Joe has over thirty-years’ experience in building businesses in a range of company types; multinational to start-up. With Motorola he developed and implemented plans to enter new, and recapture lost markets. Usually involving the development of new products to support plans, he led new business expansion across Europe.
As Director of Sigma Wireless he led the restructuring of the company to make it more competitive and enable new market expansion. This included rationalising manufacturing plants, company-wide business process reengineering, product development and international market access in Europe and Asia.
His start-up experience spans the licensing of Maynooth University, securing over €5 million funding and the technology development of what is now known as 5G radio technology. In the process it developed a patent portfolio of 15 patents granted in all major markets globally (Europe, USA, China and India). Taking the company through a controlled wind down, it sold its patent portfolio for several million. He now has a new start-up, Reivr Fusion, an innovative sensor technology solving location-based problems indoors.
