(The Hosting News) – Upsite Technologies announces today the addition of Jim Fink as the company’s new Chief Technology Officer. The change is a strategic decision to increase the amount of time and resources the company can spend developing new product lines for data center efficiency improvement.
“The addition of Mr. Fink will allow Upsite Technologies to engage in more aggressive product research and development to meet our customers’ needs,” said Ken Sowards, Upsite’s President. Mr. Fink will become responsible for the leadership of the company’s current R&D department beginning today.
Mr. Fink has 17 years of experience in many areas of the mission critical facilities industry. He most recently served as director of MEP design engineering at Thielsch Company in Rhode Island. Mr. Fink previously led business development and engineering teams for American Power Conversion (now Schneider Electric) where he patented and brought to market revolutionary new high density data center cooling systems. He began his career in 1994 serving in the US Navy with a Middle Eastern deployment. This provided a unique operational perspective of mission critical facilities while running a nuclear power plant onboard a US fast attack submarine.
Mr. Fink holds a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering with honors from Union College in New York, and a Masters in Business Administration from University of Rhode Island. He is an active licensed Professional Engineer in Rhode Island.
