Irish Development Agency publishes Park Place case study

A new case study spotlights Park Place’s partnership with Ireland.

In November 2018, Park Place Technologies opened its new EMEA Operations Centre in City Quarter, Lapp’s Quay, Cork. Park Place is investing in the creation of 70 new tech jobs over the next two years. This new investment is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.

The collaboration is spotlighted in a new IDA case study, “In a Good Place.”

“The primary attraction to opening this Operations Centre in Cork, aside from the geopolitical positioning in EMEA, is the access to the talent profile needed to support our ongoing growth,” said Nicola Buckley, Sr. VP, Advanced Engineering and Call Center for Park Place, who is an Irish native and graduate of University College Cork. “We have received great assistance from the Irish Government with on-the-ground facilitation including assistance with facility sourcing, creating networks locally, and public relations.”
