US online software firm Wrike has moved into its new EMEA headquarters in Dublin as its global footprint rapidly expands.

The collaborative work management platform is the partner of choice for 18,000 organisations, including Google, and nearly two million users across 130 countries. Founded in 2006, the Silicon Valley-headquartered firm first set up a hub in Ireland in June 2015. Dartmouth House on Grand Parade is the company's third EMEA headquarters here, established initially as part of Wrike's ambitious expansion in Europe.

Vice president of sales and general manager of EMEA Patricia DuChene has built the team - of close to 80 staff - from the ground up, with the help of the IDA. With plans to increase the workforce in Dublin by another 50 employees in the next three years, Ms DuChene said that EMEA is the company's fastest growing region.

"There is still tremendous opportunity here, in terms of talent and market share, and we are just getting started in EMEA," she said.
