Prior to founding Kerna he worked as a consultant for companies such as Baltimore Technologies, Telecom Eireann, Jutland Telecom (Denmark), Dowty-Case Communications and managed the HEAnet Network Operations Centre for a number of years. Since founding Kerna Communications in 1995 he has led the company to a leading edge position within the networking and security community in Ireland.


Kerna has developed an enviable client list across all sectors of Irish business. The quality of the service provided by Kerna is reflected both in the profile of customers, and in the fact that many of these organisations have been loyal customers of Kerna for most of the company's history.


Kerna's vendor independence combines with a constant emphasis on finding and implementing the best available technologies and services to create a trustworthy IT system. This is an iterative exercise in business planning that analyses the gap between business needs and IT system capability. A good analysis will focus on issues of performance, resilience, security, manageability and cost, evaluate the adequacy of internal IT procedures, as well as provide a prioritised assessment of internal and external threats.
