Lisa McIlhone of Virgin Media Business

Lisa McIlhone is the recently appointed Enterprise Account Manager for Virgin Media Business. Having joined the company in 2016 as Channel Manager, Lisa successfully developed and led a new partner channel in Northern Ireland and is now helping Virgin Media’s largest enterprise customers achieve their business goals. Lisa’s background is in marketing and sales and in 2011 she was awarded her Masters in Marketing, Entrepreneurship and Strategy from the University of Ulster. Since then she has enjoyed a successful career in the telecoms and tech industries, having worked with large enterprise customers, developers and manufacturers in the UK and internationally. Lisa says “When I was studying for my Masters at the same time as working 2 jobs, I kept telling myself it would all be worth it for the career I would have. I was right- I love my job and I feel very fortunate to have been able to travel across the world and work with great companies and customers.”

Based in Belfast with Virgin Media Business, Lisa works with customers all over Northern Ireland and beyond to deliver enterprise level network, security and communications solutions. In the current climate employees need more flexibility and customers want a more personalised experience across an ever-growing number of channels. The technology required to make this happen is increasingly dependent on the cloud. Lisa and the team at Virgin Media Business are helping businesses navigate these complex changes by providing consultation and advice on their journey to the cloud. Lockdown for Lisa has also meant changes to her own way of working and adapting to working remotely with a one year old at home. “It has not been easy but it is amazing how fast you adapt and find a new schedule to your day. Luckily my business has been really supportive and I have all the tech I need to get my work done.”

Lisa says; “It is an everchanging situation for all industries at the moment and for my customers their challenge is trying to navigate their IT strategy in the context of Covid-19. It is a new challenge but one that I am committed to helping my customers succeed with. I am helping many customers accelerate their digital transformation, and I feel very lucky to be in the position to help affect real change and support their teams, no matter where they are working from.”
