McAllen, TX, June 25, 2019 – MDC Data Centers, the leading carrier-neutral data center provider on the US-Mexico border, announced today that industry veteran Ivan Eng had joined the company as Director of Strategic Planning. This new position is critical for the company as it continues growing its interconnection hubs on the edge of Mexico.
