Brian has extensive experience in international sales and marketing in the I.T. Industry. In 2001 he was a founder of Meridio, the enterprise documents and record product company. As the CEO, he grew Meridio into a Microsoft Gold Partner company with 175 staff and over $20m annualized revenue. In November 2007 he led a trade sale of Meridio to Autonomy plc and left the company in May 2008 following a six month integration programme. Prior to founding Meridio, Brian spent 15 years with ICL, most recently as MD of ICL in Ireland. Brian was also a Non-Executive Director of Lagan Technologies – a global leader in Enterprise Case Management. Brian was also a Director of Kainos from 1986 to 2001.
In 2008, Brian joined Replify as CEO and was instrumental in some key deals for Replify such as as C2K (Classroom 2000) where Replify was deployed in all Primary Schools throughout Northern Ireland in conjunction with Northgate Managed Services. In 2012, he founded Repstor (a spin-off company of Replify). After this, he transitioned from CEO to Chairman of Replify’s Board.
Brian would love to retire and spend more time on the golf course, but the rest of the Replify Board feel he is too valuable an asset to retire now and ensure to keep his interest piqued.
Brian has received an OBE in the 2022 Queens Honours list, which we are delighted to hear and not surpised of course! He has and continues to be on the board of several local Northern Ireland companies. Replify will always be indebted to the advice and cousel that he has provided over the years.
