Former HPE engineering head joins Green Revolution Cooling

Aug. 5, 2021
Former Hewlett Packard Enterprise engineering program manager Mike Montez joins GRC, among the leading providers of data center liquid immersion cooling technology, as Solutions Architect.

Green Revolution Cooling (GRC), a specialist in single-phase liquid immersion cooling technology for data centers, today announced the appointment of Mike Montez to the role of Solutions Architect for Strategic Alliances.

GRC said it will benefit from Montez’s more than thirty years at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) as a solutions architect and systems engineer, where he developed a proven track record of leading engineering sales teams.

Per a GRC statement:

Montez is a dynamic industry expert with in-depth experience in sales, engineering, and presales engineering support. Prior to HPE, he had five years of experience with various reseller channels in sales and pre- and post-sales support, where he developed a strong understanding of product development and go-to-market strategies.

In his new role as solutions architect at GRC, Montez will be responsible for engaging with the company's Strategic Alliance Partners' customers and internal staff to facilitate the migration of customer data center environments from traditional air cooling to liquid immersion cooling.

Additionally, Montez will work with GRC's Strategic Alliance Partners to train, identify, qualify and close new sales opportunities.

“We are thrilled that Mike Montez is joining GRC at this critical time of growth,” commented James Weynand, CRO of GRC. “Mike’s breadth of experience as an engineer and sales specialist will help us strengthen our partnerships within the data center industry, further positioning liquid immersion cooling as the ideal alternative to air-cooled data centers and those requiring high-density deployments.”

At HPE, Montez worked as the liaison between customers, sales teams, and engineering resources, and facilitated development of the company's OEM business strategy. During his tenure, Montez’s roles in the HPE organization included OEM Sales Specialist, Blade Sales Specialist, Systems Engineer, and Solutions Architect.

“I am excited to be joining GRC; and am looking forward to helping implement their solutions throughout data centers across the globe,” said Montez. “I have the skills needed to be able to connect with GRC’s Strategic Alliance Partners to continue solving the problem of energy consumption in data centers.”

Throughout the month of August 2021, GRC, along with Dell, Intel, Vertiv and Mission Critical magazine, is spearheading Liquid Immersion Cooling Awareness Month.

The month-long initiative will increase awareness in the data center community of immersion cooling and its advantages over air-cooled facilities, highlighting the technology’s ability to dramatically reduce the energy consumption of today’s data centers while enabling deployment of ever-increasing densities.

Throughout the month of August, GRC and its partners will conduct educational sessions with end users, server manufacturers, and other data center stakeholders to discuss the efficiencies, sustainability benefits, and CapEx/OpEx savings enabled by liquid immersion cooling.
