cost, climate-aligned computing offered by CrusoeCloud™.”
Crusoe captures stranded and wasted energy resources such as flaring natural gas and excess renewable power to power modular data centers. In April, Crusoe closed a $350 million Series C equity from notable climate and technology venture capital funds, securing new capital to accelerate and scale Crusoe’s deployments.
“Data centers are on track to consume a significant portion of the world’s electricity over the coming decades,” said Crusoe’s Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Chase Lochmiller. “The addition of Fiaz to our team reflects our long-term investment in bringing scalable, clean, low-cost cloud computing to market through our CrusoeCloud™ offerings.”
Powered by stranded energy, CrusoeCloud™ is lowering the cost and environmental impact of cloud computing. CrusoeCloud™ was created for developers who need powerful, reliable solutions for their most demanding workloads, and for organizations looking to make measurable progress toward their environmental goals.
