New York, NY (May 13, 2024) — Edged Energy, the fast-growing sustainable data center infrastructure company, is pleased to welcome industry veteran Arjan de Haan as Director of Sales for Europe. The seasoned sales executive brings nearly 25 years of business development experience and will support the team’s rapid global expansion. Edged is currently building nearly a dozen ultra-efficient, AI-ready data centers with waterless cooling across Europe and North America and has a gigawatt-scale project pipeline in the works. In his role as Director of Sales, de Haan will partner with hyperscale, cloud and enterprise clients looking to expand their presence in the dynamic European market.

“We are excited to welcome Arjan, an experienced sales professional with a solution-oriented approach and proven ability to solve complex infrastructure requirements and deliver results.

“I was immediately drawn to Edged by the team’s truly unique and innovative approach to sustainability. Their highly differentiated platform delivers top-tier performance built to meet the growing demands of AI and advanced computing, while also dramatically reducing energy usage and eliminating water for cooling. Edged is changing what is possible in the industry, and I am thrilled to join the team and help our clients meet and exceed their aggressive sustainability goals,” said de Haan.
