Colt Data Centre Services appoints Niclas Sanfridsson as new CEO
London, UK, 28 November 2019 – Colt Data Centre Services (DCS)today announced that it has named Niclas Sanfridsson as its new Chief Executive Officer. The move comes as Colt DCS’s current CEO, Detlef Spang, plans to retire at the end of this year after leading the business since its inception as an operationally independent business from the Colt network business in 2015. During his tenure, Spang drove the data centre business and accelerated growth of its Hyperscale footprint enabling Colt DCS to come to realise its vision of becoming the most trusted and customer-centric data centre operator.
As CEO, Sanfridsson will continue to drive the hyperscale footprint of the business as the organisation continues to expand in both new and existing markets. He has a wealth of industry experience, most recent of which was with Pulsant where he spent two years as the company CEO. His previous roles include Managing Director of Equinix in the Nordic region where he was focused on integrating the organisational alignment of Telecity into the Equinix portfolio following the acquisition of the Telecity Group. Prior to that Niclas spent fifteen years with Telecity where he held the position of Managing Director for the Swedish business entity. During his time with Telecity, Niclas spearheaded the organic revenue growth of the business as well as delivering the organisations first hyperscale facility and thus holds extensive experience of running businesses offering data centre and managed IT services.
The change in Leadership will not impact the future strategy of the business which it has executed upon successfully over the last four years. Colt Data Centre Services will remain focused on the development of its Hyperscale portfolio across Europe and Asia as well as driving its Hybrid cloud offering which it offers from it’s edge facilities via its strategic channel partner base. The business remains committed to ramp up its commitment to provide energy-efficient and sustainable data centre solutions for its customers.
Michael Wilens - Chairman - I would like to thank Detlef for his commitment and invaluable contribution in driving the significant expansion of our business forward over the past four years. Detlef has been a pivotal driving force in the transformation of the Colt Data Centre business becoming a major Hyperscale data centre provider across Europe and the APAC and wish him all the best for the future. We are confident that with almost 20 years of experience in running data centre businesses Niclas will lead Colt DCS into its next phase of growth and build further upon the customer success that we have seen in satisfying the requirements of our customers across the globe.

5 reasons, as long as you are a skilled penetration tester (and a nice person) this may be different enough for you. Healthy package for the right talents- before you ask up to 95k+ (depending on skillset). Yes permanent only.
