Scott Drake and Yancey Spruill Join Zayo’s Board of Directors

Press Release

BOULDER, Colo. –
Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) today announced that Scott Drake
has been elected by shareholders and Yancey Spruill has been appointed
by the Board to the company’s Board of Directors, effective today. Drake
is replacing Nina Richardson, whose term expired yesterday. Spruill is
replacing Phil Canfield, who resigned following the November Board
meeting, after completing a six-year tenure. Phil’s departure follows
GTCR’s exit of its ownership position in the summer of 2018.

“I’d like to thank Nina and Phil for their contributions. Nina’s
operational expertise was valuable as we’ve continued to expand
internationally. Phil provided insightful guidance over a critical
period in Zayo’s history and was instrumental in many of Zayo’s
acquisitions, including AboveNet. GTCR saw the tremendous opportunity in
Zayo’s thesis and as a result achieved a strong return on their
investment,” said Dan Caruso, chairman and CEO at Zayo.

“Both Scott and Yancey are seasoned leaders of multiple successful
international tech companies. Scott has a strong track record of
leadership, which extends to global business strategy, operational
execution and company culture. Yancey has helped steer two Silicon
Valley-like companies to impressive growth and successful IPOs. They
have the complementary skills and insight that are relevant for Zayo’s
current stage of growth,” added Caruso.
