ATLANTA -- Internap Network Services Corporation (AMEX: IIP - News), the leading provider of performance-based routing technology over the Internet, said today that Patricia L. Higgins, former president and chief executive officer of Tampa, FL-based Switch and Data, has joined the Board of Directors for Internap.

"Patricia Higgins embodies a wealth of industry knowledge and experience, having served in senior executive roles at major U.S. companies," said Gregory A. Peters, president and chief executive officer for Internap. "The timing of today's announcement is also important, as Patricia joins our Board at a period when Internap is seeing significant growth in excess of 30 percent year over year in data center and collocation services, a business she knows extremely well.
