“Larry (who has 40 years’ experience in the ICT sector) joined Codec in 2010 to set up a new Dynamics CRM practice and over the past 10 years, has been instrumental in helping Codec to build the largest Dynamics practice in Ireland, one that was chosen as Dynamics Partner of Year for five years running.

In late 2020, Codec decided it was time to create a new team that would focus solely on the public sector and Larry was appointed to head up the team in January 2021.

Having previously worked for the LGMA (LGCSB) for 10 years Larry has always had a particular grá for the public sector. “It’s a great privilege to be asked to head up a team that will be dedicated to helping our public sector to deliver on their digital transformation objectives. We feel that it is so important that the Irish public sector are aware there is an indigenous (and Microsoft full suite) ICT specialist on their doorstep. With offices in Dublin, Galway and Belfast, Codec has an all-Ireland presence,” he comments.

Codec have seen huge growth over the recent past and FTE staff numbers are currently at 240 and this number is forecasted to increase to 300 by the end of 2021.”
