Leading SCADA services and utility network provider, EMR Integrated Solutions today announced an expansion of its project management office (PMO) with the promotion of Elaine Mooney to Project Manager.
Elaine takes up the role having worked with the company for almost 15 years in a variety of other positions in administration and service. During the previous five years, she was service manager.
Elaine will be responsible for smooth project delivery across Ireland and the UK, working across a number of sectors including utilities, water and telecommunications. Her work closely ties into EMR’s existing ISO quality, environment and health and safety procedures and her addition to the PMO is in response to a strong upsurge in contract wins particularly from the utility sector in the UK.
Commenting on the move, Derek Glynn, chief operations officer with EMR said:
“We’re delighted that Elaine has decided to further her career path with us. We always endeavour to promote from within and Elaine’s tenacity and willingness to learn has brought her through the ranks of the organisation to this key role. She’s currently working to finish her formal project management certifications and I’ve no doubt that the rest of the EMR team will work to support her as she transitions to her new role.”
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time as Service Manager and have learned so much while working with Derek and the rest of the team,” said Elaine Mooney. “I’m very excited about the prospect of joining the PMO and look forward to progressing my career even further.”
Elaine’s promotion announcement comes on International Women’s Day and increasing the participation of women in STEM careers is something the EMR management team are very conscious of.
“We’ve been recruiting consistently across both Irish and UK operations for the past two years or so,” explained Glynn.
“We are definitely seeing increased interest from women in STEM-related job roles. But it’s particularly pleasing when one of our female staff members steps forward to learn and grow into another role within the team. We’re committed to ongoing investment in our staff and career advancement opportunities will continue.”
Elaine is a native of Dublin, is married to Ian and has two girls and a boy.
