28 July 2020 – Arkphire Group, the Irish owned IT solutions and managed services company, has announced the appointment of both Edel Creely and Brid Graham to head up the Group’s newly created Arkphire Services and Arkphire IT Procurement Divisions respectively.
Edel Creely takes up the position of managing director of Arkphire Services, following Arkphire’s acquisition earlier this year of Trilogy Technologies, the IT managed services company, co-founded by Edel and in which she served as managing director.
Since Arkphire’s acquisition of Trilogy Technologies, Edel has played a significant role in overseeing the integration of Trilogy Technologies into Arkphire’s business. Having been appointed to the Arkphire board of directors following the Trilogy acquisition, Edel’s new role as managing director for Arkphire Services will see her lead the services business, focused on driving service excellence in the delivery of cloud solutions, digital workspace and cyber security services that transform and secure client infrastructure.
Brid Graham has been appointed managing director of Arkphire’s IT Procurement business and has also been appointed to Arkphire’s board of directors. Brid has led Arkphire’s product procurement business for the past nine years, leading Arkphire’s focus on the multinational client base both in Ireland and Internationally. In her new role, Brid will be responsible for driving the commercial success of the multinational client business internationally.
Speaking about the new appointments, Paschal Naylor, CEO at Arkphire said, “Edel and Brid are great additions to our senior leadership team at Arkphire and both will play instrumental roles in driving further growth in our managed services and IT procurement businesses.”
Over the past couple of years, Arkphire’s business has enjoyed considerable growth, both organically and through acquisitions such as Trilogy incorporating Zinopy and more recently with Singapore based, Generic Technologies, a specialist Apple Authorised Resellers and an Adobe Gold Partner.
