I work very closely with Ronan in HP. He has proved to be an excellent IT Solutions Analyst and a very reliable person. Ronan delivers consistently with good solutions and is a very valuable resource for results & escalations and has also proved to be very nice and sociable person alike. Both BOI customer and HP staff have only provided highly positive feedback. I would highly recommend Ronan to anybody looking for as a seasoned Professional Technical Analyst Consultant
Ronan is an incredible resource, who is tenacious, brilliant, and has a work ethic beyond your wildest expectations. Ronan's professionalism is beyond reproach, and when he delivers a task, it's always beyond what you expected. It's just in his nature to make sure that every last "i" is dotted, and every "t" crossed. It cannot be expressed enough that Ronan has a mind like a steel trap. He remembers details of things that happened 2-3 years before, with almost perfect clarity. I wouldn't just recommend Ronan, I would simply love to continue working with him, anywhere. If you dismiss all of his skills (and there are many), and look at nothing else but his personality, he's the person you want to work with, and if you had to spend a week with anyone, locked in a room, supporting an environment, Ronan is the man you want with you. However, his knowledge on everything IT related is so great, it's hard to just look at his personality. Whether it's the Virtual world, Windows, Networking, etc is just beyond comparison. You will not be disappointed with Ronan, you simply can't be. He is that good.
I worked with Ronan closely on a number of occasions in BOI, mainly resolving issues at the sharp end of security, and IIS. I found Ronan to be very approachable and extremely capable. Ronan was also very vigilant in remaining with an issue through to completion. In my opinion Ronan would be an asset to any organisation looking for that highly experienced technician.
I've been involved in a number of projects with Ronan and he has always delivered above and beyond what was expected. Ronan is always a perfect 'go-to' man with answers to almost any questions thrown at him. I would highly recommend Ronan for any technical position.
Ronan is a highly motivated, highly skilled, senior VMware and multi platform systems engineer who consistantly provides an extremely high level of service. He has the ability to manage relationships within business and has a great ability to engineer complex technical solutions to meet business requirements. I would be happy to recommend Ronan and happy to provide more information if required.
I worked with Ronan on various IT projects at Hewlett Packard, most significantly the Basel II delivery for Bank of Ireland. During this time Ronan proved invaluable in system design and implementation. Using his experience in Infrastructure and Operating Platforms, we were able to develop and deliver a robust, well managed, system for the customer. He responds to crises/change with a level head and will add value to any project he is associated with. I would certainly enjoy working with him again, and would recommend him to any prospective employer.
Ronan single-handedly provided both the Windows Server and VMware Tower support functions I needed during my time at Bank Of Ireland working on HP's (TI) Transformation Initiative project. He demonstrated excellent core technical knowledge on VMware ESX, Virtual Center and supporting virtualization technologies whilst providing me with technical and design support I needed on various aspects of the installed Wintel customer estate.
He was always available, knowledgeable and interested and had a careful professional engineering approach to his work which is vital for success in a banking environment!
Ronan is a true professional with an honest, open and personable style.He is a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual that is passionate about the work he does. This passion and enthusiasm is tangible and transfers to his colleagues. He has an excellent work ethic and is a great communicator, with the ability to speak to people on all levels with ease.”
Ronan and I worked together in the early days of the BoI TI. He was the key Technical resource in the Microsoft server area. As a result, Ronan was regularly overloaded with work and requests for support from the Projects group. He always dealt with difficult situations professionally and fairly, and was adept at managing competing priorities for his and his teams time. He is also very strong technically. I'd be pleassed to work with Ronan again.
I have worked with Ronan for many years, and have found him technically excellent, always willing to go outside the box, personable & professional. I would have no issues recomending Ronan
Ronan is an exceptional engineer. Creative in his approach to technical issues and highly appreciative of the business needs. I have seen Ronan work on many complex architectual issues both for customers and internally - he is one of the most talented technicians that I have had the pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to recommend him.
