CyrusOne announces triple European leadership appointment


CyrusOne (NASDAQ:CONE) has announced a trio of new appointments in a bid to bolster its European leadership team.

The appointment includes Richard Brandon as Senior Director of European Design and Construction, Graham Goldsmith as Customer Implementation Manager, and John Quirie as Senior Data Centre Construction Manager.

Brandon joins CyrusOne from Structure Tone where he was formerly Director of Mission Critical for the international business.

He will be responsible for the management of European design and construction across the life cycle of all development projects.

“I am thrilled to join CyrusOne. Having spent my career working across the spectrum of the data centre industry - providing consultancy advice at CBRE, running a pan-European construction programme for Digital Realty, and delivering mission-critical projects for a wide variety of enterprise, cloud and colocation customers as a main contractor at Structure Tone, I’m excited to now work alongside this experienced team to deliver the outstanding services and facilities customers have come to expect from CyrusOne,” said Brandon.

Goldsmith joins CyrusOne as Customer Implementation Manager from JPMorgan Chase (JPMC), where he was responsible for executing the data centre strategy for JPMC Corporate Investment Bank.

The company said he will lead and organise internal and external resources to manage complex customer installations.

Quirie joins CyrusOne from Wayss und Freytag Ingenieurbau AG as Senior Data Centre Construction Manager.

He will oversee the design, construction, and commissioning of new construction, including overall project management with an emphasis on mission-critical electrical and mechanical systems.

“This is an exciting time for CyrusOne in Europe. As a heavily client-focused company, we work hard to meet our cloud customers’ unique needs,” said Matt Pullen, EVP and Managing Director, Europe.

“This, coupled with our growth and core focus on designing sustainable energy-efficient new buildings, requires an experienced and agile design and construction delivery team. I am delighted to welcome these three senior leaders to CyrusOne.”
