Tommy Fitzpatrick, global account director for Ireland, CBRE, will represent the firm on the Executive Committee of Host in Ireland.

As one of Ireland’s leading providers of facilities, energy and project management services, CBRE understands firsthand the tremendous benefits of the digital asset hosting ecosystem that exists in Ireland,” states Garry Connolly, president and founder of Host in Ireland. “My colleagues and I on the Executive Committee anticipate CBRE under the stewardship of the highly regarded Mr. Fitzpatrick will prove an exceptional partner by bringing its knowledge of the dynamics of the international business community to bear on our shared endeavor,” Connolly added.

Founded in 2013, with headquarters in Dublin, Ireland, and satellite offices in New York, Host in Ireland seeks to educate and make accessible digital asset hosting capabilities in Ireland to companies across the globe. Although many of Host in Ireland’s partners are competitors, they come together as a collective to provide global companies with timely and accurate information concerning why Ireland provides the services and business environment to meet their digital hosting requirements.

“U.S. and global companies seeking solutions for hosting their digital assets more securely and reliably in the EMEA region will find in Ireland a host of significant advantages, from affordable and renewable energy to an educated and talented workforce to fiscal benefits and more,” stated Fitzpatrick.

“CBRE looks forward to being an integral part of Host in Ireland’s collaborative initiative to bring international data hosting business to the country,” remarked Andrew Jay, executive director, CBRE.
