Data Center Business Development Manager
Bernie Oegema: Bernie is an Electrical Engineer that has a long track record working in the data center world with various manufacturers. Prior to joining Siemens he worked at IBM in their data center design/build team and widened his experience to include controls and mechanical systems in the upgrade and new construction of data centers from high performance computing to enterprise to large colocation facilities. He has seen the industry evolve from year-round AC operation to more efficient cooling designs and increased use of free-cooling and the current trend to recover and reuse that waste heat. Bernie joined Siemens to employ new ways to use emerging technologies to improve the efficiency of data center operations while maintaining the highest levels of reliability and flexibility demanded of mission critical facilities.
