International executive search firm Granger Reis has appointed Steve Dargan to lead its new Digital Infrastructure practice.

Steve is widely recognised as one of the world’s foremost experts in the Digital Infrastructure (DI) leadership market, with more than 17 years’ experience. He joins Granger Reis (GR) following a five-and-a-half-year tenure at Korn Ferry, where he was Global Market Leader in DI.

The expansion will see the new DI team align with GR’s core practice areas: Energy & Infrastructure; Mining & Metals; Real Estate; and Industrial Technologies. Their focus will be on data centres, towers and fibre, working with the world’s foremost tech, investment, and construction organisations.

The new practice is already navigating the impact of AI, as organisations grapple with the critical need for leaders to create, develop and scale new ways of delivering this technology sustainably.

Jamie Page, Managing Partner of GR, said: “Digital infrastructure drives all of our lives and Steve brings unparalleled expertise and dedication in understanding the best people for the job in arguably the most influential businesses in the world.

“Our new DI offering aligns perfectly with our other world-leading practices, leveraging deep industry knowledge and commitment to delivering top-tier talent.

“Across the board, we will also continue to place planet and people at the heart of every possible decision to ensure those in the top jobs have all our futures in mind, too.”

Steve Dargan, whose new title is Senior Partner and Practice Leader, Digital Infrastructure, said: “The market has increasingly asked for a more agile, focused, and innovative approach to finding the best leadership talent in the Digital Infrastructure space.

“Moving to GR is a fantastic opportunity to address these requirements and for our growing team to align with the values and purpose of an organisation that has really understood what the global leadership future looks like.”
