Clodagh is a business leader, holding over two decades of experience in the tech and IT sectors.

Her career began in 1996 working in San Francisco for a Mutual Fund Company, Montgomery Asset Management. Clodagh then moved back to her home city, Dublin where she spent four years in a variety of roles for Eircom, the incumbent telecommunications provider.

In 2003, Clodagh relocated to the UK and has had a number of leadership roles in Tech & IT Services businesses, including KCOM Group PLC, where she progressed to Managing Director of Eclipse Internet and grew its business from £20m to £40m turnover.

Clodagh has also held and continues to hold, numerous Non-Executive Directorship and Chair roles in the Exeter region across a variety of industries. However, one thing that her board roles have in common is her passion for helping other budding entrepreneurs and business leaders excel in their career journeys.
