FORMER Limerick Chamber CEO, Dr. James Ring, has taken over as CEO of the Limerick based, global consultancy firm Ingenium TC, founded by well-known businessman and former CEO of engineering giant Kentz, Dr. Hugh O Donnell.
Whilst acknowledging he has large shoes he must fill, Dr. Ring says that it is up to him to drive the company on to new heights, targeting new markets around the world.
Dr. Ring said “What Hugh has achieved in building Ingenium from an idea to where it is today, operating in 12 countries worldwide has been an incredible success story. The products and services we offer in the areas of organisational and people development are transformational, delivered with exceptionally high quality and relevant to all industry sectors. The onus is on our team to bring the Ingenium suite of products and services to new industries and markets around the world.”
Dr. Ring identifies the core of Ingenium’s business in their dedication to informed decision making across the organisation, emphasising that balanced decision makers make better choices—both for themselves and for their businesses. He said “Equipped with the ability to weigh options wisely, anyone can become a truly valuable asset to their company. Helping people develop informed decision making underpins all we do at Ingenium”.
He added, “More and more companies are realising the importance of work culture and personal development in achieving their organisation’s strategic goals; if you don’t have the right people, motivated and engaged, you have nothing. This is where Ingenium comes in. Our consultants work directly with executive leadership teams to provide advice and guidance on their organisational development initiatives. Ingenium assists organisations through major change projects, building cognisance and developing solutions at each phase.
“We help them define where they want it to go and provide them with the support and tools they need to reach these outcomes.
The fact that Ingenium is headquartered out of Limerick was a “huge draw” for Ring, he said. “Limerick has developed a well-deserved reputation in the last few years as a place to nurture start-ups and scale up SMEs, something that Ingenium has certainly benefitted from through strong local support.”
