Commenting on the firm's European expansion, Diligent CEO Brian Stafford (pictured) said; “With our new international office in Galway, Diligent is making a critical investment to accelerate our growth strategy and attract exceptional talent to our team.

The key to our continued success is great people who are committed to our mission of providing clients with insights and technology to power modern governance. The excellent talent available in the Galway community will support the nearly 50% of our client base located outside of the U.S., enabling us to enhance the customer experience and achieve our long-term goals. We are very pleased to establish this cross-functional office in Ireland and to be in the good company of many thriving tech companies. We thank the Irish government for supporting this initiative, and we look forward to many years of collaboration as we strive to be a productive corporate citizen in the country.”  

Diligent’s investment in Galway is supported by the Irish government through IDA Ireland. Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland, said; “The commitment to more than 200 new jobs by Diligent is a welcome boost to the economy of Galway and the West region.

It is a huge vote of confidence in Ireland and demonstrates our continued agile and adaptable business environment at a time of unprecedented global flux due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Ireland offers a safe and stable investment location with access to the EU market, an educated and skilled workforce and an attractive environment where people want to live and work.” 

Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar T.D. commented; “This is great news for Galway. By choosing to establish their European hub in the county, Diligent Corporation can look forward to accessing a rich pool of talent to fill these 200 jobs this decision will create. I wish them the very best with the development and hope they continue to build on their relationship with Ireland.”
