Gerry McKenna - talks about the growth of the Irish Software Industry, the impact of the Border, Logica Aldiscon and Cation Chatbots

October 6, 2021

We’re delighted to have Gerry McKenna on the podcast this week.

Gerry has worked in the Software Industry since he graduated, both Internationally and in Ireland.  He’s probably best known for being the CEO of Logica Aldiscon during the fast growth days.

What’s very interesting about Gerry’s story are his reflections on the changes in the Software Industry in Ireland from the days of emigration to the current maturity and sophistication of the industry.

Gerry grew up in Monaghan near the Border and he tells how that situation affected everyone’s outlook and how, with the Peace Process and the Single Market, the National introversion turned to an extroversion and growth in confidence.

Gerry has a lot of fun and interesting stories about the growth of Logica Aldiscon and there is one in particular that I know you will find amazing.

Gerry is currently CEO of Cation and they are a provider of, as he says, the best Chat Bot available for Customer Service.

Thanks to Gerry for being a great guest and in the scope of his career he shows how things have turned out for the better for the Industry and the Country.
