Welcome to another episode of the Great Business Minds podcast, the definitive show for the business of digital infrastructure.
GBM is brought to you by Preiskel & Co, a leading award-winning City of London law firm, internationally recognised for its expertise in the digital infrastructure industry as well as the telecoms and tech sector work more broadly. Wherever your legal or regulatory needs are (including outer space) Preiskel & Co LLP can support you, so do feel free to reach out to them here.
In this episode, we chat to an accomplished founder within the digital infrastructure landscape.
Philbert Shih is the Founder and Managing Director of Structure Research, an independent Toronto and Singapore-based research and consulting firm devoted to the cloud and data centre infrastructure services markets with a specialization in the hyperscale value chain.
He has covered the infrastructure services space for over 20 years. He is also the conference chair for the annual infra / STRUCTURE summit and heads up the Structure Research consulting practice, which has advised and provided subject matter expertise for transactions across data centre, cloud and managed hosting, with over $3 billion US dollars in value.
Prior to founding Structure Research, Philbert was the first hosting infrastructure analyst hired after Tier1 Research was sold to The 451 Group (2005) and spent six years as Senior Analyst for managed hosting and cloud.
Prior to joining Tier1 Research, he spent more than four years covering the web hosting industry – three of them as Senior Staff Writer for The Web Host Industry Review’s online and print publications.
Philbert holds an MA in Political Science from the University of British Columbia with a specialization in political economic development, and he joins GBM now from Canada’s largest city, Toronto.
