A US software provider – at the cutting edge of assisting multi-nationals in the area of corporate governance – has announced the appointment of an industry veteran to head up their new European Hub, based in Galway.

Most recently he served as the Senior Vice President of Inside Sales at SiteMinder, a cloud platform for hotels, where he was responsible for recruiting and expanding operations at the Galway site.

Last November, Diligent announced plans to create more than 200 local jobs in Galway across several business functions – including customer support, customer success, finance, product, HR and marketing.

The Corporation, described as a leading modern governance company with a platform used by nearly 700,000 board directors and leaders, is headquartered in New York City.

Reacting to his appointment Ruairí Conroy said that Diligent’s commitment to growing in Galway – engaging with the community and building a top-performing workforce – was what really drew him in.
