Tom Fitzgerald

It’s with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of our CEO Tom Fitzgerald.

Our thoughts are with his family during this difficult time, and we extend our heartfelt condolences to all who knew him.

Tom’s passion and commitment for technology, business, the Irish language, and community were exemplary. He was a dedicated, people-centric person who genuinely cared for his community and the people that surrounded him and worked with him, and his achievements are a testament to the impact one individual can have on multiple levels nationally and internationally.

Bárd’s operations will continue with the same level of quality, commitment, and standards of excellence that our clients and stakeholders have come to expect.

This year holds particular significance for Bárd as we celebrate our 25th anniversary, a milestone that Tom was particularly proud of and looking forward to celebrating with all our employees, clients, and stakeholders.

His legacy will forever be woven into the tapestry of Bárd.
