Diligent Corporation, a leading modern governance company whose solutions are trusted by nearly 700,000 board directors and leaders, today announced that it is establishing its European hub in Galway, Ireland.
Diligent plans to create more than 200 local jobs in Galway across several business functions, including customer support, customer success, finance, operations, product, HR and marketing. Diligent’s investment in Galway is supported by the Irish government through IDA Ireland.
“With our new international office in Galway, Diligent is making a critical investment to accelerate our growth strategy and attract exceptional talent to our team,” said Brian Stafford, CEO and President of Diligent.
“The key to our continued success is great people who are committed to our mission of providing clients with insights and technology to power modern governance. The excellent talent available in the Galway community will support the nearly 50% of our client base located outside of the U.S., enabling us to enhance the customer experience and achieve our long-term goals. We are very pleased to establish this cross-functional office in Ireland and to be in the good company of many thriving tech companies.”
Headquartered in New York, Diligent empowers leaders to turn governance into a competitive advantage through unparalleled insight and highly secure, integrated SaaS applications.
Its technologies are trusted by some of the largest global corporations and most influential brands, where the company helps leaders build a stronger future through modern governance.
Whether it’s offering cloud-based applications to streamline the day-to-day work of board management and committees or supporting collaboration and secure information, Diligent and its employees ensure organisations have the tools they need to seize new opportunities and fuel good governance.
Diligent Corporation is backed by Insight Partners, Clearlake Capital Group, and Blackstone Group.
Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar T.D. said:
"This is great news for Galway. By choosing to establish their European hub in the county, Diligent Corporation can look forward to accessing a rich pool of talent to fill these 200 jobs this decision will create.

Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland, said, “The commitment to more than 200 new jobs by Diligent is a welcome boost to the economy of Galway and the West region. It is a huge vote of confidence in Ireland and demonstrates our continued agile and adaptable business environment at a time of unprecedented global flux due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
