Wholesale managed services provider, Verb DC, has hired Damien Wilde as it new CEO.
Wilde takes on the top post from Chris Clifford, who is moving into special projects involving hands-on research and development.
Wilde is also general manager of commercial property developer, Henry Kendall Group, as well as being the owner and a major shareholder of Verb.
“Business parks and information technology are synonymous. They are both vital for any business to operate, so I looked at how we can bring the two together,” Wilde said in a statement.
“Once we had chosen the first location, we looked at how we could build a data centre service, built around agility, resilience and value-added services.”
“To deliver a proper IaaS service you firstly need to have a well-built and purpose-designed building to house it in. So, in that respect, we see the Henry Kendall connection as being a vital cog in the overall structure of a properly functioning data center delivering these services.”
Outgoing CEO, Chris Clifford, said the new arrangement works well with his focus now on strategic projects and not on the day-to-day operations.
”My strength is in design and architecture of datacentres. Now that the Verb DC is built and running, I am handing it over to the business to manage daily operations and grow the business” Clifford said.
Last month, Verb acquired cloud aggregator and distributor, InfraServe for an undisclosed sum.
InfraServe was renamed as Verb Distribution and founder, Roy Pater will joined the company as its group sales director.
