New Vice President Elected

At the April Council meeting I nominated Regina Moran CEO of Fujitsu Ireland as the next Vice President of Engineers Ireland. She was unanimously endorsed.

Regina will thus become the third female President of Engineers Ireland in May 2014 in succession to Dr. John O'Dea who will take over from Michael Phillips as President in 2013.

In May 2009, Regina was appointed CEO of Fujitsu Ireland where she leads a 350 strong team focussed on delivering ICT services to the Irish marketplace.

Following her third level education in Engineering undertaken in Waterford and Cork, Regina’s career began as an Electronics Engineer with Amdahl, a computer mainframe manufacturer, progressing to become a co-founder of the services and consulting group there.

In 1997, Regina was co-founder of DMR Consulting Ireland where she held the role of Director of Operations responsible for Project Delivery. DMR Consulting became Fujitsu Consulting and subsequently merged with Fujitsu Services in April 2004 and Regina was appointed CEO of Fujitsu Services in August 2006.

Regina is the current Chair of ICT Ireland within IBEC, a Member of the Council of Dublin Chamber of Commerce and a member of Dublin City University governing authority. She is a Fellow of Engineers of Ireland (FIEI) and a non-Executive Director of EirGrid. Regina holds an MBA from Dublin City University, which she achieved with First Class Honours, coming first in her group. She was also awarded the ‘Sir Charles Harvey Award’ for outstanding contribution in her post-graduate studies. She is married with three children and is an enthusiastic Munster Rugby supported.

We welcome Regina as our new Vice President and look forward to her experience and expertise. She represents one of the significant areas of the growth economy where major players like Fujitsu are an excellent example of foreign direct investment in the technology sector into Ireland. In Engineers Ireland, we hope to grow our role more into the Computing / Technology sector in the years ahead and are delighted that our former President Dr Chris Horn ex Iona Technologies continues to chair our Computing Division. In addition, we elected Stephen McIntyre to our Council during the year. Stephen was a Senior Director at Google in Dublin and was recently appointed CEO of Twitter Europe Operations still based in Dublin.
