Name: Pat Morley
Job Title: General Manager
How long have you worked with us? 1 month
Tell us a little bit about your role please
I am responsible for all aspects of the day-to-day operation of the recently acquired Sungard Availability Services Irish business. I am also part of the team working on the transition, helping to achieve a successful integration into the Viatel group. This will include the creation, replacement and implementation of new systems and tools etc.
Give us the highlights tour of your career to date
A large part of Sungard’s business was disaster recovery, I had responsibility for many recoveries from real disasters including a gas explosion in Buncefield in the UK on the 11th December 2005 which destroyed a data centre responsible for running over 30% of the UK’s payrolls. We recovered over 400 servers and successfully ran all the payrolls, so everyone was paid on-time before Christmas.
What do you love most about working with Viatel?
The people and the culture, everyone I have met so far has been a real pleasure to work with and I am excited about the company strategy and growth plans.
Describe yourself in three words
