Iron Mountain Inc., based in Boston, Mass. with an office in Reston, Va., announced Jan. 28 the appointment of Bill O’Neill as Vice President and General Manager for Iron Mountain’s Government Services business. O’Neill will be charged with leading Iron Mountain’s efforts to generate growth and market share in the federal government sector by delivering records and information management solutions for the company.
“We are privileged to be able to add Bill’s deep experience and expertise in serving the public sector to lead our federal government business,” Iron Mountain Executive Vice President, U.S. Federal, Security and Legal Ernest Cloutier said. “His background in technology and leadership in the federal community fits with our approach to serving our federal customers, looking holistically at their entire enterprise and partnering with them to deliver solutions that balance the requirements for protecting information with unlocking the benefit that their information can provide. He will provide tremendous value to the company and our federal customers, and we’re thrilled to have him leading our government business.”
“This is an exciting time to join Iron Mountain,” O’Neill said. “As the company continues to make investments that leverage our expertise in information management and our trusted reputation for security, we can help federal agencies address the collision of initiatives and looming deadlines that are intersecting around information management, whether it’s the FDCCI Mandate, Open Data Policy or the Records Directive. In addition to the company’s focus on customer service, Iron Mountain is committed to advancing a diverse and inclusive workforce and actively seeks to employ veterans, active duty guard members and reservists. These two commitments are areas of focus for me personally and were contributing factors to me taking this position.”
O’Neill brings 30 years of technology business experience in the public sector, including positions as Senior Director for Hewlett-Packard (HP) Networking, Qwest, Nortel and Raytheon. He serves in board-level positions at TechAmerica and the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association’s Washington, D.C. chapter.
Iron Mountain also announced a plan to expand its Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) compliant storage facilities. The expansion will add approximately one million cubic feet of federal records storage capacity across three new geographic markets. The company has also made an investment in a climate-controlled facility located in its Fredericksburg, Va. CFR Facility.
