DUBLIN, March 31, 2022 – ClickUp, the world’s only all-in-one productivity platform, has today announced multiple new senior hires across EMEA as demand in the region soars by 233%.

Being purposeful with diversity, equality and inclusion are evident in its hiring approach (with most of the new leadership appointments being female).

She will be based in the UK and will lead the growing EMEA team in building ClickUp’s trust and credibility across the new markets.
“We’ve wasted no time in getting our core EMEA leadership team setup, bringing in exceptional talent who drive results whilst maintaining a focus on our core value of “have fun, find joy and be you”,” said Amber Coster, VP EMEA Operations at ClickUp. “We already have a solid base of employees in the region, with team members spread across Europe. We are employing the best people for the job and leveraging ClickUp to ensure our teams are hyper-productive when not co-located. We’re deeply committed to building the business with collaboration, culture and community at the heart of it.”

He joins ClickUp from eDesk where he was Chief Revenue Officer, leading its BDR, Sales and Success teams to achieve triple digit ACV growth. Richard will be building the team at ClickUp’s new Dublin HQ to help drive exceptional growth in the region.
“Many of our European customers were early adopters of the ClickUp platform, showing the creative and dynamic approach EMEA companies have towards increasing their teams’ productivity and providing the most incredible foundation for us to build upon,” says Richard McGuinness, VP EMEA Sales. “EMEA companies are used to succeeding across borders, time zones and cultures – and ClickUp wants to showcase how teams can succeed in the new post-Covid workplace.”
