					FORTRUST's Kira McManus Voted One of Colorado's Top 25 Most Powerful
Sales People by Colorado Business Magazine

Denver, CO, February 06, 2013 --(PR.com)-- FORTRUST, the Rocky Mountain Region's premium data
center and colocation services provider announced today that Kira McManus, Director of Business
Development and Channel Management, was voted by Colorado Business Magazine as one of the top 25
sales people in Denver. Colorado Business Magazine received hundreds of nominations statewide for
months prior to the yearly October deadline. Their editorial team carefully analyzed each nomination
based on specific criteria, such as definitive monetary benchmarks and unique customer experiences that
were shared by those responsible for the nomination. Mike Taylor, Managing Editor of Colorado
Business Magazine, commented on their decision to include Kira in the top 25, “Sales productivity was
one factor, but we also took into account qualities such as tenacity, empathy for clients and a
demonstrated passion for the product.”

Kira has an exemplary sales record throughout her more than 15 years in the telecommunications and
colocation industries. As FORTRUST's Director of Business Development, Kira is responsible for
building relationships with organizations to determine colocation requirements that are suitable for
FORTRUST's premium data center offerings. Additionally, in her role as Channel Partner Sales Director,
she determines appropriate partners that help cultivate growth for both FORTRUST and the partner
organization through aligning the needs of the customer with the right solution. Kira oversees the channel
program, managing each individual sales persons channel partners and the maintenance and success of
the program as a whole.

Kira's sales philosophy is predicated on intense relationship cultivation. "I set my intent to enter every
sales opportunity focused on building the relationship with the potential customer in an altruistic fashion,"
McManus says. "I see so many salespeople entering the sale or a partner relationship, asking 'What can
my customer do for me?' rather than what can I give to my customer. When you enter any relationship in
life with friends, partners, etc. with an attitude of 'What can I do to help this person?' I believe the energy
that comes back is three-fold." This approach to customer development mirrors FORTRUST's
organizational philosophy of providing exceptional customer service, a philosophy that permeates
throughout the organization from their fundamental operations team to their sales team.

Kira is also very active in the community. As recently as last week, she organized a drive for the charity,
A Precious Child, an organization that helps young, impoverished children in Denver regain prosperity in
their lives. FORTRUST's Rob McClary added, “We are privileged to have such a caring individual as
part of our FORTRUST team. Kira's devotion to our community and to our customers makes her a truly
invaluable asset. We are extremely proud of her for being selected as part of this elite group of sales
people by Colorado Business Magazine and feel she is more than deserving of such an honor.”
