SentryOne in the Spotlight at Dublin Media Event
DUBLIN – March 7, 2018 – SentryOne was introduced to Irish media today as a high growth technology company creating new jobs in Ireland. The Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland organized the event which included an address by Heather Humphreys, Minister for Business Enterprise and Innovation for Ireland.
“There are obvious tax, language and time zone advantages that go along with opening an international office in Ireland,” said Douglas McDowell, Chief Strategy Officer for SentryOne. “But without the right talent, no company can grow its business. In Ireland we have identified a large pool of technology talent we believe will propel our growth in the Eurozone.” McDowell represented SentryOne at the event. The new SentryOne EMEA office will officially open on April 2, 2018.
Welcoming the SentryOne announcement, Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland, said “IDA Ireland’s high-growth businesses represent an increasingly important part of Ireland’s high tech business ecosystem. Ireland remains a compelling location for early stage start-up companies to service a growing customer base in Europe.”
SentryOne announced in February that it would expand internationally by opening an office in Dublin City Centre, Ireland, in early 2018. The Company will manage its European, Middle Eastern and African (EMEA) operations through the new Irish subsidiary, SentryOne EMEA, and plans to add as many as 50 employees in sales, channel and customer support staff over the course of the next three years. The Company also recently announced an enhanced Global Partner Network to better support its rapidly expanding international partnership presence.
