Datalex appoints Corkery as deputy chairman
Dublin-based travel software company Datalex has appointed Sean Corkery as a non-executive director and its deputy chairman.
Mr Corkery is a technology industry veteran with over 35 years’ experience in strategic leadership and operational roles internationally.
He has held a number of senior management and board roles with information technology and telecoms companies including Actavo, Dell, ESAT Telecom, AST Computers/Samsung and Apple.
Mr Corkery is currently chairman of the Actavo Group, CTI Global and Hibernia College and is a non-executive director at the Digicel Group and Nualtra.
Paschal Taggart, chairman of Datalex said: “We are very pleased that Sean is joining Datalex as deputy chairman."
"Sean brings significant operational experience to Datalex that will be extremely valuable at this important juncture for our business. Board renewal remains a core focus as we develop and we will be making further announcements in due course.”
Mr Corkery's appointment comes after the group last month confirmed that "significant accounting irregularities" at the travel software firm were the "underlying cause" for a shock misstatement of revenue and earnings for the first half of 2018.
