Fujitsu has confirmed Michael Keegan’s promotion to head of its £1.8bn business in the UK & Ireland.

Keegan takes over from Duncan Tait, who was recently promoted to head of EMEIA, corporate senior vice president, Fujitsu Ltd.

Keegan has spent the last three and a half years leading Fujitsu’s successful Technology Products Group for the UK & Ireland. Under his leadership, the business will focus on growth in the private sector and defence, as well as its strategic work in government and driving success in its product business units.

“Michael has the breadth of commercial experience that is required to continue to drive the UK & Ireland forward,” says Tait. “With nearly thirty years’ experience in the IT sector, and over six years leading various business units for Fujitsu UK & Ireland he has a proven ability to lead and accelerate growth.”

Keegan’s experience in the IT sector includes holding senior leadership roles at the Royal Mail Group/Post Office Ltd, Magex, MasterCard and Nat West. Since joining Fujitsu in 2006, he has worked across a number of business units, including Government.

Keegan, who will report directly to Tait in his new role, says he is excited to take on the new challenge: “Duncan has built a solid foundation in the UK & Ireland which will allow us to continue to grow our region rapidly. With a more global approach to our business, we will be able to service our large private sector customers across borders, realising our full potential and becoming a formidable player in the IT sector globally.”

Keegan’s promotion to the head of the UK & Ireland forms part of a larger restructure for the vendor, promoting increased collaboration among business units as the company seeks to take advantage of growing globalisation in the ICT market. This has resulted in the creation of larger regions, all of whom report directly in to the Japanese headquarters. The UK & Ireland will now form part of the EMEIA region.
