GRC (Green Revolution Cooling) has appointed former Dell Technologies VP Workloads and Solutions, and General Manager High Performance Computing, Thierry Pellegrino (pictured) to its board of directors.

Pellegrino is an experienced engineer and business leader and was responsible for leading Dell EMC’s global HPC division.

Earlier this month Pellegrino was appointed Senior Vice President and President of SMART Global Holdings’ (SGH) Specialty Computing business where he will be in charge of the company’s Specialty Computing business.

He utilises his technical knowledge, in areas such as AI, IoT and overall workload optimisation across the enterprise, enabling the computing business that will help to deliver application-specific computing solutions for both on-premises and cloud applications. 

“We are thrilled to welcome Thierry Pellegrino to the GRC Board of Directors,” said Peter Poulin, CEO of GRC.

“With his extensive experience in high-performance computing, engineering, and go-to-market strategy, we know Thierry is a valuable addition to our company as we develop next-generation products and expand into new markets.”

Speaking on his appointment, Pellegrino said that liquid immersion cooling is enabling data centres to efficiently expand and adapt to changing market conditions, including artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and IoT; and GRC is uniquely positioned to solve their cooling needs.

 “This is a wonderful opportunity for me to build on my decades of experience and help shape the strategy and direction for GRC,” he added.

“I’m excited to bring my passion for serving customers to my new role as we work to provide solutions to the changes and growth of the data centre.”

Today’s announcement comes on the heels of GRC being placed on the Essentia Trading Limited (ETL) Zero Carbon Delivery Framework, enabling any UK public sector entity the ability to acquire low- and zero-carbon infrastructure investments, as well as the addition of two new members to its executive team.
