Cannon Technologies recently appointed Carl Cullop to the position of chief executive officer (CEO) of the company’s American operation, Cannon T4 Inc. “Cullop is tasked with enhancing the company’s presence, market penetration and sales, and he will spearhead initiatives that will drive demand for the award-winning T4 Data Center Solutions range,” the company said when announcing the appointment. Data center systems offered by Cannon T4 include the Data Center Manager, the Mini Data Center and the Cold Aisle Cocooning System. The company describes them as “solutions that lead the way in making mission-critical facilities more robust, resilient and energy efficient.”
Cullop will be based at Cannon T4’s Northern Virginia headquarters and according to the company, one of his first jobs will be “to complement his existing team with a series of new appointments across a variety of roles.” Additionally, Cullop will “look to develop a full manufacturing site in order to offer shorter lead times and a level of service similar to that enjoyed by customers in Europe.” On a medium-term basis, Cullop also is tasked with expanding Cannon T4’s operations into Canada and Mexico.
