CEO Outlook: Hardwired for success, with Colin Lynch, EPS Global

For a company like EPS Global, it is a remarkably busy time to be in business. Founded in Ireland in 1999, EPS Global is a distributor of specialised IT components and semiconductors used in high-growth areas including data storage, cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT). In its services division, EPS Global is one of the world’s largest semiconductor programming service providers, working with Tier 1 Automotive electronic suppliers, top 20 OEMs and top 50 contract manufacturers.

Today, the company has annual sales of €100m, locations across 23 countries, and a plan to scale even further on the back of unprecedented demand for its services.

Driving that growth is co-founder and CEO, Colin Lynch. An electronics engineer by training, Lynch spent 20-years as the company’s Business Development Director, expanding its global reach as far as China and building highly successful relationships with major brands including Alibaba, Google, and Bosch. Today, as CEO, he has a vision for further growth through external equity, M&A, and a possible IPO.

They also discuss:

  • Taking over the role of CEO after 20 years as Business Development Director – how he approached the new role and his priorities for the business
  • Global shortages of electronic components during a time of great demand, and the opportunities therein
  • The future of business travel and client relations in a post-Covid business world
  • Creating a company culture based on trust
  • His experience in the EY Entrepreneur of the Year programme.
