Roger Newman Head of Technical Design Authority – Enterprise Architect at Royal Mail
Dermot and I were fortunate to be part of a small team engaged for six months to develop a strategy which encompassed technology and business requirements for a complex group of companies across multiple countries.
Dermot was absolutely key to the team being able to deliver a piece of work that far exceeded the stakeholder’s expectations. His level of commitment, his ability to present a coherent story in an innovative way, his understanding of how to solve problems and yet keep real business needs in mind are first class. Given any kind of business challenge he’s someone I’d want to have in my corner
Fergal Murray VP Sales at Storyful
Dermot served as COO as Storyful grew from a raw idea to a company of 35 people, with a client base that includes some the biggest names in global news and media. Dermot’s portfolio that spanned Sales, Operations, Product Management and Client Delivery. He kept many plates spinning during some “interesting times”. He is a clear thinker who put in extraordinary effort when necessary, and was a steady hand on the tiller when the going got tough. He was instrumental in getting the company though the first few rounds of funding and into the the critical early customers. I cannot recommend Dermot highly enough
Eoin Lynam Chief Operating Officer at AXA Global Distributors
It’s not often you find a PM that understand the commercial benefits of an initiative as well as delivering the project itself. Dermot has that skill. He sees the end customer point of view and “gets it” without losing focus on the technical part of his job. Recommended.

Fergal Noonan Head of Strategic Partner Management, Global Outsourcing at eBay
I worked with Dermot on numerous business change projects over the years. He is an uncanny ability to dissect a problem and then build an actionable plan around it. Dermot manages to bridge the gap between presenting a business solution as opposed to just a technical solution. The phrase ‘Customer Centric’ is now part of our modern business jargon – few practice it – Dermot is an exception
Clare Conway Director of Taurean Data Solutions
I worked with Dermot for a number of years in GE Money Ireland where we were both project managers. I started in a junior position and I learnt a huge amount from working with Dermot of large projects. His attention to detail, ability to understand and extract the right requirements for the customers and in turn, ensuring the developers delivered became a model for my later successes.
Since leaving GE, I am in frequent contact with Dermot and have found him to be an insightful mentor as well as a mine of information and expertise.
Neil McKeever Head of Prudential Regulation at AIB
I worked with Dermot on a specific project in GE. While focussed on the local market we needed pan-European input. Dermot’s view on cutting edge IT and his intuituve understanding of the application of IT across borders and boundaries helped smooth this process
I am happy to recommend Dermot’s work, application and insight
