June 9, 2016 | By Business Wire News


ISG’s new CEO, Paul Cossell, has announced his first key appointment as Damian Farr is promoted to the newly created role of managing director for the company’s Engineering Services business across Europe.

Damian heads up a specialist team that has delivered over £1 billion, or over three million sq ft, of data center projects across continental Europe in the past five years. ISG is currently delivering a number of complex and highly-engineered construction projects in Belgium, Finland and the Netherlands, giving Damian the perfect springboard to focus on growing market share in the technology, science and health sectors.

Damian brings over 20 years’ experience working across highly-engineered facilities for customers in the energy, technology, science and healthcare sectors. Prior to his new appointment, Damian led the delivery of one of ISG’s largest data center projects in the Nordics, which at its peak saw over 1,200 operatives working simultaneously on site.

Paul Cossell, ISG’s CEO, commented: “Our expertise successfully delivering technically advanced and complex built environments gives ISG a highly compelling international offer, and Damian’s appointment emphasises our focus and ambitions in the European arena. With the global data center market predicted to grow at over 19 per cent per year to 2020, this is a core market for our business and one where we are already acknowledged as a world-leading specialist.”

Damian Farr added: “We have a hugely talented and wide-ranging team of industry professionals that constantly strive to challenge what is possible, both from a technical and delivery perspective. Innovation and creativity really find a home within the complex engineering services space, and we have a fantastic interdisciplinary team in the continental Europe business, that consistently pushes the boundaries to create an unbeatable experience for our customers.”

ISG Plc is an international construction services company delivering Fit Out, Construction, Engineering Services and Specialist Solutions, operating in 28 countries worldwide. The company works with owners, developers and occupiers in the public and private sector for an extensive range of industries. Today the company has a turnover of around £1.6 billion.
