Pulsant appoints new Chief Commercial Officer

UK-based digital edge infrastructure provider Pulsant has made a move to power its growth strategy with the appointment of Mark Turner as its new Chief Commercial Officer (CCO).

In his new role, Mark will lead the sales, commercial, and solution consulting teams at Pulsant, spearheading initiatives that accelerate the significant momentum in hybrid cloud and edge computing built up by the company in 2022.

Mark has a track record in senior management roles across cloud, infrastructure, and data centres, at Claranet, T-Systems International, and MCI. He has led sales and commercial go-to-market strategies in infrastructure, data centres, and cloud – boosting adoption of rapidly evolving technology to help customers maximise digital transformation.

Mark said, “I’m very excited to be joining Pulsant at a time when UK demand for edge computing, hybrid cloud services, and colocation is taking off in a big way. The edge computing opportunity is huge. Pulsant has the geographical spread and range of partnerships to deliver hybrid services to customers’ front doors, providing them with the agility and broad spectrum of capabilities they want, from a brand they can trust. I’m going to collaborate with the many highly talented people at Pulsant to drive growth even further and develop the range of opportunities in a highly dynamic market.”

Rob Coupland, Pulsant CEO added, “Mark has a huge amount of experience he will use to capture the massive edge opportunity and build on our successes. I’m looking forward to the new energy and insight he will bring to this role that encompasses sales and related technical solutions teams, enabling us to bring an end-to-end focus to client opportunities delivered through our network of highly connected edge data centres and hybrid cloud platform.”

Mark has more than 20 years of experience leading teams in sales and delivery across IT services, cloud, and managed services. At Claranet he established an entirely new go-to-market strategy around the public cloud, achieving sixfold top-line growth by developing a new concept and team, driven by a focus on alliances and partners.

Mark’s appointment follows Ben Cranham’s appointment as Chief Operating Officer in October and a series of strategic investments in Pulsant’s edge platform, including the acquisition of two data centres in Manchester and Reading and most recently the launch of Pulsant Cloud and PulsantFlex.
