Tomás O’Leary

linkedinCEO & Founder

Tomás, our Founder and CEO, is a thought leading, vocal and influential player in the secondary ICT market. Having spent over 15 years either working in IBM or in leading one of its more successful European business partners, Tomás recognised the impact the major changes in the ICT market were having on the traditional enterprise ICT users and decided to give them something different – a choice! He has spent the last number of years building a business model and a team at Origina that is fast becoming the most recognised global leader in the independent support of IBM software.

A graduate of Trinity College Dublin, Tomás has been a consistent advocate for the promotion of choice for large ICT users and a campaigner against the lock in practices that can dominate the ICT industry. Having cut his teeth with the US based Service Industry Association’s Advocacy Group in 2013 (that ultimately became the Digital Right Coalition) –  he then went on to help found, and serve on the board of, the not-for-profit Free ICT Europe Foundation  in 2014. Tomás also serves on the board of the Service Industry Association.
