Three strong women
“This is a great opportunity to showcase the formidable leadership that atNorth is creating. Here we have three strong women that have all played a part in businesses that have aggressively scaled with huge success. We are thrilled to have them support us at this time of continued expansion” said Eva Sóley, Deputy CEO and CFO, atNorth.
atNorth’s expansion has been bolstered by the recent launch of their sixth operational data center in the Nordics, the acquisition of two data centers from Advania in Finland and the announcement of a new 15MW Data Center Campus in Helsinki; which follows the opening of its SWE01 data center in Stockholm in 2022. The company now operates six data centers in strategic locations across three Nordic countries, with a seventh to open in 2024 in Helsinki, Finland .
The considerable expansion of atNorth’s business is supported by its onboarding process, that has seen the recent appointment of a number of high profile industry professionals, including Torborg Chetkovich (Board of Directors), Fredrik Jansson (Chief Strategy and Marketing & Communications Officer), David Sandars (Sales Director for the UK), Pekka Järveläinen (Sales Director for Finland) and Michael Endres (Sales Director for the DACH Region), Stephen Donovan (Chief Development Officer) and Wayne Allen (Sales Director — US).
