Storage specialist Tintri has chosen Cork in Ireland for a location of its new EMEA technical support centre which is expected to boost the company’s European growth, it says.
Tintri also plans to hire additional staff to work in its technology hub so it is currently recruiting local talents and specialists in cloud, vistualisation and storage.
The company has explained that one of the reasons that determines Cork as an ideal location is the proximity of the two local universities and the fact that other corporations have established a growing presence in Cork.
The new centre will be run by Senior Manager Ian Redmond who joins from EMC and who will be in charge of positioning Tintri in the market across the EMEA region.
“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,” comments Doug Rich, VP of EMEA at Tintri.
