Joe Haugh has been appointed as CEO of Zenith Technologies

A FORMER apprentice at Augninish Alumina has got the top job at one of Ireland’s top life and technology firms, which employs over 600 people and has offices in over 14 countries.

Joe Haugh, pictured, from Hillcrest Drive, Greystones who was educated at JFK and Ard Scoil Ris is the new CEO for Zenith Technologies. He hopes to lead the company to further growth as demand  for the integration of manufacturing software systems in the pharmaceutical and  medical device sectors increases.

The new CEO played rugby for Bohemians in Limerick and is a regular visitor home as his mum, five brothers and sister still live here.

“I see great opportunity in Limerick attracting bio tech producers to Limerick with Regenernon a point in case. Limerick has a lot to offer," said Joe a former head of operations with the company, which is seen as Ireland fastest grown global life science technology company.”

Zenith Technologies’ new chief will lead the company’s strategic direction and operations, driving forward plans to strengthen its partner network, further invest in teams and infrastructure, and increase its global presence. 

With more than 20 years’ experience in the life science industry, Joe has held a  variety of roles within Zenith Technologies since joining in 2000, including director of new business ventures and European general manager.   

Over the next three years we plan to build on the considerable growth we have experienced in the USA and Asia and meet demand for our services in key territories including India, China, Malaysia and Singapore.

“As a service­based business, our people and their knowledge are our most important asset and we will be looking to add further talent to our team. Continuing to strengthen and build relationships with some of the best technology providers in the industry will of course also be a focus.”
