GlobalLogic, a Hitachi Group company and global leader in digital engineering, has announced that GlobalLogic Ireland MD Carmel Owens, based in Monskland, was named Person of the Year at the Tech Excellence Awards 2024.

Carmel received the award during a black-tie gala ceremony at the Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire, Dublin. The prestigious awards programme highlights the contributions and achievements of individuals and organisations in the Irish technology sector.

Carmel was recognised for her commitment to the growth and success of the business – initially as Sidero and now GlobalLogic Ireland – since she joined in 2020. In the years that followed, Carmel built the Athlone-based business to become a leader in software, cloud, and digital transformation. As a result of Carmel’s leadership, GlobalLogic last year acquired Sidero, with the company announcing the merger completion in 2024.
