Tegus is the Business & Finance FDI of the Month for November 2021 with its decision to create up to 100 jobs in new Irish EMEA headquarters

Tegus has announced that it will create up to 100 jobs in Waterford over the next two years, following the establishment of its EMEA headquarters in the city. The Chicago-headquartered company was founded in San Francisco in 2017 by twin brothers, Michael and Thomas Elnick. 

Tegus has become a prominent business and market intelligence platform for key decision makers through its large and comprehensive database of primary and market information. The new EMEA HQ will enable Tegus to expand on its more than 1,000 customers by supporting more international companies on the platform and providing an even stronger customer experience. Tegus is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland. 

Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar TD said, “I’m really happy Tegus has chosen Waterford for its new EMEA HQ. This will result in the creation of up to 100 new jobs in the city.  This is great news for the South-East and a real boost for Waterford City and once again demonstrates we have the skills and talent available in all parts of the country to attract foreign direct investment.”

I’m really happy Tegus has chosen Waterford for its new EMEA HQ.

The new EMEA HQ will occupy a state-of-the-art co-working office space in Boxworks until it selects a permanent location in Waterford City. The announcement is expected to attract talent from around Waterford and the wider South-East region.

“We are seeing more and more institutional investors and corporations incorporating qualitative and primary research into their processes to make better and faster decisions”, said Thomas Elnick, Founder and Co-CEO of Tegus. “As we expand internationally, we are relentlessly focused on delivering an incredible user experience and product for our customers. Ireland provides us with the perfect entry point to EMEA to support our growing global customer base and align our team with our customers’ success.”

David Cashman, Vice President of EMEA at Tegus highlights, “Our people are our greatest asset, always. Personally, I know Waterford boasts great talent, now we can offer global level tech jobs to the amazing local talent. We look forward to building the Tegus brand in Waterford as one of the premier tech companies to build and grow your career.”
