Following a Computer Science degree from Trinity College, Áine served in senior executive and board director positions in public and private companies, including The SCO Group, NewworldIQ, Prudential UK and Accenture. In these roles she gained extensive global experience launching new products, business units, and joint ventures. Áine then discovered the world of SaaS start-ups and spent 14 years building the global B2B SaaS business she co-founded, called Altify. There she and the team created best practices, methodology and technology to help sales teams consistently increase revenue. Áine’s insight in establishing and growing Altify was informed by many years’ previous experience in enterprise software, business development, operations, and customer engagement. Following the company’s successful acquisition in 2019 by Upland Software (UPLD), Áine exited the organisation. Áine is a credentialed coach, holds a Dip IoD, and was named in Ireland’s top 30 women in tech for 2021. With a strong belief in giving back, Áine is a long-standing volunteer Lead Entrepreneur for Going for Growth and Back for Business, and serves on the boards of Technology Ireland and the Irish Writers Centre.
