Barry Roche, Chief Information Officer, Concern Worldwide

Originally a history and politics graduate from UCD, I moved to the US in the nineties where I worked for Charles Schwab and Preferred Capital Markets in San Francisco. I started in operations, moved to the options trading side and then eventually ended up in IT, building trading networks across the US.

After a bit of travelling in Asia and South America I moved back to Dublin in 2003. My involvement began with Concern with 2003 as a volunteer and I have stayed there ever since with stints overseas in Darfur and Tanzania. I was IT Operations Manager for many years and became CIO in 2019.

The majority of the services Concern IT deliver would be very recognisable to many however the context in which we need to deliver them and the challenges that context surfaces is what makes it so interesting. We operate across 23 countries from Haiti to North Korea and have over 3000 staff and we’re focussing on a digital transformation initiative, the primary purpose of that is to deliver improved operational processes and deliver impact to our field programmes.

When not working I’m a Dad to two daughters and although retired from playing I stay involved with Raheny GAA.
