Benchmark International is pleased to announce that after an exciting year of growth, we are expanding our international reach to Ireland.
The news comes after our recent announcement that Benchmark International will have a presence in South Africa, with the opening of our new Cape Town offices.
Ireland has witnessed a staggering economic turnaround as of late, with unemployment being dramatically slashed and the Bank of Ireland forecasting GDP growth of 4.8% this year, resulting in the country being named as Europe’s fastest-growing economy – for the fourth year in a row.
The office will be headed up by Pieter Joubert, who brings with him a wealth of experience within the corporate finance industry as well as international experience too, thanks to his time spent in South Africa, New Zealand and Ireland.
Joubert, Ireland Managing Director said “this is a wonderful time to be part of a company that shows no signs of slowing down, with Benchmark International having offices throughout the world, the opening of the Ireland office is just another example of the ambition and drive that this company has.”
James Thornton, Benchmark International’s Chief Operating Officer, added “the expansion into Ireland is yet another integral part of our growth plan. Ireland’s economy is in a strong position and is proving to be an attractive destination for a number of companies, with a number moving their European headquarters here.
“We are very pleased to be able to further our company by opening an office in Ireland and are excited by the opportunities that it will present.”
