EkkoSense, a leading M&E capacity planning, monitoring and simulation specialist for critical live environments, has appointed data centre sector business development leader, Adrian Barker, as its Key Account Director.
Barker joins EkkoSense from global critical infrastructure solutions firm, Vertiv, where, as Senior Director for Business Development, he was responsible for executing the company’s solutions strategy and driving growth across the entire Vertiv portfolio. Before that, he spent seven years with RF Code, building the team that delivered the company’s first US$1m+ account in the EMEA region before serving as RF Code’s General Manager for EMEA.
In his new role, Barker will be responsible for providing key account management and sales leadership to EkkoSense’s UK and international operations. He will also be instrumental in developing the company’s relationship with key partners such as CBRE, where EkkoSense is a global PSA supplier. Barker will report directly to EkkoSense CEO, Dean Boyle.
“EkkoSense is growing rapidly, providing powerful software-driven thermal optimisation solutions for critical live environments and I’m excited to be joining the business at such an important stage in its development,” said Adrian Barker. “Using our real-time EkkoSoft critical software, organisations can now monitor, manage and maximise their data centre performance at a fraction of the cost of traditional DCIM and CFD platforms, and I’m looking forward to taking EkkoSense’s powerfully disruptive proposition to an even broader range of direct clients and channel partnerships.”
“It’s great that senior data centre sector sales leaders such as Barker are recognising EkkoSense’s distinctive value and are excited about the opportunity to drive the company’s next major strategic growth phase,” added Dean Boyle. “Adrian brings a proven track record of business development growth with critical infrastructure solutions providers such as Vertiv and RF Code, and we look forward to him continuing his track record of success with EkkoSense.”Click below to share this article
