DigiPlex bolsters its Nordic team with new recruits

13 May 2019

DigiPlex has opted to further invest in its Nordic operations by expanding its sales team.

The company has managed to acquire several key sales profiles in Sweden, Norway and Denmark. In March Anders E. Hansen started as the new sales director in Denmark, which DigiPlex says is part of the company’s clear ambition to become the market leader also in Denmark, thereby further consolidating its leading position in the Nordic region.

It was only 12 months ago when DigiPlex first established operations in Denmark with a new data centre in central Copenhagen. The recruitment of Hansen as sales director in Denmark, DigiPlex CEO Gisle M. Eckhoff says, is an important part of the company’s continued expansion.

“One component of DigiPlex's success is to work very close to the market and from each customer's specific needs,” says Eckhoff.

“Now we are taking the next step to meet customers in Denmark with full force. We have an explicit growth target and we work actively to establish additional data centers in Denmark.”

Hansen came to DigiPlex from Ezenta where he held the role of Network & Security Business Manager. Prior to this he held several senior sales positions at, among other things, startup company Zibrawireless, Teracom and TDC in Denmark.

In addition to Hansen, DigiPlex has also brought in Rickard Hilmersson – formerly with Equinix and TelecityGroup – as the Nordic Sales Manager with placement in Sweden, and Joachim Kauppi – also formerly Equinix and TelecityGroup – as International Sales Director with placement in Norway.

"We are very pleased to have succeeded in recruiting these strong employees. We are now even more offensive in the market and offer more customers leading data centre solutions in innovation, sustainability and security in the Nordic region,” says Eckhoff.

“It is also strong testimony that we are an attractive employer. DigiPlex has always set the goal of being the most attractive brand in data centres, not only with our customers but also with our employees and potential employees. We are also the Nordic region’s leading brand and certified as ‘A Great Place To Work’.
