International consulting and technology company Aspira, part of the emagine Group, today announces the appointment of Gillian Whelan as Managing Director and Country Manager to lead the Group’s operations in Ireland.
The appointment comes at a time of sustained growth, with emagine reporting a staggering year-on-year increase of 93% in group revenue to over €603 million in 2022.
Since joining Aspira in 2017 as a Senior Executive, Gillian has made a significant impact on the business, progressing to head up the very successful Project Management Training Practice within the company. She was subsequently promoted to Chief Commercial Officer in late 2021 and is the natural choice for the leading role, as the consultancy evolves and grows through its strategic partnership with emagine.
Gillian is taking over from former Ireland MD Peter Ryan. Peter has moved to a Professional Services focussed role to help lead deployment of this area across emagine’s markets, whilst also becoming Managing Director for emagine’s operations in the Netherlands and Portugal.
