In line with this vision, Regina has spearheaded a business change programme in Ireland placing a firm focus on innovation, customer personalisation and commercialisation of R&D programmes in Big Data, eHealth and sensor technology to address future societal challenges.
Her personal philosophy also reflects these societal centric values and Regina is committed to advocating for Ireland on the world stage, redressing the skills gap, and promoting careers in ICT for women and students in line with a multiple pathway approach.
Having studied Engineering in Waterford and Cork, Regina began her career as an Electronics Engineer with Amdahl, a computer mainframe manufacturer, and was co-founder of the services and consulting group there. In 1997, she was co-founder of DMR Consulting Ireland where she held the role of Director of Operations responsible for Project Delivery. She considers her engineering background to being a key part of her success in business and innovation.
DMR Consulting became Fujitsu Consulting and subsequently merged with Fujitsu Services in April 2004, leading to Regina’s appointment as CEO in August 2006. In May 2009, following the merger of the three existing Fujitsu businesses in Ireland, Regina was appointed CEO of Fujitsu Ireland.
In keeping with the firm’s Japanese heritage, Regina is a firm believer in the eastern-influenced long-term view of business and its societal impacts, and feels Ireland can benefit from looking east as well as west. As well as supporting Fujitsu’s overall vision in an Irish context, Regina is committed to improving education and innovation in Ireland, through research initiatives with Universities and CSR initiatives with local schools with the primary goal of improving the skill sets of people in Ireland.
In addition to Fujitsu, Regina is a member of the board of the Irish Business Employers’ Confederation (IBEC), and a member of the Dublin City University governing authority. She is also a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers of Ireland (FIEI) and a Non-Executive Director of EirGrid.
Regina holds an MBA from Dublin City University, which she achieved with First Class Honours, coming first in her group. She was also awarded the ‘Sir Charles Harvey Award’ for outstanding contribution in her post-graduate studies. She is married with three children and is an enthusiastic Munster Rugby supporter, with trips to Thomond Park a regular family activity.
