Schneider appoints Mark Yeeles as new UK & Ireland VP
Mark Yeeles joins Schneider Electric’s Secure Power Division from its UK&I Industrial Automation Business, after delivering a period of sustained growth through its robotics and process automation solutions - an area of the business which he first joined in 2015.
Yeeles succeeds Marc Garner, who now leads the Secure Power Division in Europe for Schneider Electric.
The details of the new appointment
From April 2023, Mark Yeeles will be tasked with driving profitable growth by working with Schneider Electric’s data centre customers, end-users and IT channel partners to address the challenges associated with data centre sustainability, efficiency, energy security and resilience.
He will also work directly across the company’s OT and electrical channels, including its electrical contractors, panel builders and distributors, to diversify the Secure Power businesses’ EcoStruxure for Data Centres hardware, software and services offerings, and fast-track growth among its partner base.
In his new role, Mark will also deliver the company’s vision for Electricity 4.0 - helping customers harness the power of electrification and digitalisation to reduce CO2 emissions, lower energy consumption, and embrace grid-ready technologies to ensure that data centres can become part of a sustainable, resilient energy system.
“I’m honoured to have been appointed the new VP for the Secure Power division in the UK and Ireland, and look forward to working with our customers to solve their challenges in the wake of the energy crisis,” Yeeles commented.
“I believe that ecosystem collaboration is vital to help this sector address its environmental impact, and that by harnessing the power of software and digitalisation to unlock new efficiencies and minimise energy waste, we will ensure data centres play a key role in a more resilient and sustainable future.”
“I’m delighted to name Mark Yeeles my successor for the UK and Ireland and believe both his appointment and his customer-first approach will be essential as we continue to grow our engagement and relationships with owners, operators, and partners across this mission-critical sector,” Garner added.
