Newsweaver appoints Head of Content and Corporate Communications

Global high-tech leader recruits Irish Examiner editor as part of expansion

Newsweaver, the global leader in internal communications, is delighted to announce the appointment of Tim Vaughan to the position of Head Of Content and Corporate Communications. Mr Vaughan joins Newsweaver from The Irish Examiner where he held the position of editor.

Mr Vaughan, who has extensive experience of the media and corporate communications industry will join the company in October. Newsweaver founder and CEO Andrew O’Shaughnessy, said: “I’m delighted that someone of Tim’s calibre is joining our exceptionally talented team at a time when we have very exciting ambitions for international growth.”

“He is widely respected in the media industry, and has a great track record in agenda-setting journalism at the Irish Examiner. His knowledge, experience and skillset is a perfect fit for Newsweaver as we expand our international footprint,” said Mr O’Shaughnessy.

Commenting on his appointment, Mr Vaughan said he was looking forward to joining the Newsweaver team at a very exciting time in the company's development.

"This is a great new challenge and I'm really looking forward to being part of Newsweaver's ambitious plans for expansion," he said.

Newsweaver works with some of the world’s largest corporations and best known companies, providing them with pioneering software solutions to complex employee communications challenges. Its clients include Rolls-Royce, LinkedIn, Experian, Vodafone, and GSK, among several other FTSE and Fortune 1000 companies.

International research has proven that effective internal corporate communication is a key driver of employee engagement and consequently enhanced financial performance. However, for companies with tens of thousands of employees across several continents, time zones and different languages, effective internal communications (IC) can be a complex challenge – which is where Newsweaver comes in.

The company has pioneered ground-breaking technology solutions which have overcome the complex challenges facing internal communicators.

It has invested heavily in new product development and recently unveiled a game-changer in IC technology (Cross-Channel Analytics) which for the first time enables companies easily measure internal communications performance across multiple platforms, email, intranet, video and social media all in one place.

“As well as developing pioneering technology solutions for some of the world’s biggest companies, because IC is still a relatively young sector, we also invest very heavily in thought-leadership content and research,” said Mr O’Shaughnessy. “It is a key part of our corporate strategy and the appointment of someone with Tim’s experience underpins our commitment to leading the way and pushing the boundaries in every aspect of internal communications”.

Note to editors:

The company was established by Andrew O’Shaughnessy in Cork in 1996 and is now the international market leader in the fast-growing internal communications sector, delivering communication solutions and expertise to large blue-chip corporations in 96 countries.

In December 2015, it announced the expansion of its workforce from 80 to 140, with a concentration on high value, high-tech R&D jobs at its Cork HQ to support the expansion of its global customer base. It also has offices in Boston.

It has been named one of the country’s best employers, and last year was recognized by the Irish Exporters Association as one of Ireland’s best ICT companies. It previously ranked in the top 300 fastest-growing technology companies in Europe, and the Deloitte Fast 50 for five years in a row.
