Wrike tar­gets EMEA growth from its lat­est Dublin base

Irish Independent - Business Week - - TECHNOLOGY - Louise Kelly

US on­line soft­ware firm Wrike has moved into its new EMEA head­quar­ters in Dublin as its global foot­print rapidly ex­pands.

The col­lab­o­ra­tive work man­age­ment plat­form is the part­ner of choice for 18,000 or­gan­i­sa­tions, in­clud­ing Google, and nearly two mil­lion users across 130 coun­tries. Founded in 2006, the Sil­i­con Val­ley-head­quar­tered firm first set up a hub in Ire­land in June 2015. Dart­mouth House on Grand Pa­rade is the com­pany’s third EMEA head­quar­ters here, es­tab­lished ini­tially as part of Wrike’s am­bi­tious ex­pan­sion in Europe.

Vice pres­i­dent of sales and gen­eral man­ager of EMEA Pa­tricia DuChene has built the team – of close to 80 staff – from the ground up, with the help of the IDA. With plans to in­crease the work­force in Dublin by an­other 50 em­ploy­ees in the next three years, Ms DuChene said that EMEA is the com­pany’s fastest grow­ing re­gion.

“There is still tremen­dous op­por­tu­nity here, in terms of tal­ent and mar­ket share, and we are just get­ting started in EMEA,” she said.
