Hewlett Packard Enterprise names Ray McGann as Ireland managing director
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced that Ray McGann has been appointed managing director for HPE Ireland. He succeeds Maeve Culloty who assumed a new role reporting to CEO Antonio Neri as his chief of staff.
In his new role, McGann will be responsible for over 600 staff in the Republic and Northern Ireland across sites in Leixlip, Galway and Cork. He will also oversee HPE’s relationships with customers, partners and government organisations.
McGann joined HPE Financial Services (HPEFS) in 2005, having previously worked in various management roles in Lucent Technologies and Compaq. Most recently, he led the HPEFS team responsible for worldwide enterprise asset management, developing a worldwide change management plan, as well as coaching customers and partners globally on best practices in sustainable use and reuse of IT assets.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to lead the impressive team we have here in Ireland and will focus on ensuring that all our team members feel connected to HPE’s objectives and values, and are proud to be part of this organisation,” said McGann. “My primary goal is to cement HPE’s position as a trusted partner for our Irish customers and partners, enhancing customer satisfaction and driving growth. The HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform will be crucial to our success, helping customers unify their multi-generation IT strategy with a consistent cloud experience across all their applications and data, as well as enabling them to manage their IT estate in a more sustainable fashion.”
Following last year’s announcement of HPE making a strategic investment in Ireland, creating 150 highly skilled jobs, the company continues to enhance its capabilities to provide latest cyber security and cloud technologies and strengthen its position as a major employer across the island of Ireland.
