Winthrop is unique in being the only dedicated datacentre delivery partner providing turnkey solutions to its clients, from design right through construction and on to commissioning and hand-over. Its services include all disciplines, including civil, structural, architectural, mechanical and electrical and protective services.
Winthrop was established in 1995 and is headquartered in Dublin. The company is currently constructing multiple turnkey data centre projects in nine European countries, equating to over 320MW of IT load in flight. Winthrop has recently appointed three non-executive directors to its board and added to its senior leadership team as the company positions itself to build on its international success. Strong revenue growth in the past two years has led to Winthrop’s turnover growing from €560m in 2020 to just under €660m in 2021, with a projected turnover of €1bn for 2022. Revenue growth is coming from a combination of existing and new client mandates
Winthrop management structure
In a restructuring of the executive senior management team, Anne Dooley becomes CEO, Bernard Keane moves to the position of managing director, and Barry English becomes executive director.
Winthrop’s senior leadership team has also been strengthened by the creation and appointment of four operations director roles, taken up by Aiden Fallon, Noel Molloy, Tom O’Hare and Peter O’Flaherty.
Winthrop non-executive directors
Winthrop has also appointed three non-executive directors.
Michael Cawley has joined Winthrop as chairperson. He is a former deputy CEO and CFO of Ryanair and is also a non-executive director of Kingspan, Flutter and Hostelworld, which he also chairs.
Building disaster recovery expert Conor Roche is managing director of Codra Consulting and a non-executive director of BELFOR Europe and Knowcarbon.
Strategic adviser Paul Lynch is a former CFO of Applegreen, a former development director of One51, and is chairperson of Aubren Limited. He is also a non-executive director of both Mincon Group and Brooks Timber.
The new directors join the three existing directors and shareholders – Barry English, Anne Dooley and Bernard Keane, on the company’s board.
These appointments, together with CFO Padraig Carley and CPO Tom O’Leary, mean Winthrop is well-positioned to continue its strong turnkey data centre delivery record and related company growth.
