European data centre developer and operator, maincubes, has announced the appointment of Martin Murphy as its new Chief Operating Officer (COO).

Murphy will assume responsibility for internal operations, customer success, and the integration of new sites and capacity within maincubes’ operations.

Maincubes said Murphy’s appointment also aims to strengthen the company’s operational performance and complement the company’s ESG initiatives as it plans for international growth.

“Martin’s appointment to the management board is in line with maincubes’ growth and international strategy and the goal of establishing the company as a premier data centre operator for public, global hyperscale, and cloud users,” said Zahl Limbuwala, Executive Chairman of the Advisory Board at maincubes and Operating Partner at DTCP.

With over 20 years of experience in the data centre industry, maincubes expects Murphy to offer new expertise to the role. 

“There is a huge growth opportunity for maincubes to benefit from the unprecedented tailwinds in the data centre industry and I am looking forward to leveraging my experience to support maincubes’ growth ambitions,” said Murphy.

CEO and Founder of maincubes, Oliver Menzel, said Murphy is recognised globally for his impressive track record.

“With his experience spanning various roles across the data centre industry, Martin brings a wealth of international experience driving efficient operations and development of data centres,” said Menzel.

Murphy has most recently served as President of EMEA at full-lifecycle data centre services provider for data centre companies, Salute Mission Critical. Murphy joined following the acquisition of data centre-focused project management and consulting company, AMS Helix, which Murphy co-founded in 2021 and led as CEO. 

Murphy also previously worked as COO at CBRE Data Centre Solutions responsible for services provided to more than 800 data centres globally. Murphy succeeds Stephan Harren, who served as maincubes’ COO since 2022.
