In memoriam: Mel McIntyre (1956- 2017)

14 June 2017

Author: Graham Taylor

It is with huge sadness that I must let you know that Mel McIntyre passed away on Sunday after a long illness.

Mel has not only been a long term Director of OFE but personally and through his company OpenApp have been supporters of OFE almost from the beginning. OpenApp built its business in Ireland on the back of Open Source and Mel was a leader in its use in Healthcare. OpenApp is now a European leader in this sector.

He helped found Open Ireland and has been a high contributor to OFE’s development over the years. Mel was always ready not only to provide objective comment and advice, but be the first in the line to provide support. We have all lost a great colleague and a true friend.

Chairman, OFE
