Technology of the future will be born in Nenagh.

That’s the promise of the man who’s in charge of setting up First Data’s Research Development and Innovation centre in the Stereame Business Park.

The Fin-tech giant is set to create 300 jobs locally and they have now opened a recruitment office in the North Tipp town.

Vice President of Strategy and Programmes Pete Kennedy says First Data workers in Nenagh will be on the front line in developing new technologies.

He says Nenagh will deliver cutting edge technology including machine learning, artificial intelligence and possibly virtual reality.

This will not just for Ireland and Europe but hopefully for the global market.
