8 Solutions, the UK’s leading data centre healthcare company has appointed Mark Knight as Head of Operations.

Specialising in the cleaning and decontamination of critical environments, 8 Solutions services many of the world’s largest organisations, including the majority of the FTSE 100 in the UK. The appointment of a Head of Operations to take responsibility for all aspects of the company’s service delivery through a 50 strong team of highly trained technicians is critical to support the ambitious growth plans of the company. It will further strengthen the company’s commitment to first class service and quality.

Mark has recently completed an 8 Solutions fast-track management training programme which has seen him working throughout the Middle East, including Jeddah, Oman, Riyadh, and Qatar and on a series of special projects with key UK clients. In his new position, Mark will focus on developing and enhancing the company’s response capability, on the further development and training of the technicians and on the introduction of new services into the existing client base.

With over 10 years’ experience in operational management and service delivery, Mark is passionate about bringing greater clarity to all elements of operations. He explains: “8 Solutions operate a close team of technicians who are all security cleared, highly trained specialists, and who are, uniquely in this sector, all employed directly by the company. Our technicians who are the face of the business are well respected in the industry both for their knowledge of the critical environments they work in and for the quality of their work. My role will be to build on that reputation and continue to ensure the highest standards are delivered every time.”
