Who's Hot: Paul Synnott, ESRI 

Geographic Information Systems Company Promotes Head of Sales to Country Manager Position



ESRI_Paul_Synnott.jpgESRI Ireland, the local partner of ESRI Inc, a global supplier of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) has announced that Paul Synnott has been promoted from Head of Sales to Country Manager with immediate effect.



Employing nearly 30 professionals in its Dublin & Belfast offices, ESRI Ireland claims to have designed and built some of the largest and most advanced GIS systems in Ireland, providing solutions for business, society and the environment with clients from Government departments and agencies, local government, utilities, transport, distribution and logistics and the GIS professional community.



Synnott has worked at ESRI for eight years, and in his new role will assume the responsibility for revenue and profitability growth in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland markets. He also has full operational responsibility for ESRI Ireland's Sales, Marketing and Customer Services operations in Ireland that contribute to a multi-million Euro annual sales target.



Talking to this morning (Tuesday), Synnott said that there has been a lot of regulatory and compliance directives handed down from the EU and the public sector, which accounts for around 70% of ESRI's portfolio, has had to embrace GIS as a result. "We've seen a clear move, particularly by our local government clients, to embed GI into their business processes and systems such as CRM, Facilities and Asset Management. GI has a tremendous effect on planning. For example, our software will play a major role in the next few days as the freezing weather and snow comes to an end and a flooding situation emerges. Authorities like the NTA (National Transport Authority) and EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) will be able to see the areas at risk, what resources they have, and where those resources are, and this will allow them to plan more effectively."



Previously, Synnott held managerial positions in GIS companies, Paradigm Technologies and The Discovery Programme. He holds a Higher Diploma in Geomatics from Dublin Institute of Technology and is currently undertaking an executive MBA at Henley University, London.
