Dara’s career in the industry began in 1989 as a Field Service Technician and he moved into a Sales Executive role with Canon in 1994. Excelling in this fast-paced sales environment, Dara was promoted to Account Manager in 1999 and from there to a Management position. Dara joined the Cantec Group in 2004 as Sales Director.
Armed with over 32 years of experience, Dara places a strong emphasis on building lasting business relationships. In his leadership of a dynamic sales team, he advocates for a full understanding of a customer’s business in order to solve process bottlenecks. His maxim of ‘Do it once and do it right!’ is frequently repeated.
Away from the office, Dara & his wife Orla are busy with family life ferrying three active boys to GAA training and swimming sessions. Summer includes trips to the beaches of Clare and Kerry for Surfing – a further bonus of living near the West Coast. In his down time, Dara indulges a passion for classic and vintage motorcycles. When time and weather permit, he escapes for a ride on one of his favourite classic bikes exploring his locality or just enjoying the time away…………bliss.
