CORK, IRELAND. – February 19, 2014 – Tintri, the leading producer of storage for virtualisation and cloud environments, has announced it has chosen Cork in Ireland as the location for its EMEA technical support centre, to propel its European growth.
“The opening of the technical support centre ensures that we are well placed to provide support to our rapidly increasing EMEA client base. It also allows us to support our existing value added channel and distribution partners including Espion and Hibernia Evros,” said Doug Rich, VP of EMEA at Tintri.
The local universities, University College Cork (UCC) and Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) make Cork an ideal location for the EMEA support office. The universities generate a pool of local technical talent. Many large technology companies also have technical headquarters or a presence in Cork. The high concentration of world-leading technology companies in a relatively small location makes Cork a fitting location to network and do business.
Rich continued: “Since its formation, Tintri has steadily grown and now employs nearly 200 globally. This growth, particularly in Europe, has highlighted the need for a dedicated EMEA customer support team and Cork, with its wealth of technical resources seemed like the ideal location. Communication is key and we pride ourselves on the support we offer our customers. Over the next 12 months we plan to grow the team by 50%, which means the team at Cork will play a crucial role in our future expansion within EMEA.”
At the helm of Tintri’s EMEA support centre is Senior Manager, Ian Redmond. Redmond, former Support Manger at EMC, is responsible for increasing awareness of Tintri’s offerings and positioning the company as a challenger in the EMEA storage market.
