RMD Power & Cooling appoints Gavin Maxwell as Managing Director

Demand for datacentre power and cooling products expected to rise steadily over next few
years

RMD Power & Cooling has appointed Gavin Maxwell as its new Managing Director.
With more than 14 years experience with the company in a variety of roles including sales
manager, office manager and operations director, Maxwell has played a key role in the
development of RMD from a small electrical distributor to the UK’s leading independent
supplier of integrated power and cooling solutions for datacentres.
Maxwell takes over from outgoing MD and owner of RMD Power and Cooling, John
Smykala, who will continue to play a key leadership role in the company as Business
Development Director. As the market continues to expand, Smykala will now focus on
opening up new business opportunities for the rapidly growing company.
Gavin Maxwell says: “Thanks to John’s vision and hard work, I’m taking over a company
that’s in great shape with a bright future. Demand for our core products – power and cooling
systems – has increased steadily in recent years and all the indications suggest that this will
continue throughout the rest of this decade.
“Power outages and fluctuations are expected to increase in frequency over the next few
years so many more organisations and businesses of all sizes are looking at installing or
upgrading their own UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply). Likewise, we expect the cooling
side of our business to grow even further as companies continue to upgrade, consolidate or
merge their aging datacentre operations.
Maxwell continues: “I’ve gained an indepth overview of our business and our customers
over the past 14 years so feel confident taking on the role of MD. My aim is to keep the ship
steady, continue with the same vision that has brought us success to date and to keep up-
to-date with new technologies and solutions that can bring value to our customers. I enjoy
being customer-facing so I’ll be maintaining personal contact with our client base to ensure
that our products and services remain closely in tune with their business needs.”
RMD Power & Cooling is based in Alloa, Scotland.
