"As a Dublin native, I am excited to bring our global platform to the European market with a bit of luck from Dublin," says Conor Keane, Spring Global's President and CEO. "This move is driven largely by an evolving global retail business landscape and by our belief in providing brands the tools, expertise, and support they need to exceed their customers' expectations and remain competitive.
