On Wednesday the 21st of June, 2023 Convergint UK hosted an evening of networking, food, and drinks aboard the HMS Belfast in London to give thanks to Convergint customers for their business and ongoing support. The event gave attendees an opportunity to meet new people, network, and find out more about Convergint and partners capabilities. Along with networking, customers enjoyed 1940’s entertainment of jazz singing and cabaret dancing. It was definitely a night to remember.

At this event, Convergint UK colleagues were joined by Convergint’s Board of Directors and Senior Leadership team from around the globe. The event was kicked off with an opening speech from Mike Mathes, followed by a global update from Vice Admiral, Kevin Donegan (Ret.), and now Executive Vice President of Convergint. Kevin’s career with the U.S. Navy spanned 38 years and service in critical leadership positions in the Middle East, Asia, and Europe. He was the Former Commander of U.S. 5th Fleet, the 32 Nation Combined Maritime Forces, the Director of Operations at U.S. Central Command, and the Commander of Battle Force 7th Fleet in the Pacific. Kevin’s knowledge of geopolitical events brought a unique expertise to the industry, and he shared his knowledge and insight at this event.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for taking the time to attend our customer appreciation event, and for their continued support of Convergint.

About the HMS Belfast

HMS Belfast is a Town-class light cruiser that was built for the Royal Navy. She is now permanently moored as a museum ship on the River Thames in London and is operated by the Imperial War Museum. Construction of Belfast, the first ship in the Royal Navy to be named after the capital city of Northern Ireland and one of ten Town-class cruisers, began in December 1936. She was launched on St Patrick’s Day 1938. Commissioned in early August 1939 shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War, Belfast was initially part of the British naval blockade against Germany.
