Iron Mountain appoints Bill O’Neill to lead Federal business

Iron Mountain 112Iron Mountain Incorporated, a Boston, MA-based provider of storage and information management services, announced on January 28 that Bill O’Neill will be joining the company as vice president and general manager for Iron Mountain’s Government Services business. In his new role, O’Neill will lead 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.

O’Neill has thirty years of technology business experience in the public sector, including his most recent position as Senior Director for Hewlett-Packard (HP) Networking, where he drove enterprise, server, storage and network solutions in addition to converged cloud infrastructure strategies for defense, civilian and intelligence community customers. Prior to his role at HP, Mr. O’Neill held senior sales leadership, operations and solution development positions at Qwest, Nortel and Raytheon. He serves in board-level positions at TechAmerica and the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association’s Washington, DC chapter.

“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,” said Ernest Cloutier, executive vice president, U.S. Federal, Security and Legal for Iron Mountain. “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.”

In addition to the hiring of Mr. O’Neill, Iron Mountain 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, increasing the company’s ability to better serve its agency customers. The company has also made an investment in a climate-controlled facility located in its Fredericksburg, VA CFR Facility. The facility provides the ability to manage vital records requiring secure, climate-controlled CFR storage environments, providing optimal protection for records against extremes in temperature, moisture, dust and contaminants.

“This is an exciting time to join Iron Mountain,” said Bill O’Neill. “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.”
