Krishna Chintam, co-founder and managing director, Kellton Tech, said: “Ireland is home to one of Europe’s best multilingual, tech talent pool and will act as our springboard to make inroads into the European market and beyond. As a pioneer of digital transformation, we are the market leaders in India with strong penetration in US. We are happy to extend our expertise to the EMEA market with Ireland as our base. We believe that this region is poised to emerge as our largest revenue-contributor outside of US.”
