iXora announced Vincent Beek as CEO

iXora, a leading developer of innovative cooling solutions for data centers, today announced that Vincent Beek has been appointed CEO. Beek, who has been COO of iXora since its founding in 2020, succeeds Job Witteman, who will remain with the company as CSO. Menno Hilarius joins the iXora board as COO.

Successful field test good time for management change

The management change at iXora is a natural step in the development of the fast-growing company.

Job Witteman, co-founder and outgoing CEO, explains:

“After a wonderful time at the helm of iXora, I feel this is the right time to hand over leadership. I recently turned 67 and iXora has grown into a leading player in this fast-growing market.

The results of the first field test were very positive. Now that we are on the eve of the introduction of the Global Pilot Series, in which hundreds of iXora installations will be rolled out nationally and internationally, it is a good time to pass the baton. I look forward to helping shape the future of iXora in my new role as CSO (Chief Strategy Officer).”

New board member Menno Hilarius

In addition to the change in management, iXora announces the arrival of Menno Hilarius as COO (Chief Operating Officer). Hilarius, who left ICTRecht after five years as COO and previously held various management positions at hosting company True for more than a decade, will lead all operations at iXora.


“From my experiences at True and ICTRecht, I have learned that data centers and their customers have a great need for increasingly powerful systems, partly due to the rapid growth of AI, but at the same time there is a desire to limit energy consumption. That is why I look forward to helping accelerate the transition to immersion cooling at iXora.”

CEO Vincent Beek:

“I would first like to thank Job for everything he has done for iXora so far. With his vision, knowledge and expertise, he has led us excellently over the past three years. Under his leadership, we started developing a product that helps data centers become more sustainable and enables them to operate in a socially responsible manner. I look forward to continuing our collaboration in our new roles, with Menno Hilarius on board as the new COO to manage the growth of iXora.”

The management changes will formally take effect on June 1, 2024.
