Core Systems is proud to announce it is one of eight businesses from Northern Ireland selected as a DIT Export Champion by the Department for International Trade

The Department for International Trade (DIT) helps UK businesses export globally by promoting and financing international trade and investment.

Patricia O’Hagan, CEO of Core Systems, is one of eight business leaders from across the country to be appointed as Northern Ireland’s first-ever Export Champion.

The Rt. Hon Chris Heaton-Harris MP, The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland congratulates the new Export Champions from Northern Ireland

The chosen leaders represent a variety of key sectors in Northern Ireland’s economy, including food and drink, technology and manufacturing. Each Champion will help DIT to promote the benefits of exporting and encourage other companies across Northern Ireland in selling to overseas markets. The leaders will participate in DIT events, sharing their export stories and experiences of breaking into new markets.

Due to their record of successful international trade, the leaders are volunteering as champions for DIT. Exporting has made a positive impact to their companies and they will share these experiences through the DIT Export Champion program.

“I am delighted that Core Systems has been chosen as one of Northern Ireland’s first-ever Export Champions. This is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the potential that exists for Northern Ireland businesses to sell products and services across the globe.

Core Systems has engaged with DIT for many years and our technology is currently used in correctional facilities in countries including Australia, Denmark and the USA. I hope to encourage businesses in Northern Ireland who haven’t yet begun to export to take the plunge.”

Patricia O’Hagan, CEO and Founder of Core Systems

Since Core Systems broke into the US market, it is now a world leader in providing prisoner self-service technology to countries across the globe. Core Systems solutions support people in the criminal justice system by improving access to information, communications and other services.
