Steve Beard – Life in data centre real estate: It is busy!!

In this episode I am joined by Stephen Beard, Head of Data Centres EMEA & APAC at Knight Frank.

Steve followed his family members into the world of real estate and his interest in tech lead him towards the data centre industry.

We discuss how Steve started his career, how he was first exposed to data centres and how data centres has become much more visible in the world of real estate. We then discuss the Knight Frank & DC Byte report that looks into the state of the market in Europe.

Steve has an excellent insight into the European and APAC data centre regions.  If you want a quick snapshot of the market then this is well worth a listen!
