DigiPlex appoints new manager for Stockholm facility
DigiPlex has appointed Tommy Wahledow as the new operations manager for its Stockholm data center on the back of significant client growth and opportunity at the site.
The data centre, which houses Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and ZealiD among others, is located closed to Arlanda and runs on electricity from 100% renewable energy. Covering 26,000 m² it has up to 40 MW capacity.
Halvor Bjerke, COO DigiPlex, said: "We are very pleased to welcome Tommy to the DigiPlex family. This is a vital role as we continue to build on current growth and look to our next phase of development. Our Stockholm site is growing fast and is a key element of our offer to both hyperscaler and enterprise customers. Attracting someone of Tommy's calibre to lead operations here is both testament to the power and reputation of DigiPlex in the industry, and indicative of our ambition. I very much look forward to working with Tommy."
With more than 30 years' experience Wahledow was previously head of data centre services, global at TietoEVRY, managing the firm's own data centres and relationships with colocation providers. Prior to this, Wahledow worked in a variety of roles, including technical operations and service design and delivery for IT service providers CGI, ncm (nordic computer management) and Capgemini.
DigiPlex, which was acquired by IPI Partners earlier this year, named its new chief development officer in March. It also has facilities in Denmark and Norway.
Commenting on his new role, Wahledow said: "I am excited to join DigiPlex and to work with the amazing people here. Today's fast paced, demanding marketplace requires teamwork to constantly meet customers' evolving needs. The skills and expertise across DigiPlex customer teams are unmatched in the industry and I'm proud to add my own experience to them. Together I know we'll continue to lead the market in delighting our customers."
