Jim Darragh, the former CMO Compliance CEO, has been appointed as CEO of Belfast-based TotalMobile in succession to Colin Reid who is retiring from full-time work.
Jim’s appointment is part of ambitious plans to treble the size of the business in the next three to five years.
David Carman, Chairman of TotalMobile said, “We are pleased to announce the appointment of Jim Darragh who has over 20 years’ experience in building successful international corporate software businesses. After an extensive search, we chose him from a large field of candidates as he’s a proven strategic thinker with a strong focus on growth. This appointment is part of our strategy to ensure TotalMobile continues to grow, innovate and deliver for its customers.”
Darragh, whose father was born in Belfast, joins TotalMobile from CMO Compliance, the global provider of enterprise Health, Safety, Environment and Quality software. Previously he was CEO of Ipanema Technologies, the WAN optimisation company acquired by InfoVista, CEO of Zeus Technology, which was acquired by Riverbed and Senior Vice President at SAP.
“TotalMobile is a fantastic firm with solid foundations and the strong potential for further growth,” said Jim Darragh. “What attracted me to the firm is that it makes a real difference to people’s lives. Because of TotalMobile’s software, employees in industries like health and social care save time and get the chance to focus on doing the best job possible, which boosts morale, increases retention and service quality. In addition to our current markets I see great opportunities for the business in other vertical markets.”
Colin felt it was the right time to hand over the reins and will move to the role of Non Executive Director after a short period of transition. He said: “Establishing and successfully growing TotalMobile has been the highlight of my career. I’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the world’s most talented employees who have helped propel the business forward. As a result, we now have tens of thousands of users who love TotalMobile’s software, and the service we provide. I am delighted to be handing over to Jim who will lead the business to even greater success. I look forward to supporting the firm’s continued growth as a Non Executive Director.”
