Schneider Electric has announced the appointment of Mark Yeeles as the new Vice President of its Secure Power division in the UK and Ireland.
Yeeles will succeed Marc Garner, who will now lead the Secure Power Division in Europe. He will be working with Schneider’s data centre and IT channel partners to address the challenges associated with data centre sustainability, efficiency, energy security and resilience.
“I’m honoured to have been appointed the new VP for the Secure Power division in the UK and Ireland, and look forward to working with our customers to solve their challenges in the wake of the energy crisis,” said Yeeles.
“I believe that ecosystem collaboration is vital to help this sector address its environmental impact, and that by harnessing the power of software and digitalisation to unlock new efficiencies and minimise energy waste, we will ensure data centres play a key role in a more resilient and sustainable future.”
Garner commented, “I’m delighted to name Mark Yeeles my successor for the UK and Ireland and believe both his appointment and his customer-first approach will be essential as we continue to grow our engagement and relationships with owners, operators, and partners across this mission-critical sector.”
Yeeles comes to his new role after working for Schneider Electric’s Industrial Automation business, which he joined in in 2015.
