“Pete brings proven board-level operational and financial experience to EkkoSense at a time when EkkoSense is aggressively building out its global sales channels and bringing our proven SaaS software capabilities to the US, European and Asia-Pacific markets,” comments EkkoSense’s CEO Dean Boyle. 

“His experience in driving international operational growth and financial management is an anchor appointment for EkkoSense, and will be critical for our team as we deliver on our commitment to helping global organisations monitor, manage and maximize their data centre performance.”
