Clodagh Murphy

A little bit of background information:

Originally from Dublin I spent the early stages of my career working in San Francisco in the Investment sector. I returned to undertake my degree (which I hadn’t done from school), so at 26 I embarked on 4 years of part-time university course alongside a career in IT in Dublin. I then moved to the UK in 2003. My career highlight is leading the team at Eclipse Internet as Managing Director through a period of change which saw us diversify our offering from B2C broadband to B2B IT services. This change took the business revenue from £20m to £38m turnover over a 5 year period.

I live in Exeter with my husband Philip and our three children.
