Addressing the event, Action Point CEO David Jeffreys said, “We started out in this business ten years ago when the economy was flying but we all know what happened after that. We worked extremely hard throughout that period and have most definitely come out the other side but it was due to a great team, a strong vision and really supportive clients.
“It was also due to the ‘can do’ spirit of the environment we are in, in the National Technology Park, a lot of which comes from the innovation at the University of Limerick. Certainly in that period the IT ecosystem strengthened in Limerick and I see a very positive future for Action Point, and the city in general as a technology hub.” action point 10th anniversary
Commenting on the Munster Rugby partnership, Jeffreys said, “We have had an extremely positive working relationship with Munster for 5 years and the decision to extend this relationship for a further two is a very positive endorsement of what we do at Action Point. We have no doubt the province are about to embark on a new era of success and we are delighted to support them every step of the way.”
Enda Lynch, Munster Rugby Commercial & Marketing Manager added, “Action Point have been a fantastic partner to work with since they joined the Munster family five years ago. As we prepare for a new and exciting season ahead, it is wonderful to have the continued support of Action Point both as a sponsor and in supplying us with our IT requirements.”
