US-based SaaS company Diligent has opened its new European hub at Bonham Quay in Galway.
Since announcing Galway as its European hub in November 2020, Diligent has hired 275 people in the region, with a further 50 positions open. Located in the Galway Port area, the state-of-the-art office will play an important role in supporting Diligent’s global operations and driving long-term business growth.
Headquartered in New York and operating in more than 130 countries, Diligent helps leaders turn governance into a competitive advantage through insight and secure, integrated SaaS applications. The innovative software is used by one million users and more than 700,000 board members and leaders around the world.
Diligent will adopt a flexible working approach for employees while encouraging employees to use the new facilities at Bonham Quay. The 35,000 square meter space includes green spaces, breakout terraces and a unique rooftop landscape with stunning views of the city and will be the first development in Ireland to comply with the One Planet Living framework.
“Our European hub is an innovation engine for our business across Europe and beyond. We are excited to expand our presence in Galway,” said Brian Stafford, CEO of Diligent. “Our new office enables us to attract the best talent, putting us in a strong position to provide leaders with the technology, insights and connections they need to make more impact and lead with purpose.
“Diligent has invested in this new state-of-the-art office to increase employee engagement, attract and retain talent and demonstrate our commitment to Galway and the wider region,” added Ruairí Conroy, Diligent’s Galway branch manager. “As a relatively newcomer to Galway’s growing tech ecosystem, we strive to promote a dynamic and enriching environment where collaboration, networking and learning are encouraged. I commend the IDA for their work in promoting the West as a prime location for investment and look forward to expanding the Diligent team here in Galway.”
“In 2020, Diligent announced Galway as the location of its European hub,” said IDA Ireland Executive Director Mary Buckley. “This confident commitment to the West region and indeed Ireland is paying off and it’s great to be celebrating the official opening at Bonham Quay. In the past two and a half years, Diligent has expanded its team here to 275 people. Diligent is a welcome addition to the growing Tech cluster in the West region. I wish Ruari and his team continued success here.”
Since establishing its European hub, Diligent has integrated itself into the local community by partnering with key stakeholders including Galway Chamber, Western Development Commission, NUIG and COPE Galway.
In the past 12 months, the company has also made four major acquisitions, including Accuvio, the Limerick-based sustainability and ESG reporting software company, allowing it to add new capabilities and deepen its expertise and solutions that Diligent provides to its customers.
