Service Delivery Manager

Conor O’Callaghan

Service Delivery Manager

My job in Vilicom has evolved over the years as per the Vilicom mantra of continuously developing ambitious graduate engineers. Having built up solid technical experience, I now work as the service delivery manager and have overall responsibility for project delivery across all our regional teams. I ensure that the right blend of engineering excellence, project management and all customer requirements are delivered to our own industry leading technical standards.

The role involves planning and developing our own resources and projects to execute a service offering to fit Vilicom’s client requirements. This is achieved by spending time listening to our clients before projects commence and during delivery to incorporate feedback, studying industry trends and staying abreast of future technology roadmaps. Ultimately the job satisfaction I get is knowing that Vilicom has added value for our clients’ projects and processes, and improved our clients’ end-customer experience. Our clients’ customers are very important to us and providing end user service assurance is key to successfully delivering all our projects.

Joining Vilicom in 2006 as a graduate engineer, I initially worked on the delivery of a national mobile benchmarking project before joining the Three Ireland macro network rollout and National Broadband Scheme delivery team. Having completed numerous strategy consulting projects, I’ve consistently delivered technically challenging RF centric projects as well as continuous improvement KPI driven technical engineering roles. I’ve also applied myself as a lead solutions consultant within the business development team before taking on my current role.

I keep active outside work through anything outdoor related, hiking, cycling or even the odd race.

I hold an honours B. Eng in Electronic Engineers from the University of Limerick and I’m a member of the IET.
