RICK KEINER, VP, FINANCE

Rick Keiner

Rick’s career has been almost a perfect split. 10 years in accounting, then jumping to corporate finance for the back nine. He began his career and was “baptized by fire” in the public accounting world, at Deloitte. He later joined Cincinnati Bell, a regional telecom provider. He worked for 5 years in accounting, investor relations and SEC reporting groups. He then leapt over to the finance side of the house, assuming the Director of Finance role for the Cell Phone division, which at the time was bringing in $300M in annual revenues. After a few years Rick was selected for the team responsible for spinning off in an IPO, the Data Center business, CyrusOne (Nasdaq: CONE). He sat at the helm of the mighty Financial Planning and Analysis group for this $800M annual revenue Data Center REIT. Rick is a self-admitted golf addict, although his game likely won’t reflect this, should you join him at the links. He loves his biennial Canadian canoe fishing trips, an occasional skydive, and watching his fantasy football team struggle mightily. He loves spending time with his family and friends, whether in his hometown of Cincinnati or his new home in Jacksonville Florida.
