Host in Ireland, a strategic global initiative created to increase awareness of the benefits of hosting digital assets in Ireland, has added data center executive Bernard Geoghegan to its advisory council.
Working in collaboration with Host in Ireland founder and president Garry Connolly, the advisory council furthers the reach and impact of the initiative’s mission through strategies based on its members’ extensive industry experience.
An IT industry veteran with more than three decades of experience, Geoghegan has served in a number of senior executive roles throughout the data center industry with companies including Interxion Deutschland, Digital Realty and Colt Data Centre Services.
Leveraging his expertise within the digital asset hosting community in the U.S., EU and APAC regions, Geoghegan will support Host in Ireland’s mission to increase its partners and expand global market awareness while reinforcing Ireland’s position as a top European location for hosting digital assets.
He joins alongside existing members Ilissa Miller, CEO, iMiller Public Relations; David McAuley, director, Dandelion Innovation; and Diane Hodnett, former founder, CEO and director of Sea Fibre Networks.
“I am very excited to join the Host in Ireland Advisory Council,” said Geoghegan. “After watching Host in Ireland grow from just an idea in 2014 to Winner of the Innovative Data Centre Location award in Monaco in June, when I was asked to get involved, the answer just had to be yes.”
