As of 2021, BearingPoint Ireland Managing Partner Eric Conway will take on a new regional role. Following his promotion, Gillian O’Sullivan will step up to head BearingPoint in Ireland.

Eric Conway has a track record of overseeing the sale and delivery of large scale management consulting and technology implementation projects. Having spent more than two decades with BearingPoint so far, he has been a Partner since 2015, and has been leading the Irish practice since 2017. Based in Dublin, he has overseen major growth of the firm’s national wing, including its headcount expanding beyond 300 staff.

As reward for his hard work, he has been appointed Head of BearingPoint’s GROW region spanning Finland, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the UK. Taking the reins sees him succeed James Rodger, who took on the role last year after BearingPoint launched the GROW division as part of a wider organisational reshuffle, in light of the firm’s new growth strategy.

The promotion has also freed up Conway’s previous position as Practice Leader of Ireland. Stepping into his shoes from the start of 2021 is Gillian O’Sullivan, who brings more than 20 years of consulting and technology experience to the role.

O’Sullivan has been with BearingPoint since 2004, and after spells as Head of Systems Integration and Head of IT Strategy and Transformation, she became a Partner in 2016. She previously held management roles across Europe with Datarroba, MobileAware and Sentia Technologies, having commenced her career as a Consultant with PwC.

The firm’s UK division is led by Practice Leader Tony Farnfield. A Partner in the firm since 2016, he was named Country Leader two years later, having previously held senior roles with Trinity Horne, Barco Graphics and Dupont Fuji Imaging.
