Lendlease has appointed Sunita Bottse as its new head of data centres.
In her new role, Bottse will report to Andrew Gauci, head of telecoms and data infrastructure, Asia, and will be tasked with sourcing and developing data centre assets across Australia, China, Japan, Malaysia and Singapore.
Based in Singapore, Bottse is responsible for leading Lendlease Data Centre Partners, the group’s US$1 billion joint venture with a large institutional investor to develop data centres across the Asia-Pacific.
Under the joint venture, Lendlease Data Centre Partners is currently developing a 120MW hyper-scale data centre in Greater Tokyo, Japan, with construction due to begin in June 2022.
Prior to joining Lendlease, Bottse was chief executive of Supernap in Thailand, the company behind the first carrier-neutral hyperscale data centre in the country. Before that she was vice president of Ctex data centre.
She has more than a decade of experience building and managing Tier IV data centres in the region, Tier IV being the highest rating for fault tolerance and redundancy.
Andrew Gauci, head of telecoms and data infrastructure, said: “We are delighted to have Sunita onboard. She brings with her both rich and diverse experience in the data centre space, and her deep expertise and industry experience will be an asset to Lendlease as we drive greater growth in acquisition, development, construction, and investment in data centres.”
