June 16, 2010 by  

Hosting ToolboxAmsterdam – EvoSwitch, the green CO2-neutral IT data center, has appointed Stijn Grove (38) to the position of Sales Manager for EvoSwitch.

“The EvoSwitch product is very strong and highly innovative,” says Grove.  “I am pleased to be starting with an organization like EvoSwitch, which utilizes the most advanced green, energy-saving technologies, while at the same time providing its customers with ‘high density’ IT housing.  This allows EvoSwitch to offer its customers a very secure, technically advanced datacenter for housing their data infrastructure.  EvoSwitch is an ambitious organization with a very high potential for international growth. IT infrastructure outsourcing to external data centers will become much more important in the near future.  EvoSwitch will go through very significant expansion in years to come”

Grove notes: “EvoSwitch is ahead of the pack in terms of data center technology as well as having very low power consumption.  This also means we can offer customers an extremely attractive IT housing proposition in terms of cost.”

Grove plans to restructure the company’s Sales Department in order to ready it for the planned international expansion of EvoSwitch.  “I want the new EvoSwitch Sales department to aim for a unified consulting and sales approach, providing strategic support to meet customer data housing requirements.  Not only do we provide collocation, we give our clients focused attention on a periodic basis with technologically sound answers to their questions regarding security, connectivity, compliance, and the environmentally friendly configuration of data center racks.  Despite our rapid growth, with the current expansion of our Sales and Operations team we are able to provide even more effective service to our EvoSwitch customers.”

Grove, who previously worked for Colt Telecom, Samsung Telecom and Verizon Business, explains why he decided to accept the job with EvoSwitch:  “There are short lines of management at EvoSwitch.  The owners’ offices are at the end of the hall, which means that we can be very decisive and versatile.  I also attach great value to EvoSwitch’s environmentally conscious operations. The company’s decisiveness, green aspect and focus on cost efficiency are very attractive to me.”
