Newsweaver chief executive Andrew O’Shaughnessy who set up the company in Cork in 2002 said “Internal communications — or employee communications — are important for any company, but for a large multinational with tens of thousands of employees operating across several time zones in different continents, it is critically important and a very complex challenge, which is where the unique technology solutions we have developed come into play”.
“It’s exciting to see the impact that our product is having on the world’s leading companies "R&D is the cornerstone of our strategy and I’m really delighted that our growth to becoming the global leader in Internal Communications has been driven, and will continue to be driven, by pioneering R&D and new product development coming out of Cork.”
Mr O’Shaughnessy said the company is growing its global blue-chip customer base and is preparing to launch new products. “We need to support that growth and expansion by attracting the best talent that is out there, people who want to be part of an entrepreneurial, innovative, hard-working and ambitious company,” said Mr O’Shaughnessy.
Enterprise Ireland’s chief executive Julie Sinammon said it was providing job creation supports to the company. “The development of Irish companies of scale is a key priority for us and we look forward to working closely with Newsweaver, to optimise their full growth international potential, consolidating their business in Cork,” she said.
