AMSTERDAM 19 October 2010 - Interxion, a leading European operator of carrier-neutral data centres, has appointed Peter Cladingbowl as Senior Vice President Engineering & Operations Support.
In the newly expanded role, he will oversee the exacting standards-based design, build, operation and ongoing maintenance of Interxion’s 28 European data centres, and the continuing development of the company’s pan-European footprint and services.
Peter brings extensive experience to the new role, with a particularly deep knowledge of the carrier industry. Before joining Interxion, he worked with Global Crossing, where he was Vice President IT EMEA and then Vice President Operations, EMEA. In addition to eleven years of experience in the telecoms industry, Peter has spent six years in manufacturing and supply chain management and four years in the offshore oil industry. He is a graduate in engineering from the University of Cape Town.
“We believe that Interxion provides the best-connected environment of any data centre operator in Europe, and Peter’s background in the carrier industry will give us a further edge in delivering enhanced services to the enormously important carrier segment,” said Interxion CEO David Ruberg. “In addition, his track record on standards, quality and customer-focused initiatives makes him an excellent fit for Interxion as we provide new added-value services for our customers and expand our equipped space to keep ahead of demand.” “I am joining Interxion at perhaps the most exciting phase of the company’s history and relish the challenge this presents,” said Cladingbowl. “The company has Europe’s widest-reaching data centre footprint, an exceptionally experienced team, and a track record in efficient, standards-based operation, which is second to none. My main challenge will be to build on that tradition of excellence and enhance it wherever possible.”
