FiberSense, a leading infrastructure sensing and monitoring company, is proud to announce the appointment of Mark Sokol to its Board of Directors as a Non-Executive Director.
Sokol is the former Senior Director of Infrastructure at Google, where he was directly responsible for Google’s global infrastructure rollout. Sokol is the current CTO of AtlasEdge, a leading European provider of edge based data center digital infrastructure services.
“An international infrastructure leadership background like Mark’s is highly sought after and it’s a huge vote of confidence in our strategy and forward plans that he has agreed to come on board,” said FiberSense Founder and CEO Mark Englund. “The timing of this appointment couldn’t be more opportune as we now move to our next phase of ramping up growth.”
Sokol said he has been tracking FiberSense’s progress closely.
“FiberSense’s proprietary sensing and monitoring tech is head and shoulders above their competitors, and they are now leading the market in forging new revenue streams from existing fiber optic assets,” Sokol said. “I am delighted to join the Board and support their ambitious growth plans.”
Fellow FiberSense Co-Chair Bevan Slattery is also very pleased with Sokol’s knowledge of the global infrastructure market – something he says will be crucial during FiberSense’s next phases of expansion.
“Mark brings new insights to our Board table not just related to his Google infrastructure deployment experience, but also from his recent focus and attention on European and African digital infrastructure markets,” Slattery said. “Our expansion already has footholds in places like the UK, France and South Africa and now with this new contribution, Mark will be an important part of our next steps forward in these regions.”
FiberSense services monitor underground assets and have been activated across fiber networks in Europe, the Americas, Australia and across subsea cables linking major continents this year alone. FiberSense recently won The ACOMM Awards 2022 Innovation SME category for its DigitalAsset product.
