EfficiencyIT has announced its appointment of Steve Henson as its new Senior Data Centre Architect.
Henson joins the company following a 30-year tenure in the data centre industry. He will work collaboratively with EfficiencyIT’s growing customer base to help data centre owners and operators in the enterprise, life science and local government sectors implement power, energy efficiency and cost-saving modernisation programmes.
His experience includes several sales, marketing, account management and engineering roles at several high-profile tech organisations, including APC, Chloride Telecom Systems, Eaton, Power One Energy Systems, Schneider Electric and Vertiv. Henson will also help EfficiencyIT’s customers gain a better understanding of practical application of Uptime Institute Tiers.
Having begun his career as an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) service engineer, Henson’s career has seen him span the length and breadth of mission-critical systems. To date, he has worked directly with enterprise customers as a trusted advisor, completing complex power, plant and engineering installations and implementing advanced Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software solutions that reduce stranded capacity, lower costs and reduce carbon emissions.
Henson said: “One of the primary reasons for joining EfficiencyIT was the opportunity to enhance and develop my expertise, while working directly with enterprise customers to solve mission-critical pain points.”
