Leading precision liquid cooling technology company Iceotope Technologies Limited has announced the appointment of Nathan Blom as Chief Commercial Officer to lead the company’s strategy for sales growth, including:
- Expansion of its go-to-market strategy with channel partners
- Ongoing transformation of marketing functions
- Increase the value of strategic partnerships within the IT and data center Infrastructure markets
Blom comes to Iceotope from Lenovo, where he led strategy and transformation for North America ISG (Infrastructure Solutions Group). He began his career in IT at HP in 2009, where he managed teams serving the U.S. SMB market and OEM communities across the Americas, including Latin America and Canada.
After leaving HP in 2016, Blom joined Lenovo as Director, North America, OEM and IOT and was given additional responsibility for Strategic Alliances and Software. In 2020, Blom became Chief of Staff to Lenovo’s Global Chief Customer Officer, a position he held for more than two years.
“I’m excited to join Iceotope because this company’s liquid cooling technology can radically transform the industry by saving 30–40% of the wasted electricity normally used for air or water cooling,” Blom said of his move to Iceotope.
“Precision liquid cooling enables CPUs, GPUs and memory devices to operate at maximum speeds for higher productivity and processing times; increased data center rack density; and a fully scalable approach to cooling while remaining fully serviceable in the same format equipment racks used throughout the IT industry,” Blom continued. “Unlike air cooled environments, servers are housed in environmentally sealed containers, so air quality and temperature are no longer a barrier to performance, and carbon footprint can be reduced in a meaningful way.”
“We’re delighted to welcome Nathan Blom to the Iceotope senior management team,” said David Craig, CEO of Iceotope Technologies. “He brings with him extensive cross-industry experience working for world-leading technology companies, as well as with both channel partners and end customers of all sizes.”
“Seeing the industry from both the IT and infrastructure side, and joining Iceotope at a major inflection point for the industry, Nathan has a great understanding of the challenges facing the move towards sustainability as well as enthusiasm for technologies like Iceotope’s with an untapped capability to remove megatons of carbon from data center operations,” Craig said.
