Schneider Electric has appointed Mark Yeeles as the new Vice President of its Secure Power division in the UK and Ireland. 

Yeeles joins the Secure Power division from Schneider Electric’s Industrial Automation business, where he was responsible for delivering a sustained period of growth through its robotics and process automation solutions. 

From April 2023, Mark Yeeles will be tasked with driving profitable growth by working with Schneider Electric’s data centre customers, end-users and IT channel partners to address the challenges associated with data centre sustainability, efficiency, energy security and resilience. He will also work directly across the company’s OT and electrical channels, including its electrical contractors, panel builders and distributors, to diversify the Secure Power businesses’ EcoStruxure for Data Centres hardware, software and services offerings, and fast-track growth among its partner base.

There will be big shoes to fill for Yeeles, as he takes on the role from outgoing VP Marc Garner, who was recently appointed as the Senior Vice President for Schneider Electric’s Secure Power division across Europe

Commenting on the appointment, Marc Garner, noted, “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.”

Mark Yeeles added, “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.

“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.”
