Commidea, a European provider of electronic payment (e-payments) solutions, has established a dedicated office in Dublin, Ireland. The decision to setup a permanent physical presence reflects both Commidea’s growing success in the Irish market and its positive outlook for the market’s future growth.
The new operation will consist of a sales team headed up by Mark Mooney and Freddie Graham, and will be fully integrated with the operational, customer service and development teams based at Commidea’s UK headquarters in Ashford, Kent.
“We have a great team on board to support our growing Irish customer base and to help us take advantage of the great opportunities in the market. They have a detailed knowledge of Ireland’s retail payments market and a great focus on customer service,” said Ian Rutland, managing director at Commidea.
