Gareth Quinn may be the co-founder of Digital DNA and Kairos – two very successful tech businesses from Northern Ireland – but he claims his road to success was unplanned and somewhat unexpected.
‘Scraping’ his way through school, Gareth grew up working in factories, bars and call centres before eventually landing a job with Belfast City Council.
After quickly rising through the ranks of the Lord Mayor’s Office, Quinn got to know Belfast intimately, resulting in a pride for where he lives and a desire to bring more opportunity into our city.
Eddie Irvine Sports

Just to raise the stakes a little higher, there is champagne for the race winner on the night!!
