CapMan Infra’s data centre platform appoints Philippe Rechsteiner as CFO

CapMan Infra’s data centre platform appoints Philippe Rechsteiner as its CFO. The platform, currently consisting of two companies, Serverius and Fuzion (where the transaction is expected to close late October), is looking to grow to become a leading northern European data centre platform providing European-wide connectivity. Philippe joins from technology infrastructure company DataQube where he has served as CFO, before which he was CFO at data centre company Vantage Data Centers.

Philippe Rechsteiner, MBA and M.Sc. (Law)., joins the data centre platform with extensive experience from the data centre and colocation industry. Most recently he served as CFO for DataQube, a technology infrastructure company focused on data centre and colocation landscapes, prior to which he was CFO for datacentre company Vantage Data Centers’ European business. At Vantage Data Centers, originally named Etix, Philippe played a significant role in implementing a new growth strategy and restructuring efforts, transforming the company into a profitable business. The company was consequently acquired by Vantage through a transaction in which Philippe was involved. Philippe will start in his new role immediately.

“I am excited to join CapMan Infra’s data centre platform. This is a very inspiring industry to be involved in, and one which I know very well. This platform holds substantial opportunities for growth, and I look forward to working together with CapMan Infra and the companies involved on developing the platform to its full potential”, says Philippe Rechsteiner.

“This is an important step in building our data centre platform. Philippe will play a key role as we gear up our platform to create value through synergies on commercial, technical, and financial aspects with a strong focus on sustainability. With his in-depth industry experience, entrepreneurial drive, and expertise in business development, Philippe will be a significant asset to our platform,” shares Harri Halonen, Partner at CapMan Infra.
