Darragh Richardson

Agile Networks

Agile Networks design, build, and operate IT Networks and are the country’s leading independent, network-only focused integrator. Prior to establishing Agile Networks, Darragh spent 14 years working for large multinationals in marketing and management roles, with South African conglomerate Datatec Group, US vendor 3Com, and for Belgian-based integrator Telindus.

In 2011, Agile was founded on a failed business that had seven customers and a turnover of just under €900,000. Four years later, they have 1.6m end users across 1,350 sites, 100 blue chip customers and turnover of €9.1m. By combining genuine technical excellence, a unique operational model, and relentless customer focus, Agile has disrupted the marketplace with a very clear and simple vision: to set new standards in IT networks.

Darragh has set his sights set firmly on expanding internationally, investing heavily in a state-of-the-art ‘interoperability’ lab, pre-staging facilities and over $1million USD in spare equipment to support a growing customer base. The company has also developed a new managed services platform, which is being rolled out to customers throughout 2015. This new innovation will offer distinct value added services, allowing Agile to develop in-house intellectual property as a gateway to international markets.
