Norwegian data center company Green Mountain has named Svein Atle Hagaseth as CEO, replacing Tor Kristian Gyland, who stepped down due to personal reasons.

Gyland will remain with the company as a consultant.

Hagaseth has spent nearly seven years at Green Mountain, including the past five as chief sales officer.

“I look forward to continuing my journey in Green Mountain and I am extremely honored and excited to lead such an amazing organization. Through our people and operational excellence, we are ready to capitalize on our platform for growth, both in Norway and across Europe," Hagaseth said.

Green Mountain was acquired by Israeli real estate firm Azrieli Group for $850 million in 2021, and has plans to expand beyond Norway. Last year, it bought a facility in Romford, London.

Eyal Henkin, CEO of the Azrieli Group, said: “On behalf of the Board and owners, I want to thank Gyland for his many years of exceptional service to Green Mountain and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors. At the same time, we are certain that under Hagaseth’s leadership, Green Mountain will fulfill its growth ambitions.”

The company operates data centers in Rennesøy, Rjukan, and Enebakk. Last December, it completed an expansion of the latter facility.
