Tech trailblazers Shemas Eivers and Teddy McCarthy, founders of Client Solutions Ireland, the National Software Centre, Boole Investment Syndicate and IT@Cork, won the Tech Person of the Year Award at the it@cork Leaders Awards. Speaking at the gala dinner at Rochestown Park Hotel, Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney said:
“Every year these awards provide us with an opportunity to recognise and reward the invaluable contribution both the businesses and individuals involved make to the south-west region — and to the IT sector as a whole in Ireland. Each and every one of the candidates nominated here tonight are worthy of this recognition — without them, the region would not be the thriving IT hub it is today.”
It was the 14th year of the awards, which celebrate the south west’s tech sector heavy-hitters. And award organisers it@cork believes that support and recognition is increasingly important as Cork is set to become the country’s fastest growing region under the Project 2040 plan, and a place where new opportunity can meet exceptional ICT talent.
