Amsterdam, The Netherlands – (The Hosting News) – March 31, 2009 – Data Center provider, EvoSwitch, has appointed a new Commercial Director. Eric Boonstra, in his former job, worked as Branche Director with Alfa Delta Compendium. Before that, he headed Siemens Procurement and Logistics.

Mr. Boonstra started his job in the beginning of March and will be responsible for the further international expansion of the EvoSwitch client base. His goal amongst others is to show more companies in the Corporate arena, with Top-500 companies and public organizations in it, what a high tech and ‘green’ data center environment like EvoSwitch can bring them in terms of energy savings, safety and environmental responsibility.

Mr. Boonstra remarked, ”EvoSwitch represents a next generation of data centers which have been constructed in a very efficient, safe and above all a very energy efficient way. The German Federal Environment Ministry has published a report with ‘best-practices’ in the area of green data-center initiatives in Europe, the U.S. and Asia, a report that is based on research by the Borderstep Institute for Innovation and Sustainability. Among the eleven energy-efficient data centers worldwide described in the report is EvoSwitch. I know that Corporate organizations are in need of such facilities with good connections to house their equipment.”

The data center branche is a completely new business environment for Mr. Boonstra, although he sees important overlap with former jobs. Mr. Boonstra added, ”With Siemens I also worked in a very technical oriented culture, whereas with Alpha Delta Compendium I had the management over a business unit that endorses and advises organizations on their procurement also when it comes to procurement of ICT and facility services. I am experienced with procurement for banks, insurers, IT companies and others, with clients such as KLM, Transavia, Schiphol Group, ProRail, Essent and Rabobank. With EvoSwitch I am just on the other side of the procurement spectrum. In this case I deliver the services for companies to outsource their data center activities.”

Mr. Boonstra continued, ”I have lots of experience with procurement and the management of procurement, but sales and marketing and the management of those processes is were my heart goes. The last 4 years I was co-responsible for initiating the CPO-day in The Netherlands, which has become a well known yearly recurring event for procurement professionals. I like a network approach like this, where congenial people are gathered in one platform. With EvoSwitch I will try to maintain this approach and transfer it somehow to the data center experience.”

EvoSwitch is a carrier and a climate-neutral datacenter in the Amsterdam region. The company provides space for organisations that are looking for a professional, reliable and safe environment for outsourcing IT infrastructure and limits its energy consumption to ensure full compensation for CO2 emissions.
