Schneider Electric has today announced the appointment of Marc Garner as Vice President of its IT Division for the UK. Garner is a 13-year veteran of Schneider Electric having joined the company after graduating from the University of Sunderland with an Honours Degree in Business Administration.
In his new role Garner will be tasked with continuing the success of Schneider Electric’s IT Division, which provides integrated power, cooling and software solutions for data centres, server rooms and Edge Computing installations throughout the UK.
“With major shifts in technology affecting the whole of industry and increasing dependency upon data centres, it’s an exciting time to be joining the IT Division,” said Garner. “Realising the promise of trends such as Cloud, Edge computing and the Internet of Things has major ramifications for the industry, and is driving change in data centre architecture from large hyperscale facilities to smaller, micro data centres at the edge of networks. Each presents unique challenges and opportunities, I’m looking forward to building momentum as Schneider Electric continues to drive innovation and success from the plant room to the white space.”
