Introducing Amber Forke, Director of Sales, Nexans Data Center Solutions
For Amber Forke, it was the people at Nexans Data Center Solutions that factored most into her decision to sign on with the company. “That really swayed my decision to join,” she says. “I’ve been incredibly impressed with everyone at Nexans.” Heading up the North American sales team, Amber draws on 20+ years’ of sales and marketing experience, with a significant portion spent in Silicon Valley working with top tier hyperscale customers.
The potential, both of Nexans Data Center Solutions and the industry, are what drives Amber. “Data centers will only continue to expand, with a huge growth rate to 2020 and beyond,” she says. “I’m excited about my new position, it’s a huge opportunity to support this growth, and participate in the evolution of this industry. My group is focused on supporting the performance and expansion of hyperscale, cloud and global data centers, but most importantly satisfying the customers.”
In her off-work hours, one of Amber’s favorite activities is rock climbing. Her dream is to climb El Capitan, a 3,000-foot vertical rock face in Yosemite National Park in California, a mecca for rock climbers. So far, she’s climbed portions of El Capitan, working her way up to a full ascent. “When I’m climbing, it’s almost Zen-like, I don’t think about anything else,” she says. Based near San Francisco, Amber enjoys exploring the plentiful climbing challenges in California, including Yosemite. “It’s the best granite to climb in the world,” she says.
