Every week we’re getting to know our expert team a little bit better to prove that we really are the best in the business. Today, we have the pleasure of sitting down with Tyrell MD, Bryan Malone to discuss what led him to co-founding Tyrell and the continued passion for technology that still drives him…
Name: Bryan Malone
Job title: Managing Director
Miles on the industry clock: 20 + years
Having moved from rural Ireland to Dublin City at the age of 10, Bryan’s arrival in the capital coincided with the launch of the first personal computer. So, having access to his father’s Apple Mac Classic, plus unlimited access to his own Commodore 64, Bryan’s life-long relationship with computing began.
This interest in technology led him to a Computer Programming Degree at Trinity College. However, Bryan soon realised that the challenge of creating and fixing his own code was not quite for him and so he turned his attention instead to another talent of his, the art of conversation.
Focusing on a new avenue in the world of computer technology, Bryan first witnessed video playback on a computer (Avid) in 1995 at an AV show in Dublin. He quickly became part of the non-linear revolution demonstrating, supporting and ultimately selling hundreds of video editing systems in Ireland for Professional Video Ltd.
Now fully immersed in the world of broadcast media Bryan had the opportunity to co-found and become Managing Director of Tyrell, a position he has held for the past 19 years.
Described by many as being extremely passionate and enthusiastic in everything he does. Bryan’s 19-year tenure at Tyrell has seen continued year-on-year growth. Including the establishment of an office in London, which opened in 2009. Coincidently, this was the same year that Bryan met his Anglo-Irish wife, a sure-fire good omen for the expansion of the business outside of Ireland.
With an ever-growing team, Tyrell’s star looks set to continue to rise with its founder sitting firmly at the helm. Bryan has a great rapport with the entire Tyrell team and enjoys nothing better than understanding the business inside out and getting to know the personalities involved in the ever-changing media industry.
Bryan has now swapped the late nights with tending to his garden and enjoying walks in the great outdoors. When he is not busy attending to the needs of his two daughters Bryan is content to ride the wave of Tyrell’s success long into the future.
