Ronan Harris appointed Managing Director of Google in UK and Ireland

Fionnuala Meehan will take over as site lead for Ireland

Google has appointed Ronan Harris as the new Managing Director for the company in the UK and Ireland. Having joined the company almost 12 years ago as an engineer, Mr Harris will now move to London to lead the team.  

“I’m looking forward to taking on a new challenge of leading the UK and Ireland business. As one of the most sophisticated digital countries in the world, it’s an exciting time to help our advertisers make the most of what the web has to offer. I’m leaving Dublin with mixed emotions as I’m so proud of what we have achieved over the past few years,” said Mr Harris.

He took over as head of Google Ireland back in 2015. 

The company's VP for EMEA Google Marketing Solutions, Fionnuala Meehan, will take up the role of Google Site Lead in Ireland, alongside her current post. 

"I’m honoured to be given the chance to represent this fantastic, diverse, fun and innovative site. The way we work with the community in Ireland is really important to us and I look forward to strengthening our relationships further. I can’t wait to further develop our culture and programmes in the years ahead.”
