DigiPlex has today announced the appointment of Phil Coutts as Chief Development Officer (CDO) tasked with the responsibility of overseeing the ongoing, planned and future development of DigiPlex data center portfolio.

In his new position, Coutts will lead DigiPlex’s team of development experts who together will create facilities for hyperscale and colocation customers. He will further focus on combining safety, quality and sustainability standards with right first-time delivery to meet current demand cycles.

Before joining DigiPlex, Coutts founded and led Mace International Data Center Business operating in Europe’s data center markets including the United Kingdom, Ireland, the Netherlands and Denmark. As such, he is expected to have deep expertise in data center and critical infrastructure design, construction and development.

“DigiPlex is an established leader at the intersection of digitization and environmental developments and so is uniquely well placed to meet the evolving demands of the market,” said Phil Coutts, the new CDO of Digiplex.

“I am delighted to be joining the DigiPlex family at this exciting time to help develop and deliver the sustainable digital infrastructure the global economy needs while guaranteeing the safety, sustainability, quality and on time delivery standards demanded in the modern world.”

This announcement is coming about 3 days after the company appointed Fredrik Jansson as its new Chief Commercial Officer (CCO). Jansson was the Chief Strategy, Marketing and Communications Officer of DigiPlex, and in his new position as CCO, he will head a new commercial unit responsible for all sales and marketing/communications efforts globally.

“At a time when we have significantly grown our portfolio, Phil will play a key role in orchestrating our capabilities and capacity to deliver high quality facilities at speed,” said Wiljar Nesse, CEO of DigiPlex.
