Yougetitback Names Paul Leahy Head of Global Business Development Operations

People spend hundreds of dollars to have the latest smartphones, tablets and laptops. The only problem is the nicer the device, the more likely someone is to steal it. Yougetitback (YGIB) aims to provide software to mobile clients that assist in located stolen or lost devices. The software works as a GPS when items are stolen and can also be used if the item is found to locate the proper owner.

In order to further improve customer relations, YGIB named Paul Leahy as the new leader of global business development operations. The company plans to further build relationships around the globe with mobile providers, with Leahy leading the way. His past resume experience includes Nuavita Consulting as managing director, as well as relationships with global companies such as Bank of America and CPP Group plc.

Paul Prendergast, YGIB CEO, said the new position will help strengthen relationship with “comprehensive support.” Leahy explained that he is ready to take on the new responsibility.

“I’m excited to join this dynamic company at such a pivotal point in its future,” Leahy said. “With its advanced technologies, comprehensive back-end services capabilities and market-specific focus on the warranty and insurance business, Yougetitback brings unique value to clients in this sector, enabling them to accelerate their business growth by increasing attachment rates, lowering customer churn and driving better value. I’m delighted to spearhead the business development operation at this exciting time in the company’s development.”

The company notes that global relationships are key to being a leader in their specific market. Though the company is located in Cork, Ireland, it plans to grow its customer base outside of the European Union.

Prendergast concluded, “Managing and supporting those relationships is critical to ensuring we bring the right offerings to market and that we match growth with our market potential. Paul is just the leader to achieve this and I am confident he will provide our clients with comprehensive and dynamic partnerships.”
