We are pleased to announce that Paul Byrne has joined BITS as both an investor and company director, working alongside Gavin Dixon. Paul brings over 30 years of experience and knowledge in the technology industry with him, having recently sold his UK based IT company (On Line Computing) which he co-founded 26 years ago.
Paul has extensive knowledge in the technology sector and was attracted to join BITS because of the company ethos, team culture, strong financials and the ever-expanding client base.
“I studied close to 100 companies and met with 25 of those when I decided to come back to Ireland. Gavin was running a great business but was looking at taking the company to the next level, so the timing was ideal for both of us.”
BITS currently work with over 300 businesses across the Leinster region and Paul & Gavin have ambitions to grow this number and open other locations in the coming years. BITS is a leading Managed IT Solutions company in Ireland and their focus is to grow BITS from their current 17 employees to over 70 staff members within the next 10 years.
The decision to join the growing team at BITS was highly thought-out with thorough research and regular contact between Paul and Gavin, before the decision for Paul to come on board was finalised. Paul concluded that:
“I’m delighted to be joining BITS and working with Gavin and the team to drive the business forward. “
BITS Founder and Managing Director Gavin Dixon, commented:
“It’s great having Paul come on board with his extensive experience and it brings a fresh set of eyes to BITS which is always useful. We have a growth plan and we want to expand the business across all sectors.”
