Founders & Directors
Paul Connell and Alan McGonnell are the founding members of Pure Telecom. Both have been involved in the telecommunications sector since the early 90’s, and built Pure Telecom on the back of their extensive industry experience.
Paul Connell (Director)
Paul Connell is a qualified chartered accountant and began his career with leading accountancy firm BDO Simpson Xavier working in audit and corporate finance, both in Ireland and the US. After leaving BDO Simpson Xavier, Paul gained recognition after the successful flotation of an Irish company on to the London Stock Exchange in the 1990's. His knowledge of the telecommunications industry was cultivated while working as CFO of the Irish subsidiary of GTS, a leading American telecommunications carrier. Paul established Pure Telecom in 2002 after leaving Hutchison 3G in Austria, where he had been key to the successful roll out of a 3G mobile network in 2001.
Alan McGonnell (Director)
Alan McGonnell, a graduate of law from University College Dublin, began his working career with International Telecommunications Limited (ITL) in 1993. ITL had acquired the first licence in Ireland to compete with Eircom, and Alan was key to the commercial development of the enterprise. In 1998, Alan was appointed to the position of Commercial Director of the Irish subsidiary of Global TeleSystems (GTS). During this time GTS was one of the main competitors to Eircom in Ireland and Alan can be credited with developing and implementing the entire IP and Data strategy for the company along with GTS’s suite of voice products.
