Lorraine McCarthy has been promoted to Chief People and Culture Officer (CPCO) at Spearline, an award-winning technology company headquartered in Skibbereen, Co Cork, and with offices in Waterford, Romania and India.

In 2018, Lorraine joined the Spearline team as HR & Operations Manager and within 12 months was promoted to CPCO and joined the executive team. Prior to her role at Spearline, Lorraine was a financial services professional with wide-ranging experience spanning 20 years in the banking industry.  As the CPCO, Lorraine is responsible for all human resource functions at Spearline as well as developing and maintaining the Spearline culture across its global offices.

This week, Spearline announced that it is introducing paid maternity and adoptive leave for 18 weeks and paid paternity leave, as of January 1, 2020.  Lorraine said: “We value our team.  Part of what attracts our team members to Spearline is the quality of life that we offer.  When their peers are commuting to and from cities in the morning and evening, our team members are enjoying their lives outside of work -– often with their families.  The introduction of paid leave for new parents gives them extra peace of mind.  This aligns with our offering that working at Spearline is conducive to greater wellbeing and a more balanced lifestyle while still achieving success.”

Kevin Buckely, Co-Founder and CEO of Spearline reiterated Lorraine’s sentiments and credited the success of the business to the company’s employees. He said: This is our way of recognising the team’s efforts for the company and the importance we place on a high standard of living.”
