Mary Rodgers – Chief Executive Officer
After a successful career in NY, Mary returned to Ireland in 2007 to set up Stateside Solutions. She identified a niche in the market and noticed that there were a lack of companies specializing in U.S. market entry strategy and execution for foreign owned SMEs. With her knowledge and expertise of the U.S. market and knowing what businesses need to succeed, Stateside Solutions was created; serving as a bridge for foreign owned SMEs entering the U.S.
Mary has worked with clients from Enterprise Ireland, Invest NI, and IE Singapore and runs U.S. market entry programs both on a voluntary and paid basis for companies considering entering the U.S. marketplace. “You can never be too prepared, companies need to take the time to understand both the opportunities and the cost of doing business in the U.S. Planning will lead to increased efficiency and a faster ROI.”
With offices in NY and Galway, Mary splits her time between both offices and when she has a moment to relax, she enjoys time with her husband Charlie and her daughters Lauren and Grace. firstname.lastname@example.org
