Cruthis Recognized for Service to Country and Industry

A company founded by military veterans to support the mission critical data center industry is spotlighting an ESD vet who has made contributions to both.

ESD Senior Project Engineer (and Marine Corps Veteran) Robert Cruthis is featured in a recent profile published by Salute Mission Critical, as part of its Salute Military Community Interview series. Cruthis was selected as an “example of the value military training and experience brings to (the data center industry).”

The feature explores the path Cruthis took from growing up in southern Illinois, to joining the Marines as a Landing Support Specialist working in logistics, to a post-military career that eventually led to him joining ESD designing and enforcing specifications surrounding building automation in data centers. Cruthis says he fully supports Salute and its mission to support the professional lives of veterans. “I know that the military community is made up of the best this country has to offer, and we all benefit from having more veterans in the workplace. Nothing makes me happier than seeing another veteran make the transition from surviving to thriving.”

Salute Mission Critical says it brings the best practices of the military and civilian sectors to address the critical infrastructure facility management needs of hyperscale, colocation, and edge operator data centers.

Employing military veterans is part of ESD’s culture of supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.
