Leading SCADA network and mobile telecommunications supplier, EMR Integrated Solutions today announced the establishment of a formal project management office (PMO) with dedicated management and a dedicated team, to handle project delivery for its many customers across Ireland, UK and Europe.
The team has been set up in response to a strong upsurge in contract wins particularly in the UK, following the company’s entry to that market in late 2015.
The primary role of PMO is to provide a blend of overarching project direction and ongoing control and it will serve as the central hub between senior management, supervisors, engineering, sales, finance, service, logistics and the customer.
Commenting on the development, Derek Glynn, COO with EMR said:
“We’re seeing increasing project volume, variance and complexity, particularly in our UK business. The establishment of a PMO will guide multi-project management processes that closely tie into EMR’s existing ISO quality, environment and Health and Safety procedures. This will generate a significant reduction in project cycle times and successful project delivery in line with customer expectations.”
The PMO is led by Michael Quinn, a seasoned industry professional who previously served as COO with Dennison Trailers and as a senior director with Tomra, a world leader in sorting technology for the food, recycling and mining industries. He was also formerly group operations manager with Odenberg Engineering and VP of European Operations with MTI and brings a wealth of operational experience to the role.
Michael is supported in his role by Niall Clancy and Colm Farrell. Niall has been with EMR almost three years now in a project management role while Colm has been promoted from within, moving from a field technician role into project management.
EMR recently announced a €500,000 investment in the business and plans to increase headcount to 50 over the next 12 months.
