Iron Mountain Appoints Eileen Sweeney Senior Vice President and General Manager, Data Management
Sept. 3, 2014 - BOSTON Iron Mountain Incorporated (NYSE: IRM) today announced that Eileen Sweeney, formerly of CSC, has joined the company to lead its data management business segment, a $400 million global operation. Sweeney will report directly to Iron Mountain President and CEO William L. Meaney.
In her new role, Sweeney will oversee Iron Mountain’s global data management business including offsite tape vaulting, archival tape management, asset and media destruction, and data restoration. The data management business provides service to more than 30,000 customers across 75 markets via nearly 100 data management facilities. Sweeney will be responsible for the continued development of the data management portfolio to support customers’ evolving information management needs.
“Eileen is a fantastic addition to our team,” said William L. Meaney. “She is a high-impact leader that possesses the winning track record for growing technology services businesses that we wanted overseeing our data management business. We’re particularly excited about her ability to drive international growth in rapidly changing IT markets, given that our IT customers are redeploying tape—in conjunction with disc and cloud technologies--to lower their information storage costs without sacrificing their privacy or access requirements. Needless to say, we’re thrilled to have Eileen running a very important business for us and to add her to our senior executive team.”
Sweeney comes to Iron Mountain from CSC, a global leader in information technology services and solutions. There she served most recently as vice president and general manager of the multi-billion dollar global manufacturing segment where she improved the group’s pipeline development and increased operating growth. She spent 20 years with CSC, and held a number of senior positions including global president of the manufacturing sector and managing director of the consulting group.
“I’m thrilled to join Iron Mountain and lead its global data management business. Iron Mountain has a great brand of trust and security, and I’m excited to be a part of growing the value proposition for IT leaders, who traditionally know the company for off-site tape storage. The company brings so much more than that, and we’ll be focused on helping IT leaders tackle their broader business challenges, beyond information protection,” said Sweeney. “Combining Iron Mountain’s dynamic company culture with the opportunity to help grow its global business made this a really great role fit for me.”
Prior to CSC, Sweeney worked at Coopers & Lybrand Consulting and General Electric. She holds a Master of Business Administration and Master of Science in Industrial Engineering from Northwestern University, as well as a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Union College.
