Mike O’Brien

Founder and CEO of EastPoint Solutions

As Dr Martin Luther King said, “Life’s most urgent question is, what are you doing for others?”

Mike O’Brien, Chief Executive Officer, is the founder of EastPoint Solutions which – 20 years in the making – is the realization of a lifelong dream.

Mike has long experience in senior management roles, working with large multidisciplinary and multicultural local and international project teams. He has been responsible for delivering information technology solutions to clients in Ireland, mainland Europe, far east and the US.

He is highly focused and committed, and a regarded by colleagues, peers and clients as a consummate professional. Creative and innovative, he is a natural leader with a great ability to maximize the abilities of a team. Most importantly, he keeps learning, adapting and developing.

20 years of accumulating skills and experience

Originally an Electronic Engineering graduate, Mike’s first opportunity to adapt occurred in the early 90s. The opportunities in the electronics area were diminishing, so Mike entered the IT industry, joining a subsidiary of Apple Computers, Claris Software. Software product development was then at its prime in Ireland. Mike identified many opportunities in this technology and innovative environment, and progressed rapidly.

In 1998, when Apple shut Claris down, Mike joined startup firm Connect Business Solutions. Now in a senior management role, he used his entrepreneurial skills to steer a course that led to rapid growth and many successes. He moved from product development to leveraging custom and bespoke application business solutions. This success led to the Business Solutions led by Mike being acquired by System Dynamics in 2003. He was promoted to Enterprise Technology Services Director shortly after.

In April 2009, Mike founded EastPoint Enterprise Information Solutions Ltd. Its success shows how even small emerging companies can make a big difference in these times. Like big vessels, big organizations are slow to change direction, but smaller, more agile organizations adapt quickly and can focus on the individual needs of their clients.
