Chief Development Officer, AFRICA DATA CENTRES

As the Director Development at Africa Data Centres, Xavier oversees the strategic planning, construction and engineering of our data centre facilities.  

Xavier plays a pivotal role in ensuring we keep pace with the growing demand for world-class data centre services across Africa, ensuring there is sufficient rack space to meet the current and future needs of our customers. 

As well as leading the design and build of new data centre projects, Xavier also manages the expansions of our current data centre facilities – and most crucially, makes sure there is no disruption to service during refurbishment. 

Xavier joined Africa Data Centres in 2018 and has over 10 years’ experience in the industry. Previously, he led various development projects across the EMEA region with Equinix and has worked as a business analyst for Accenture. 

Xavier read for a Master’s Degree in Electromechanical Engineering from the University of Liege and an Executive MBA from HEC Paris.
