Ireland is known as the land of a hundred thousand welcomes due to a common refrain when a visitor is welcomed into someone’s home. Céad míle fáilte means just that, a hundred thousand welcomes, and we would like to warmly welcome David Clarke into the Keelvar family.
As Keelvar enters a new chapter in its development and growth, David Clarke, the former Founder of Cape Clear Software and CTO at Workday, is taking the reins as company chairperson to help Keelvar steer a course towards even larger expansion.
Workday was a company that pioneered SaaS-based delivery of ERP solutions for HR and Finance. They were at the vanguard in delivering solutions more efficiently to large enterprises. They grew as category leaders and their strong technology foundation was a critical factor.
Likewise, Keelvar is at the forefront of a new wave of intelligent systems to automate delivery of solutions and reduce the burden for over-stretched teams in procurement. Technology leadership is central to Keelvar’s philosophy and strategy so David’s arrival as chairperson so we can receive guidance and stewardship from an experienced industry leader.
It would be remiss of us not to extend our thanks and warm gratitude to our outgoing Chairperson, Kieran Moynihan. From our earliest infancy, his guidance from the cradle of the university research laboratory to a company with fifty staff now and growing quickly was instrumental to our success. We would not be where we are today without his valuable advice and we will remain in close contact with Kieran.
So we move onwards in this new chapter for Keelvar and look forward to a bright future, delivering groundbreaking innovation at speed to customers.
