Paul Rahilly

Chief Executive Officer

Paul brings over 20 years’ experience in industrial maintenance engineering, (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) MEP construction project management, automation systems integration, and industrial process optimization. As an industrial maintenance engineer Paul learned the craft at Midland Malting’s (Guinness supplier). Later, Paul led and managed green-field commercial and industrial construction projects. Paul coordinated all project management tasks for mechanical and electrical systems installations. Those experiences underscored intense challenges bringing O&M (operations and maintenance) mindsets together to improve capability of process equipment. Consequently, in 1997 Paul founded Interactive Facilities Corporation (IFC), a service provider implementing integrated enterprise asset management (EAM) systems, control and automation systems, industrial process optimization, mobile worker projects, and management information systems; along with institutionalized work processes. The company managed multi-million dollar projects for Southern California energy companies. In 2006 Paul re-launched IFC as Mtelligence (now Mtell) to deliver product software to transform old maintenance practices to prescriptions of precise maintenance intervention. Paul has a Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering from University College Dublin, Ireland.
