Our increased capacity will allow us to work with more local EDO’s as well as more effectively service European clients who are naturally focussed and attracted to North America as a major source market for Trade and Investment. Spencer’s experience and leadership skills, knowledge of the US market and senior level relationships with major corporates across the US makes him the ideal candidate to help us scale up our operations and enhance delivery on client projects.” Spencer Mahony commented, “I am delighted to have the opportunity to lead the expansion of OCO Global in North America. My international EDO experience gives me a strong understanding of the challenges of OCO Global’s clients and I am looking forward to developing innovative economic development approaches that harness data driven business intelligence, such as that provided by OCO Global’s Velociti software.”
