It’s a welcome double for the Aspira Consulting and IT Services team, featuring in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 for the second year in a row and achieving accelerated growth in 2015. AspiraCon was established in Cork in 2007 and opened its new Dublin office in the past 12 months to cater for the rapidly expanding client base in the region. The company is now rebranding its range of services as Aspira and will be moving to a new state-of-the-art Headquarters in Cork before the end of 2015.
Announcing the winners of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 programme, Joan O’Connor, Partner, Deloitte said: “The awards showcase the agility, innovation and strength of the industry. The winners epitomise these characteristics.”
“It is an exciting time for the Aspira team and we are delighted to be recognised again by the Deloitte award for our sustained growth in a competitive environment”, says Pat Lucey, co-founder and CEO, “As an Irish company that delivers Project Management Consultancy, Software Solution Development, Project Resourcing and IT Services to enterprise clients, we are competing with major international organisations and we need our team to continue to out-perform those competitors and form strong partnerships with our clients.”
The company is regarded as an industry leader in provision of these services, being the only company in Ireland certified by both the PMI®and the IIBA® International Professional Bodies. Emma Daly, Director of Project Services, emphasises “Aspira Consulting provide the IT solutions and People that businesses need to deliver their projects. As our clients have enjoyed their own success and growth, they’ve required us to expand and scale up our range of services on offer. This has created its own momentum, bringing a lot more clients on board and driving our strategy to invest in future growth.”

One noteworthy aspect of Aspira’s growth is their impressive list of clients across different industry sectors, Pat Lucey explains, “A huge advantage of Project Management expertise is that it allows us to deliver value to different sectors that face similar project challenges Whether it is IT, Utilities, Financial Services, Medical Devices or Pharma, the challenges of managing resources and risk and being efficient and organized are all Project management challenges. We use those skills to manage our deliveries to clients – we have to practice what we preach.”
Lucey elaborates “In this way we have helped a wide selection of enterprise clients, from indigenous companies, Fortune 100 Multinationals to major Governmental and Semi-State organisations. By meeting their IT and Project Resourcing needs in a professional, flexible manner, clients quickly become comfortable dealing with us. A guiding principle since 2007 has been that if we commit to doing something – it gets done. This makes a refreshing change for organisations who just don’t have the time to micro-manage their suppliers”
It’s a principle that is working for Aspira Consulting and IT Services.
