Gary O’Sullivan has been appointed as the head of Sia Partners’ operations in the UK and Ireland. He joined the firm two years ago, when it acquired the company he had founded.

Sia Partners is a management consulting firm which serves clients across a number of the industries which stand to benefit most from quantum computing. The firm works with organisations in banking, insurance, healthcare, telecommunications and media, energy, resources and utilities, transportation and logistics, industry and retail, government, and technology. Over the last few years, the consultancy has built deep and unique expertise, with a number of acquisitions and senior appointments.

Gary O’Sullivan initially joined Sia Partners as the result of such a move; coming aboard as part of the Pathfinder acquisition in 2020 – a company of which he was a co-founder. Now, the Dublin based professional has been promoted to Managing Partner of the firm’s UK and Ireland wing.

Bringing 30 years of experience to the role, O’Sullivan will oversee operations in Sia Partners’ UK and Ireland markets. This will see him help create market-leading strategies with client teams, and improve service delivery and drive increases in performance.

O’Sullivan began his career in 1990 with Ford Motor Company working in process improvement which developed his passion for finding better ways of doing work. He went onto work with organisations such as Fruit of the Loom, Intel, Kodak and Bausch + Lomb in Ireland, before moving into consulting in 1997. Then, he joined the management team of Vision Consulting, where he established the firm’s Operational Excellence and Manufacturing Consulting team. In 2004, he left to become Head of the Regional Consulting for Deloitte in Ireland.
