Ireland Gateway To Europe

Sigmar Recruitment are one of the founding companies of “Ireland Gateway To Europe”, an annual privately funded Foreign Direct Investment mission to the USA. The aim of this initiative is to attract US companies to Ireland and create jobs. Since 2011 the trade mission of 30 companies has hosted events in Chicago, Atlanta, Notre Dame, New York, Boston, San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Over 2500 US companies and advisors have attended these events which are broadcast live on NewsTalk by event patron George Hook.
The group visited London, England for teh first time in April 2017 just a week after British Prime Minister Theresa May triggered Article 50. Speakers at our London events included former Taoiseach John Bruton; Willie Walsh CEO, IAG; Bob Casey, CEO of London Irish RFC; Niamh Breslin from IDA Ireland; Dan Mulhall, Ambassador of Ireland to Great Britain; Dr. Loretta O’Sullivan, Group Chief Economist at Bank of Ireland; Denis Staunton, London Editor of The Irish Times;  Philip Wood CBE QC (hon), Special Global Counsel, Allen & Overy LLP; and Tad Becchetti, Bank of America as well as Sigmar CEO, Adrian McGennis and Sigmar CCO, Robert Mac Giolla Phádraig.
