Phill Lawson-Shanks has had a convoluted path into tech. In the past, he worked for a company that owned and operated airpots in Europe. He got involved in the very early days of servers – so early, that this was back when they were just PC’s under someones desk. This took him down the path of migrating mainframes to more cost effective, productivity machines. He worked for Compaq at one point, which brought him to the states. Personally, he enjoys risk taking. He rides a Ducati motorbike way too fast, enjoys adventure sports, jumping out of planes, and rock climbing.
In 2013, the founders of Phill’s current company saw the way the data center industry was going. They saw that the energy consumption around DC’s was going to be astronomical. They started building some incredibly innovative things in this area, and got Phil’s attention. Three years ago, he joined the team.
