Long-term aims: IPO discussion a part of big plans for the future, says Intercom CEO Eoghan McCabe

Intercom CEO Eoghan McCabe has had a transformative year.

The online customer messaging company he co-founded with Des Traynor, Ciaran Lee and David Barrett 10 years ago is now considering an IPO after a steady rise in revenue and customers.

Having expanded into London and San Francisco, Ireland's only 'unicorn' tech firm is also about to move to a new Dublin office with room for 800 people, putting it on course to be the biggest Irish tech company since Iona Technologies in the dotcom boom two decades ago.
