He has the depth of industry experience and appreciates how our evolving product-set and services differentiate Kao from our peers.”

He added: “Spencer brings mentoring capabilities, which will add a further dimension to our sales and marketing teams. As we continue with the next phase of the campus development, his guidance will be crucial to our plans for the foreseeable future.”

Lamb said: “Kao Data provides customers with the ability to scale quickly at a time where demand for data, resilient power and energy efficient data centre space is at an all time high. With our abilities to service HPC and AI applications, and close proximity to the UK financial, pharmaceutical and life sciences industries, Kao is one of the most successful and disruptive new companies to join a maturing market.”

Recently, Kao Data signed a customer contract with EMBL-EBI, the international research infrastructure and global leader in the storage analysis and dissemination of large biological data sets. This was a key development in Kao Data’s strategic goal to become a leading provider of compute capability to the UK’s Life Science community.
