Internet host and cloud specialist UKFast has made a number of key appointments and promotions to help manage its growth plans in 2012.
Stuart Coulson takes up the newly-created role of Director of Data Centres, moving from his position as Head of Special Projects for the Manchester hosting firm. His move coincides with the company's acquisition of three sites for the development of 14,000sq ft of data centre space in Manchester, due to go live this summer. Coulson will be responsible for UKFast's ambitious plans to become the largest provider of managed hosting solutions and collocation data centre space in the UK by 2020.
UKFast has also made a number of other key appointments and promotions that support its expansion plans. Darren Taylor has been promoted from Manager to Director of Research and Development, leading the company's commitment to put innovation back on the map in the UK this year.
David Redford-Crowe is a Solicitor who joined the business back in July of last year as its first General Counsel with a specific focus on setting up an in-house legal department and protecting the UKFast brand as it grows in value.
Redford-Crowe, who spent almost ten years at Orange in various senior legal positions, describes the atmosphere at UKFast as similar to that at the electronic communications company when he first joined it almost 15 years ago not least in terms of the passion which is shared by everyone at UKFast in seeking to deliver the best customer experience.
The company is also expanding its Communications team. Ex-business journalist Elizabeth Donevan has been promoted to PR Manager after a year spent with the firm as a features writer. Donevan will manage the company's external content and a growing team of social media experts and copywriters.
