To answer increased market interest and customer inflow and as a part of its continued
growth, DigiPlex, the Nordic leader in innovative and sustainable data centres, has today
announced a series of executive leadership changes, effective immediately.
”At DigiPlex we are continuously looking for ways to improve our business and to strengthen the
position of leadership we hold in our market. As part of our growth strategy we take constant steps
to recalibrate and optimise our organisation. Today’s announcements represent instrumental
steps we are taking to drive the next phase of DigiPlex’s growth”, says Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO at
Halvor Bjerke, formerly Operations Director Norway, has been appointed Head of
Operations and will lead DigiPlex’s award-winning operation teams across all
company sites. Halvor joined DigiPlex in August 2017, bringing with him a wealth of
experience from the IT Services, data centre and cloud industry, having previously
held senior leadership roles at Cap Gemini, Amedia Technology & DNB. Directly
before joining DigiPlex he held responsibility for IBM’s Cloud Services in Norway as
Data Centre manager for IBM Cloud.
DigiPlex also announced that Fredrik Jansson will, in addition to his current role as
Chief Marketing & Communications Officer, also become the company’s first Chief
Strategy Officer. In his new position, Fredrik is responsible for defining and
overseeing all aspects of the company’s corporate strategy and go-to-market
positioning. Fredrik joined DigiPlex in October 2016, and under his leadership
DigiPlex has received recognition for a rapid marketing and communications
transformation, earning finalists positions in several industry awards including
“Marketing Team of the Year” and “Communications Team of the Year”. Fredrik joined
DigiPlex from Tata Consultancy Services where he served as Chief Brand Officer for
21 European markets.
Other changes in the Executive Leadership include Dan Oldham, DigiPlex Chief Operating
Officer, who in addition to further developing and ensuring the highest quality and service delivery
for key clients, now will also take on the responsibility of further professionalising the company’s
pre-sales efforts. Daniel Joyce, the company’s Chief Development Officer, is assuming increased
coordination responsibilities for the company’s Stockholm site.
DigiPlex aims to set the standard for best practice within the data centre industry and represents
the new generation of data centre suppliers. DigiPlex helps companies maximize savings through
innovation while reducing their carbon footprint and environmental impact. DigiPlex’ data centre is
powered exclusively by sustainable sources of electricity and their sites are some of the greenest
and most energy efficient data centres in the world.
DigiPlex has been the recipient of many of its industry’s top accolades. Most recently, it was
awarded “Data Center Operations Team of the Year – Colo + Cloud” at the 2017 DCD Awards in
December, which capped off a year of significant wins. Insight Success Magazine selected
DigiPlex as its cover story for the world’s “10 Best Performing Data Center Solutions Providers
