Simon Payne will lead the company's operations in Ireland. Simon is
currently managing director of Damovo UK and will now take on the
combined role of managing director of Damovo UK and Ireland. Simon
replaces outgoing Damovo Ireland managing director Maria O'Reilly, who
leaves the company after nearly five years.
"I am delighted that my responsibilities now include leading Damovo's
operations in Ireland and look forward to continuing the great work
Maria has carried out over the last couple of years," commented Simon
Payne. "Many Irish organisations are currently re-evaluating their ICT
requirements as a result of the rise of cloud computing, the continued
growth of unified communications and collaboration technologies, plus
emerging trends such as 'Bring Your Own Device' (BYOD). I strongly
believe that Damovo's consultative approach of working closely with
clients to understand their business issues and taking a holistic view
of their entire communications environment is what sets the company
apart from the competition."
Simon was appointed UK managing director in August 2012. Prior to
joining Damovo UK, Simon was managing director of Damovo Global
Services, where he successfully delivered market leading services to
mid-sized multinationals, further strengthening the existing global
footprint of Damovo. Before that, he spent 15 years working in a number
of International ICT services roles, including positions as CEO in
Australia and sales and marketing director in both the US and UK.
