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,” 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.”
