Seán Gallagher – Independent Irish Presidential Candidate 20111534876

In April 2011 when I started my Presidential campaign there was only one person I wanted as my Campaign Director, Cathal Lee.

Cathal brought with him experience, expertise and above all, a formidable strategic focus.  This helped us build an entire campaign from scratch. He helped built a team, consisting mostly of volunteers, and empowered them to take on the might of the political establishment.

Cathal was instrumental too in helping to sketch out a road map that would help me secure an independent nomination.  His ability to turn challenging situations into opportunities became one of the hallmarks of our campaign.

While ultimately we did not emerge victorious we did, in fact, run one of the most dynamic and effective campaigns in political history.   I am indebted to Cathal Lee for his skill, determination and commitment in helping to make it so.

Cathal Lee is a consummate professional.  He combines the qualities of being commercially focused with understanding the value of people.

Cathal has the ability to identify the business needs of an organisation.  Through his vast networks he finds the correct path and people to enhance any commercial development. He does this in an understated manner which belies his intellect and strategic ability.
I would not have any hesitation in recommending Cathal to any company. I can confirm that CIET is all the better from having met him on our recent journey.
