Managing Director, Data Centres & Building Services

Alan started with Mercury in 2007 and has worked in various positions including Project Manager and Regional Manager. He is Managing Director for our Data Centres & Building Services Division, which is dedicated to building projects across Ireland, the UK, and Europe. Alan has overall responsibility for the division and ensures that we exceed the client’s expectations.

Alan has worked in the construction industry for over 24 years with experience in sectors such as Data Centres, Healthcare, Retail, Office & Commercial, Manufacturing, and Residential. Over the past 12 years he has been focused on the data centre industry and has been involved in the successful handover of numerous projects in the UK, mainland Europe, and Russia, with many projects completed being for the largest colocation data centre providers in the world. Alan has worked on some of the most complex data centre builds which include fit outs within LIVE operational facilities to green field sites with complex ground conditions such as deep piling systems. All these locations had various challenges from importation, taxation, human resource and cultural, all of which brought exciting dimensions to each project.

Alan began his career in the electrical industry and most recently has studied at INSEAD school of business.
