From Corporate World to Entrepreneur
With a background in Applied Physics and Electronics, Ogie first embarked on a multinational career that took him through prestigious companies like HP, IBM, and Dell. However, in 2008, Ogie decided to take a leap of faith, resigning from his position as Director of IT at Dell to pursue his entrepreneurial aspirations.
ViClarity was born from Ogie's vision to provide innovative solutions in the realm of Audit, Risk, and Compliance (ARC) for highly regulated industries. Founded in 2008 under the name YouComply Ltd., the company quickly gained traction, especially in the financial and healthcare sectors. Today, ViClarity stands as a global brand, serving clients across Ireland, the UK, the USA, Canada, and Australia.
