New Role for Eoin as UK Price Comparison Site Plans to Open in Dublin
Dublin boy and Digital Marketing Institute lecturer Eoin Clarke has been appointed to a new role that will see him paving the way for a popular UK-based price comparison site to open in the Irish Republic.
Previously Head of Sales at TradeDoubler Ireland, Eoin has now been charged with establishing a foothold for uSwitch.com in Ireland and with setting up a Dublin office for search marketing agency Forward3D. Both companies are owned by the UK-based Forward Internet Group, which is keen to expand in the Irish Republic.
uSwitch.com is a free, impartial, online and telephone-based comparison and switching service, helping consumers compare prices on a host of household bills, including gas and electricity. It has been saving consumers money in the UK for over 10 years.
Forward3D is an innovative, award-winning search marketing agency. It is the UK’s fastest growing digital agency.
Eoin Clarke, Country Manager (Ireland) at Forward, says: “This is an exciting opportunity to bring a household name and a fast growing digital marketing agency to Ireland. I’m looking forward to getting them established here in Dublin so that local consumers and businesses alike can start to enjoy the benefits.
“Starting up in a recession is tough, but the timing couldn’t be better as cutting household bills will help consumers get through the recession, while being able to get the best advice and support on online search marketing strategies will help businesses to boost revenue and grow. With so many people now using the internet, Irish businesses cannot afford to ignore this important source of new customers. They need to ensure that they are making the absolute most of it and that’s where Forward3D comes in.”
Eoin was previously at TradeDoubler Ireland for just over three years where he specialised in affiliate marketing, lead generation and online partnerships. Prior to that he was part of the five man team that successfully launched NewAddress.ie – Ireland’s National Address Change Notification Service.
