Hi Pat, welcome to iCabbi! Tell us a bit about yourself…
I was a country guy at heart having moved from Kerry to Dublin when I went to college but I haven’t left since. I’m married over 12 years with two wonderful kids. I’ve worked in many companies in many different roles but working in technology companies at this growth stage is by far the most fun.

What is your background and how will it help in your new role with iCabbi?

Where do you see the taxi industry in 5 years’ time?
I think there is lots of change coming. The ways in which technology can be further applied to the mobility sector is pretty much unlimited. I think most technology advancements over the last few years can be applied in some shape or form. AI and autonomous vehicles are the next steps I guess.
What are you most likely to be doing when not in the office?
I’m an avid sports fan so when not in the office I would most likely be watching some form of sports. Other than that, spending time with my family and friends.
