Alan Howarth, Chairman at 8 Solutions

8 Solutions, the UK’s leading data centre healthcare company specialising in the deep cleaning and decontamination of critical environments has today announced the appointment of Alan Howarth to the position of Chairman.

For the last 12 years Alan has successfully run a significant portfolio of Non Executive Director positions in a variety of sectors. He has been Chairman of listed companies, AIM organisations and private businesses. His current portfolio includes CRF Health Inc, Cerillion Technologies Ltd and Chamberlin plc. He has extensive City experience in acquiring, fund raising, transforming and selling companies. He has also managed a number of flotations.

Prior to this, Alan began his career at Bass Charrington and subsequently held senior executive positions with Hewlett Packard and John Swire & Sons in the Far East. He also spent nearly two decades with Ernst & Young where he was one of the founding partners.

Commenting on his new appointment as Chairman at 8 Solutions, Alan said, “Joining the company at this crucial period is exciting and challenging. 8 Solutions is a key player in the specialist data centre deep cleaning and decontamination sector and currently works with the majority of the FTSE 100 companies in the UK, but the opportunities for growth are significant. A recent report by Emerson estimated that there are now over 509,000 data centres in the world, this presents huge opportunities for expansion for the business.”

Mark Plant, Chief Executive at 8 Solutions believes Alan’s extensive high profile international career and wide ranging experience in transforming companies makes him an excellent choice. Mark said, “On behalf of the Board, I would like to wish Alan every success as Chairman at 8 Solutions. Aside from Alan’s experience with blue chip companies he has also played a pivotal role in both Health and Education, including Chairman of an NHS Acute Trust and a Council member of the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education. Having this level and breadth of experience across so many sectors will provide fresh insight for the business.”
