Niamh Bushnell is the CEO of Bushnell Solutions, a technology and marketing consulting company assisting young Irish and European companies with U.S. market entry, researching their U.S. market opportunity, honing their value proposition, making introductions to target customers and building relationships with strategic partners for funding, product development and marketing activities.
Also, Bushnell currently manages U.S. market development strategy and key client relationships for MoneyMate, a Dublin-based company which offers fund data management services to global investment banks including JP Morgan, Schroders and State Street.
A native of Cork, Bushnell earned an honors business studies degree from the University of Limerick. Prior to starting her company, she spent six years at Enterprise Ireland in New York helping Irish technology companies expand in the U.S. Since 2006 she has been engaged as a consultant by Enterprise Ireland on a number of client related projects.
Married with one son, Bushnell says, “The combination of being Irish and living in the U.S. makes me feel like I was born under a lucky star! In 1998 I was offered a job with Enterprise Ireland in New York and packed my bags immediately."
“I’d only been to New York once before the big move but it felt like a homecoming nonetheless. I’ve always maintained a close bond with Ireland. My clients are mostly Irish technology companies, so between my work and my family and friends in Dublin, Cork and Donegal I visit Ireland regularly throughout the year.”
