Alan Byrne, managing director of Kerna, will take up the position of director of technology in Triangle.
Collective strengths and learnings
“Kerna Communications is of course already well known to us as a leading security and networking services partner, and they have the deep skills expected by our enterprise customers today,” explained Kieran McCabe, managing director of Triangle.
“The collective strengths and learnings across the blended Triangle and Kerna operation means that customers are in a great position to benefit from our expertise. Working with Alan Byrne and his expert team will provide Triangle with added scale and an important new dimension to our service offering as we seek to further grow our business.”
Triangle Ireland was founded in 2000 and today, the company is one of Ireland’s leading independent ICT providers.
