Responsible for one of Airedale’s most significant commercial operations, Adrian will be accountable for a worldwide territory (excluding US), leading the data centre cooling arm of the Airedale by Modine business.
Adrian, who has achieved an MBA and Chartered Manager status during his career to date, brings a wealth of data centre knowledge and unwavering leadership skills to his new position. Having worked with Airedale by Modine for 32 years, most recently as Aftermarket Director, he has vast experience of the data centre industry, both at a hands-on and strategic level. Reporting in to Adrian will be Airedale’s established data centre focussed engineering, project management and commercial teams.
Replacing Adrian as Aftermarket Director will be John Board, who recently joined the company as Service Manager and has already impressed with his passion, knowledge and commitment. John also has a wealth of business critical cooling experience and holds an accreditation in Data Centre Management and Operations from The Uptime Institute. He will work closely with Adrian during a transition period to ensure service continuity for clients.
Adrian will work alongside Airedale’s existing business unit directors, focussed around Airedale’s strategic customer segments, to continue to accelerate Airedale’s ambitious growth strategy. These are Rob Bedard, who leads the Cloud Services division in the US, Jonathan Jones, who leads the Commercial and Industrial Sector for the UK, and Asim Ansari, who leads the Enterprise, Telecoms, Edge and International Channel Sales division. All four business unit leaders report into Vice President Jonas Caino.
