Schneider’s Yeeles goes from automation to secure power

15 March, 2023

Schneider Electric has appointed Mark Yeeles– currently vice-president of its Industrial Automation business in the UK and Ireland – to be the new vice-president of its Secure Power division in the UK&I, succeeding Marc Garner, who is now leading the Secure Power Division in Europe. A new VP for Industrial Automation in the UK and Ireland has not yet been announced.

Yeeles, who takes up his new role in April, will work with Schneider’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 in its partner base.

“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 says. “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.”

Yeeles joined Schneider’s industrial automation business in 2015, having previously worked for companies including ABB, Rockwell Automation and Omron. During his tenure as VP of the automation business, he has delivered a sustained period of growth.

Schneider Electric’s Secure Power division provides data centre infrastructure for customers using data centres, server rooms and edge computing solutions.
