ISG’s new CEO makes first key appointment


Damian (pictured) heads up a specialist team that has delivered over £1bn, or over three million square feet, of data centre projects across continental Europe in the past five years. ISG is currently delivering a number of complex and highly engineered construction projects in Belgium, Finland and the Netherlands, giving Damian the perfect springboard to focus on growing market share in the technology, science and health sectors.

Damian brings over 20 years’ experience working across highly engineered facilities for customers in the energy, technology, science and healthcare sectors. Prior to his new appointment, Damian led the delivery of one of ISG’s largest data centre projects in the Nordics, which at its peak saw over 1,200 operatives working simultaneously on site.

Paul Cossell, ISG’s CEO, commented, ‘Our expertise in successfully delivering technically advanced and complex built environments gives ISG a highly compelling international offer, and Damian’s appointment emphasises our focus and ambition in the European arena. With the global data centre market predicted to grow at over 19 per cent per year to 2020, this is a core market for our business and one where we are already acknowledged as a world leading specialist.’

Damian Farr added, ‘We have a hugely talented and wide ranging team of industry professionals that constantly strive to challenge what is possible, both from a technical and delivery perspective. Innovation and creativity really find a home within the complex engineering services space, and we have a fantastic interdisciplinary team in our continental Europe business, that consistently pushes the boundaries to create an unbeatable experience for our customers.’
