Finding Leaders that Find True Start-up Potential


Whether it’s setting up a new indigenous business from grass roots or expanding the footprint of a large scale multinational corporation into Ireland, identifying and attracting exceptional leadership talent is an essential and important milestone on the journey to success.

Irrespective of industry or business type, people are not the most valuable asset of the start-up business, rather the right people are!  Principal Connections holds extensive experience and deep insights to share in overcoming the unique challenges inherent in the recruitment of senior, executive and board members necessary to offer instant impact and drive forward the evolution of the start-up to ramp-up.

For the vast majority of senior leaders, joining an organisation in it’s infancy will carry risk. Principal Connections context led approach to executive search and selection is ideally suited to unveiling candidates with the track record and more importantly the shared vision, motivation and passion to realise true start-up potential.

Principal Connections is ideally positioned to serve the 360 leadership talent requirements of IDA Ireland or Connect Ireland’s Foreign Direct Investment organisations.
