HPE Ireland has announced the appointment of Ray McGann as its new managing director, who will look to enhance customer satisfaction and drive growth across the country.

The new managing director first joined Ireland-based HPE Financial Services (HPEFS) in 2005, following various management roles at Lucent Technologies and Compaq. 

Most recently, he led HPEFS, where he was responsible for worldwide enterprise asset management, developing a global change management plan, as well as coaching customers and partners on best practices in the sustainable use and reuse of IT assets. 

“Ray is incredibly motivated to take the role and deliver on the vision he has for Ireland,” said Marc Waters, HPE’s managing director for UK, Ireland, Middle East and Africa.

“He has our full support and will have an incredibly positive impact on our organisation both internally and very importantly in the market with the customers and partners.”

HPE continues to strengthen its Irish business. Last year, the firm announced a strategic investment in the country to create 150 highly skilled tech jobs, as well as a new Hybrid Cloud Practice for Irish customers. The firm also named Galway as a European hub for cyber security operations. 

McGann succeeds HPE Ireland’s previous managing director Maeve Culloty, who took the reigns back in 2019. Culloty will now report to HPE CEO Antonio Neri as his chief of staff.

Commenting on his new role, McGann said the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform will play a key role in achieving the company’s objectives in Ireland.

“My primary goal is to cement HPE’s position as a trusted partner for our Irish customers and partners, enhancing customer satisfaction and driving growth,” he said. 

“The HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform will be crucial to our success, helping customers unify their multi-generation IT strategy with a consistent cloud experience across all their applications and data, as well as enabling them to manage their IT estate in a more sustainable fashion.”
