Denis is a life-long entrepreneur. As a young Irish teenager, he founded multiple service-based businesses, charting and tracking growth on his first home computer: the Commodore 64.
After studying Business and Hospitality, Denis started his career in operations where he found himself organizing technology requirements. He eventually transitioned into IT and never looked back.
Denis worked for Hotel Information Systems (HIS), the leading software provider in the Hospitality Industry. He spent 2 years working on the opening project for EuroDisneyland, now Disneyland Paris. In 1994, he moved to HIS corporate headquarters in San Francisco where he helped build one of the first “Middleware” solutions. Denis went on to build the HIS integration team and manage network implementations for customers.
In 1998, he went to work for Disney Theme Parks and Resorts where he managed Hospitality and Sales applications, and later, Supply Chain and Logistics.
Denis was introduced to Salesforce.com in 2006. He was so intrigued by the technology and its ability to customize that he returned to his entrepreneurial roots, started Veltig Consulting, and joined the Salesforce Partner program. Watching Salesforce.com grow and adopt new technology has been an endless source of inspiration. And as Salesforce.com has grown, so has Veltig. Denis grew his 2-man shop to a 20-employee team.
During winter weekends you’ll find Denis watching football, particularly USC and the Seahawks. He’ll use any excuse to plan a trip to Ireland to visit family and friends. As an aviation enthusiast and former recreation helicopter pilot, you can sometimes find him watching large jets leave LAX and slowly climb over the pacific. Connect with him on LinkedIn.
