Power Distribution, Inc. (PDI), a pioneer of innovative power transformation, power distribution, and intelligent power monitoring solutions for mission-critical operations, announced today that its Mission Critical award nominee, Douglas Harding, Manager of Facility Engineering at Digital Realty, is a runner-up for the Facility Manager of the Year awards. Harding was honored for his facility’s efficiency and innovation, due in part to his use of PDI’s products.
Three years ago, Mission Critical Magazine launched its Facility Manager of the Year Award with the intention of recognizing facility managers who demonstrate proficiency in three areas: efficiency, innovation, and management. Harding exemplifies these stated proficiencies with his thoughtful product selection as well as achieving LEED certification in each of the twelve facilities he manages, helping to create a MOP (Methods of Procedures) template that is still widely used within the industry, and exceeding customer expectations.
“Having started my career in this industry twelve years ago, I have learned a lot from working in multiple facilities in various states nationwide, in building them from the ground up,” Harding said. “Many thanks to PDI for all your support; it is a privilege to be recognized by Mission Critical Magazine.”
“PDI’s customers continue to excel in data center efficiencies and Doug Harding has gone beyond most of these lofty expectations,” said Pat Boyle, Director of Strategic Accounts, PDI. “Achieving the runner-up status from hundreds of potential winners, stands as testimony to Doug’s data center innovations and an example for other facility managers to follow.”
