Damien McGovern Founder
I founded Compliance & Risks in 2000, and developed the idea for our innovative product C2P from my experience in the area of legal compliance. Before I founded C&R, I did regulatory intelligence work in Brussels where I worked for 7 years at Deloitte in tax and legal. On the rare occasions I'm not thinking about compliance, I'm running on the beach with Ballybee the family dog, ridding the roses of greenfly, weeding, playing golf and getting ready to sail.
