HYDRO66 APPOINTS EXPERIENCED SALES AND MARKETING LEADERSHIP IN BENELUX AND FRANCE REGION
Hydro66 Holdings Corp. has enhanced its sales and marketing capability in Belgium, the Netherlands, France and the wider Western Europe region.
Patrick Smidts has been appointed as commercial director at innovative and fast-growing Swedish co-location data centre operator Hydro66. Mr. Smidts will be responsible for further developing co-location services and products to meet client demand. Veerle T'jampens will lead marketing activity for Hydro66 throughout the region, including the Nordics, and will drive market awareness of the unique attributes Hydro66 brings to Enterprise data centre users.
"Patrick has a great combination of sales development skills and business leadership that fit our team perfectly. He has vast experience in Benelux and China in the telecoms and data centre sector. Bringing his network of Western Europe Enterprise contacts to Hydro66 will accelerate our sales plan for 2019 and into 2020," says Anne Graf, chief executive officer of Hydro66.
"Hydro66 has a great profile in the industry and I look forward to discussing mutual opportunities with the Enterprise community in Western Europe. The awards they have won bring credibility and they continue to innovate at a rapid rate. Their latest innovation brings their data centre into compliance with Open Compute project co-location facility standards -- that is a really timely message to go market with," stated Mr. Smidts.
Ms. T'jampens commented: "Hydro66 have all the required components for Enterprise to win financially and environmentally when they make smart choices about co-location data centres. In a cloud migration and digitalization landscape, companies in the EU can win big by careful forward thinking and astute technical choices. I am really looking forward to building out this message. Positive disruption really defines Hydro66 and our co-location data centre has global recognition from both a technical and business perspective. The entire industry needs to modernize with new business models -- it's an exciting challenge."
The cool Nordic climate and availability of true green power delivered at very low cost on high-stability industrial power grids has been recognized for some time by hyperscale builders such as Facebook and Microsoft.
The Nordics also bring universal fibre coverage and rapid connections to Germany, Amsterdam, Russia and the Far East.
The ultralow price of green electricity and the unique utility redundancy at the site in Boden has generated considerable interest, especially from companies in Western Europe that have major challenges with high electricity prices and delivering compute at scale.
