CBRE today solidified its commitment to the Nordics with the announcement of a new director to take the reins.

CBRE asserts Kemlin’s appointment is a strategic investment and demonstrates the company’s dedication to current and future cloud, hyperscale, and colocation clients interested in operating in the Nordics.

“Isabelle’s appointment as Nordics Business Unit Director solidifies our commitment to growing talented and skilled data centre expert teams in the Nordics, who in turn will support our customers to provide the safest, most secure and resilient data centres in the Nordics,” says CBRE Data Centre Solutions president John Dunstan.

“I am fully committed to the challenge of driving rapid growth and at the same time securing our high-quality delivery,” says Kemlin.

“We need to consider local adaptation, and at the same time utilise the power of our world leading global knowledge and processes, as well as securing our competences and culture as the highest of CBRE standards.”

Before her time at CBRE, Kemlin worked as key account executive and regional director for Veolia, while earlier holding the role of CEO within the mining business. Kemlin has a MSc. In Industrial Engineering and Management from Chalmers University of Technology.
