Leading Irish data and analytics technology company, Over-C, has appointed Nick Megson as Head of Business Development for Ireland, the UK and Spain. This appointment further strengthens Over-C’s offering as it continues its expansion overseas.
Nick will be responsible for developing and implementing Over-C’s sales strategies and operations in these key markets, identifying new market opportunities and generating new growth. Before joining Over-C, Nick was Head of IoT Specialist Sales for Telefónica in the US, where he was responsible for growing Internet of Things (IoT) solution sales for major clients across all sectors, focussing on IoT, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Big Data solutions. 
Roy Vervenne will lead sales for Over-C in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, building on Over-C’s recent successes in these increasingly important markets. Over-C has its headquarters in Cork, Ireland and employs over 30 staff across its offices in Ireland, the UK and the Netherlands. 
Speaking about his new role, Nick said: “I am excited to join Over-C at a time when the company is scaling rapidly, both in Ireland and overseas. This sustained growth shows the appetite across European organisations for Over-C’s transformative technology. 
“I look forward to working directly with our enterprise clients across these vital markets, as they discover how we can positively impact each of their operations.”
Welcoming Nick to the team, Michael Elliott, CEO of Over-C, said: “As an increasingly global company, we are constantly recruiting, with a focus on developing a diverse team of highly-skilled individuals. Not only does Nick bring with him years of IoT sales experience, he also has an in-depth knowledge of our key target markets of Spain, the UK and Ireland.
“Organisations across Europe have a requirement for disruptive software solutions that improve efficiency and compliance as they manage large-scale infrastructures and facilities. Over-C’s solution is truly universal as it has been designed to fit all industries and can be tailor-made to each client’s needs. Nick’s appointment is the first of several strategic hires, as Over-C increases its presence in multiple global markets.” 
Over-C’s technology enables businesses to track assets and digitally manage operational processes such as security patrols, safety checks and cleaning activities using standard mobile devices and strategically placed sensors. It allows an organisation to quickly and accurately identify who did what, where and when, by analysing the real-time data captured in paperless reports and presented in powerful dashboards. In the first month alone, the technology has led to operational savings of up to 20% for Over-C’s clients and, on average, a 50% increase in operational performance.
