Going forward, Anstett will oversee the company’s commercial solutions organization and its innovation teams along with driving new digital-first product development for Iron Mountain and its customers.

Before joining Iron Mountain, Anstett was the CIO for Nielsen where she was worked on technology transformation to increase customer engagement, expand margins, and enhance security through cloud-architected data analytics platforms across Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.

Iron Mountain provides solutions that include secure records storage, information management, digital transformation, secure destruction as well as data centers, cloud services, and art storage and logistics. Through these services, Iron Mountain helps customers lower cost and risk, comply with regulations, recover from disaster, and enable a more digital way of working.

Anstett is succeeding Fidelma Russo — who left the company on May 3rd.
