Rory J. Cutaia
Rory began his career as an attorney at a major NYC law firm, representing world-renowned entrepreneurs. After many years in the legal profession, Rory changed the landscape of the telecom industry through a tech company start-up called Telx, which became the internationally recognized leader in the data center sector and the de facto standard, by which the world’s telecom carriers interconnect to one another, still today. Rory provided the vision for the Company’s strategic goals and objectives, as well as directed all aspects of Telx’s activities and operations. During a course of six years, Rory led Telx from a start-up to a highly successful and lucrative sale of more than $200 million. Following Telx, Rory became a partner and ‘Entrepreneur-in-Residence’ at a NYC private equity fund.
