EkkoSense today announced a new appointment to its senior team.

The M&E capacity planning, monitoring, and simulation specialist has brought in data centre business development authority Adrian Barker to take on the role of key account director.

Barker comes to EkkoSense from global critical infrastructure solutions company Vertiv where he held the role of senior director for business development, responsible for executing the company’s solutions strategy and driving growth across the entire portfolio.

Prior to this, Barker spent seven years with RF Code as part of the team that delivered the company’s first $1m+ account in the EMEA region before serving as RF Code’s general manager for EMEA.

“It’s great that senior data centre sector sales leaders such as Adrian are recognising EkkoSense’s distinctive value, and are excited about the opportunity to drive the company’s next major strategic growth phase,” says EkkoSense CEO Dean Boyle.

“Adrian brings a proven track record of business development growth with critical infrastructure solutions providers such as Vertiv and RF Code, and we look forward to him continuing his track record of success with EkkoSense.”

Boyle says Barker will be tasked with providing key account management and sales leadership to EkkoSense’s UK and international operations. He will also be a large cog in the drive to develop the company’s relationships with key partners like CBRE, where EkkoSense is a global PSA supplier. Adrian will report directly to EkkoSense CEO Dean Boyle.

“EkkoSense is growing rapidly, providing powerful software-driven thermal optimisation solutions for critical live environments, and I’m excited to be joining the business at such an important stage in its development,” says Barker.

“Using our real-time EkkoSoft Critical software, organisations can now monitor, manage and maximise their data centre performance at a fraction of the cost of traditional DCIM and CFD platforms, and I’m looking forward to taking EkkoSense’s powerfully disruptive proposition to an even broader range of direct clients and channel partnerships.”
