Irish Chamber

2018 Finalist - SiteMinder

Irish Australian Business Awards Peoples Choice 2018

One month ahead of its 10-year milestone, the global hotel industry’s leading cloud platform, SiteMinder, announced in August 2016 it would be opening an office in Galway, Ireland, to support its then-20,000 hotel customers globally. The office would complement SiteMinder’s existing EMEA headquarters in London to service hotels both within the region and around the world, and to form the company’s sixth office alongside its Sydney head office, Bangkok, Dallas and Cape Town.

Within three months, SiteMinder had created 100 jobs for multilingual sales, customer support and onboarding professionals in Galway, and it has expanded further since to support a customer base that now consists of more than 30,000 hotels located in 160 countries globally. Today it is one of the few technology providers servicing the entire EMEA region from Galway, and is proud to be an enabler of both internationalisation and exciting career opportunities for local talent.

SiteMinder’s exponential growth over the years has seen it become a recognised leader not only within the hospitality and travel industry, but indeed within the broader technology and business scene. The company has been ranked by venture capital firm H2 Ventures and specialist lending provider Investec as among the 20 greatest pioneering technology companies to come out of Australia and New Zealand, to be at the leading edge of the ‘ideas boom’ and drivers of the economy of the future.

It is SiteMinder’s continued success and relentless pursuit of growth that saw its Sydney head office honoured with a welcome from President Michael D. Higgins, Sabina Higgins, Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald and IDA Ireland CEO Martin D. Shanahan in October 2017, as part of the President’s State Visit to Australia.

For these reasons and more, as detailed within this submission, SiteMinder is undoubtedly a worthy winner of an Irish Australian Business Award.
