Dave is the CEO of Boxever, a data science company that provides a predicitive marketing platform for the travel industry. Founded in 2011 with his co-founders, Dermot O’Connor and Alan Giles, Boxever employs over 50 people, with offices in Dublin and Boston. The company has raised over $7M to date and is backed by Polaris Partners.
Dave has had a successful career in startups and technology and during his time in Datalex, an airline e-commerce company, he saw a compelling need in the travel industry to enable organisations better understand the wealth of data that they had about their customers so they could improve their customer’s experience and increase revenue by creating personalised offers for customers.
Together with his co-founders, he created a cloud-based solution that uses big data and predictive analytics to determine what each customer is likely to respond to and automatically generate tailored messages and offers across any marketing channel, including web, email, mobile, call centre and even in flight.
Boxever now works with some of the largest travel brands in the world, including Air New Zealand, Edreams Odigeo and Tigerair; consistently being selected ahead of much larger vendors, because of it’s cutting edge technology platform and innovative company culture that is constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.
