This week the Killarney Advertiser welcomed Business Development professional Chris Davies to their growing team.
The Killarney native, who is well connected in town, has plenty of experience of developing and executing successful sales and marketing strategies.
After graduating from Cork Institute of Technology with a degree in Business and Information Systems, Chris moved to Dublin to further his career. There he worked with Group GTI and gradireland, the number one graduate careers publishing company in Ireland and the UK.
For the past two years Chris was the Business Development Manager for Gamma Location Intelligence, a leading provider of Geographical Information Systems in Ireland. Chris recently moved home to Killarney to be closer to family and is the latest addition to the Killarney Advertiser Team, taking up the role of Business Development Manager.
Chris believes in building strong mutual relationships with clients.
“The key to success in any business environment is a strong work ethic and the ability to truly listen and understand a client’s pain, and then working hard to address their issues the best way you know how.”
Chris is also working towards a postgrad degree in digital marketing and has a great understanding of both online and offline advertising. When Chris isn’t working or studying you will find him playing football with the Killarney Legion or enjoying the outdoors with family and friends.
“I am delighted to be joining the Killarney Advertiser. Just this week the Chamber of Commerce released a survey that shows what most locals already know, the Advertiser is the the go-to publication for people looking to know what’s going on in Killarney. The Advertiser brand is synonymous with the town and to be a part of a business with such a great reputation and tradition in Killarney is very exciting. The editorial, design and sports departments in the Killarney Advertiser are second to none and we have some fantastic new media products in the pipeline for 2021. I have spent almost all of my time this week on the phone, talking to local business about the challenges they are facing with COVID-19. I am looking forward to working alongside many of these business owners and marketing managers in Killarney to create advertising strategies and campaigns that will help them navigate through these testing times.”
