Schneider Electric has appointed Marc Garner as the new regional Senior Vice President of its Secure Power Division in Europe.
Garner has been at Schneider Electric since joining its graduate programme in 2005, and has held several leadership positions within the organisation. His most recent role was as VP Secure Power Division in the UK and Ireland, where he was responsible for heading up the company’s first Major Pursuits team alongside its data centre and critical power arms.
According to Schneider Electric, Garner will now lead its Secure Power Division across Europe, working with country and zone leaders in CEEI, DACH, France, Iberia, Ireland, Italy and the UK to meet the data centre industry’s sustainability ambitions.
As Senior VP, Garner will be responsible for Schneider Electric’s physical infrastructure solutions, APC, as well as its single and three-phase uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), edge computing solutions and its transactional business across Europe.
“I’m delighted to be appointed as SVP for the Secure Power Division in Europe and look forward to working with our customers across the region to fulfil our mission of being their digital partner for sustainability and efficiency,” said Garner.
“I believe that digitalisation and electrification are the key vectors for decarbonisation, and that our company’s vision for Electricity 4.0 will be vital to help the data centre sector transition from a consumer to a prosumer to enable greater resilience of the grid.”
