With growing customer demand for new data center construction, Electronic Environments Corporation (EEC) appointed three new members to its dynamic team: Mike Walsh, Technical Services Manager; Robert Hoffman, Project Executive; and Scott Willard, Northeast Region Senior Project Manager/Construction Manager.
