US technology company Salesforce has officially opened its new Dublin offices in a move described by the Taoiseach as a “significant moment” for the marketplace medan technology sector in Ireland.
Leo Varadkar today attended the official opening of ‘Salesforce Tower Dublin’ on North Wall Quay.
In February, Salesforce said it would cut around 200 jobs in Ireland as part of global layoffs. At the time, the company employed around 3,000 people here.
“We are just out the other side of that now with just under 200 job cuts in Ireland but there are still nearly 3,000 people in Ireland and all of us located now in this amazing office,” said Carolan Lennon, Country Leader, Salesforce Ireland.
Ms Lennon said that Salesforce had a long term commitment to Ireland.
“We have tonnes of amazing customers, we continue to innovate so Salesforce is going to be in Ireland for a very long time,” she said.
“2023 is still unpredictable for all businesses , if you look what is going on in the world, coming out of the pandemic, political unrest,” she said.
“I think there is still a lot of uncertainty but what we are hearing from CEOs is that it is all about digital transformation, it is all about using AI, data and automation to get more efficient and drive growth,” she stated.
