Economic Development Consultants Ireland (EDCI) is the culmination of 25 years’ experience working in emerging markets. I have worked in over 50 countries on 200+ projects in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe, the Former Soviet Union and most recently the Caribbean.
My clients include the World Bank Group, Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the European Commission – blue-chip, Triple-A rated clients. I also work with private sector clients ranging from SMEs to multinational 100,000+ employee organisations. Core to what drives my approach to the delivery of successful projects is managing and mitigating risk from the outset – as a former colleague recently remarked: “I will certainly miss the comfort of knowing that you will spot trouble from a mile off and move to prevent difficulties”.
I have a proven track record in delivering new markets, new clients, new revenue and sustainable long-term relationships across Europe, Asia, Africa and the Caribbean. I am commercial in approach underpinned by a strong technical base and whether it’s finding you the right markets, the right clients or delivering your new project and mitigating risks – you can rely on me and my network to get it right.
I have a Bachelor of Commerce (B.Comm) from the National University of Ireland (UCC), a Master of Business Studies (MBS) from the University of Limerick and I am a Fellow of the Irish Institute of Training and Development (FIITD). I have lived in Ireland, Austria and Singapore.
