Malcolm Howe named DCD EMEA Business Leader of the Year 2016 Share this article

Malcolm Howe, Critical Systems Partner, was named Business Leader of the Year at the Data Centre Dynamics EMEA gala awards dinner held at London Hilton on Park Lane on Wednesday 7 December. 

This Award recognises Malcolm’s work over the past 6 years with leading equipment suppliers and data centre developers to drive the introduction of refrigeration free cooling technologies for the cooling of data centres.

Malcolm worked with Excool on validation of their Product Innovation winning IAC unit design, Facebook on their award-winning Luleå projects, and Digital Realty on their Profile Park project in Dublin. Malcolm has also worked on the recently opened Telehouse data centre in London, the first in the world high rise indirect air cooled data centre which offers a future of low PUE air cooled data centres in urban locations hitherto not thought possible.

Cundall’s Chairman, David Dryden “This award is a thoroughly deserved accolade to Malcolm’s relentless pursuit of the most effective ways to drive adoption of sustainable data centre cooling systems. His ingenuity is evidenced by the now widespread use of refrigerant free air cooling in colocation facilities and not just by bespoke cloud providers. Malcolm’s achievement aptly reflects Cundall’s ethos of putting sustainability at the heart of all that it does.”

The DCD’s EMEA Awards are part of a unique global series that provides worldwide recognition to outstanding individuals, teams and projects. In this complex and competitive market, there can be few greater accolades than to be awarded one of these “Oscars”, which are bestowed only through the rigorous judging of an independent panel of industry experts. No external nominations are accepted and there are no finalists.
