Michael’s heart was in Northern Ireland and he and his wife decided to return to the North Coast in 2008 to raise their two young children and to make good on his dream to start a tech company of the North Coast of Northern Ireland, Since returning Michael has started two technology companies including Instagiv which he sold in 2020 and Zymplify (originally know as Digishare 360) which he continues to develop and grow.
Zymplify was launched in 2013 as a marketing SaaS company specialising in Automated Account Based Management and Marketing Automation, Lead Onion which specialises in Buyer Intent and Zym the All-In-One-Marketing Platform. Funding for the company has come from a combination of money from Invest NI, the government venture fund, angel investors and U.S. and Belfast based venture funds intrigued by the blend of local skills and the cost-effectiveness of a Northern Ireland based company.
Michael and his wife Sandra live in Portstewart, Northern Ireland and have two young adult children who have both followed him into the high tech field. His hope is that one of them starts a company that becomes the next Paypal, Bumble or similar.
