Tony O’Malley, CEO, Fujitsu Ireland

After nine years leading Fujitsu Ireland, Regina Moran takes up a new role overseeing UK and Ireland operations, while Tony O’Malley earns a new appointment.

O’Malley has been appointed as the new CEO of Fujitsu Ireland, taking up the position with immediate effect.

O’Malley succeeds Moran, who has been appointed as CEO of Fujitsu UK & Ireland. Moran, a chartered engineer, recently completed a year-long stint as president of Engineers Ireland, during which she focused on the role of women in STEM.

Former Irish Army captain O’Malley has worked with Fujitsu Ireland since 1998, holding a variety of roles within the company including, most recently, customer accounts director.

“I am delighted to be taking over as CEO of Fujitsu Ireland,” he said.

“Having worked with the company for nearly 20 years, I have witnessed its development and growth. While Fujitsu is a truly global company, Fujitsu Ireland has developed a strong Irish heritage through its partnership with customers, colleagues and the local community in which we operate.”

The Japanese ICT company employs about 159,000 people supporting clients in more than 100 countries. Fujitsu Ireland employs 350, and the firm counts itself among the top five IT solutions providers in the country, with clients including public and private sector bodies such as the Office of the Houses of the Oireachtas, University College Dublin and KBC Bank Ireland.

O’Malley will now head up the day-to-day operations of Fujitsu Ireland at both a national and international level.

“We pride ourselves on being a forward-thinking company and Fujitsu Ireland plays an important role within the overall Fujitsu global network through its research and development activities,” he said.
