We have engaged Ciara on a number of projects since 2007 - the Volvo Ocean Race stopovers in Galway in 2009 and 2012 and more recently Volvo Cork Week and Volvo Round Ireland Race.

Ciara project manages a number of sponsor activation programmes for us. She is involved from the concept stage of through to execution and at all times, she acts as the key link between organisers, associated dealers and suppliers for Volvo.

For the Volvo Ocean Race stopovers Ciara project managed our pre event projects countrywide across all Volvo dealerships and had the responsibility of co-ordinating our corporate hospitality activities on shore, our accommodation requirements across a number of hotels, and our on-water Corporate Hospitality programme at both Galway stopovers. Ciara helped us to effectively manage the event including the logistics of hiring a number of charter ferries for our VIP hospitality, work closely with the Galway Harbour Company and the management team in Let's Do It Galway.

Ciara is a real pleasure to work with - no challenge is ever too big for her! She has the ability to get the best from people and is a dedicated part of our team. Ciara comes with a positive attitude, a can do approach to everything and excellent project management administration and co-ordination skills.

Ciara will continue to work with Volvo Car Ireland on all of our sailing projects into the future.
