He holds a B.A. and M.A. from the National University of Ireland Galway, and began his career as a sales representative for Guinness. “Growing up in Ireland and now living and working in the U.S. has given me the unique ability to think globally and with a broad perspective while maintaining both confidence and humility in my day-to-day life,” Niall says.
