Data Centre Dynamics Awards
Kevin who is a Senior Associate of Waterman Middle East was shortlisted in the ‘Young Mission Critical Engineer of the Year’ category at the 2011 Data Centre Dynamics Awards. The ceremony , which was held in London last month, celebrated another year of challenge and achievement in data centres across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
The future of any industry depends on the quality of the young people it can attract. The data centre industry is no different and the relatively low profile of the data centre as a career choice combined with increasing local shortages of suitably qualified M&E engineering staff places a premium on attracting new blood into the industry. The contenders of this Award to date have achieved a higher client facing profile than their tender years would suggest.
Kevin has specific responsibility for the development of our Data Centre and Mission Critical Facilities business in the Middle Eastern region, and has recently presented at market-leading conferences in Muscat, Dubai and Doha.
The awards dinner was attended by Greg Morgan (MD of Waterman Middle East), Steve Green (Director Waterman Building Services) and Simon Harden (MD Waterman International).
