MarketStar, the global leader in outsourced sales and B2B revenue acceleration, has secured a new facility for their EMEA headquarters in Dublin. The company plans to create up to 300 new jobs over the next 3 years, bringing its Dublin-based team to 500 people by 2025. The commitment to this larger presence in Dublin further strengthens MarketStar’s international capabilities and delivery model built for clients that are focused on growth and scaling globally.
Founded in 1988, MarketStar now employs more than 1,750 employees worldwide, with its global headquarters in Ogden, Utah U.S.A. In 2019, MarketStar acquired Product2Market, a leading Irish inside sales and sales development agency based in Dublin. The expansion of the European headquarters in Dublin, following the integration of Product2Market, has positioned MarketStar as a strong global leader in sales and revenue acceleration, and a business destination for Dublin’s talented workforce. At the time of the P2M acquisition, there were 100 employees in Dublin. Since that time, MarketStar has doubled the number of jobs and revenue based in Dublin. The company joins world-leading brands like SalesForce, Bank of America, Mastercard, and others in the Central Park community, which also includes apartments, retail space, dining, and lodging.
Welcoming the announcement Tánaiste and Minister of Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar TD said, “this is fantastic news from MarketStar, I am happy the company has found a home in Dublin’s Central Park for its new EMEA Headquarters and will be creating an incredible 300 new jobs over the next 3 years. It is a remarkable expansion that will bring the company’s total workforce here to 500 by 2025. MarketStar is a global leader in its field, and this new HQ will provide a great platform to highlight our highly skilled workforce to the world. I wish the team every success with their new Dublin office.”
Keith Titus, President, and CEO of MarketStar, said, “establishing Dublin as our EMEA headquarters marks an exciting milestone in our overall growth strategy, solidifying our commitment to the European market and strengthening our global sales capabilities. We will continue to thoughtfully expand our global footprint, and this new Central Park facility enables MarketStar to work from a position of strength in the European market to enable growth for our clients and employees.”
Jonathan Blythe, Vice President, Head of EMEA at MarketStar, said, “there is no better expansion point for our global Operation than right here in Ireland. We have people representing 38 nationalities, speaking twenty different languages, and covering three regions. When you combine the level of talent available in Ireland with the vision and financial commitment provided by MarketStar, we see nothing but growth and expansion for our great workforce and the companies we do business with. It’s an exciting time to be with MarketStar in Dublin.”
