After 17 years of self-employment in a variety of consulting roles, Padraig has gained the trust of the industry by proving time and time again that he can deliver incredible results. Before founding the decade-long consulting firm Vfecto, Padraig took on big roles ranging from Project Engineering to Project Management in companies like Bombardier, Solectron and Vitec. Since then he has consulted on projects for APV, Invensys, McCarthy & Stone, Balfour Beatty, Cuisine de France and Valeo Foods. Examples of his impact include optimising supply chain efficiency across Central and Eastern Europe, leading business transformation for PE-owned firms in Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, Czech Republic and Italy, and facilitating business consolidations in North America and China. By becoming a trusted advisor and partner, customers regularly ask Padraig to return and support further improvement projects, as he guarantees results.
Padraig’s diverse set of skills and experience allows him to bring perspective and innovation that simply isn’t possible to generate in-house. His conviction is that true business transformation must start with the people involved and is subsequently passionate about enabling team-members to realise their full-potential and act on it.
Before co-founding OutForm Brian held a number of senior positions in the corporate world across operational and consulting roles. A fast-track career in Rolls Royce led him to working in the UK, China and America. It was during this time that his passion for business improvement brought him into to a consulting career initially with KPMG Operations Strategy Group and later with Unipart Expert Practices where he led the manufacturing and infrastructure practice. Through the development of great client relationships and delivery of results, Brian grew this practice by 400%. Most recently with a young family in tow, Brian returned to Irish shores where he established the infrastructure division for global construction consultancy firm Turner and Townsend.
Over the last 2 years, Brian has been predominantly consulting on National infrastructure programmes with a special focus on the water sector and the National Water companies in Ireland. Over the years his clients have included Jaguar, Land Rover, Rolls Royce, EDF – Hinkley Point C, Kier, Shanks, Interserve, Northern Ireland Water and Irish Water. He is deeply passionate about implementing Lean thinking, continuous improvement, and transforming public sector organisations into performance driven-businesses.
