Tralee, 26th February 2021 – Leading Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) technology provider ViClarity have today announced that, twelve year old regulatory compliance consulting firm, PolicyWorks, LLC, headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa, will rebrand under the ViClarity
name, effective today. According to ViClarity Founder, European CEO and Global CIO, Ogie Sheehy, the rebrand will enable the organisations to build upon the solid foundation they have set in place over the last twelve months and will help drive growth globally through the combination of leading edge technology and consulting expertise.
“Just over a year ago today we merged with PolicyWorks and the combination of strengths has seen us form a very successful relationship over the last twelve months. Despite a tough year the team has grown from our Irish Headquarters and it will continue to do so as we grow our global
footprint. This rebrand is very exciting as we adopt one global brand name to continue to provide industry leading technology and services to the financial, healthcare and other sectors globally.“
Twelve months ago, ViClarity and PolicyWorks announced their strategic merger, combining ViClarity’s award winning technology with PolicyWorks team of regulatory experts and consultants. The ViClarity GRC platform was developed in 2008 and is led by ViClarity European CEO and Global CIO Ogie Sheehy, who continues to drive innovation of the technology platform, as well as ViClarity’s European business from Tralee Co Kerry. By adopting a global brand identity, PolicyWorks and ViClarity have fully committed to the integration of both teams.
Alongside the PolicyWorks legal and brand name change, will be the launch of viclarity.com. The new global website will house frequently updated content, including GRC and healthcare related insights and recommendations. ViClarity Global CEO Miriam De Dios Woodward notes that the new brand is better aligned with the firm’s expanded subject matter expertise in Governance, Risk and Compliance, as well as its focus on technology solutions for GRC professionals.
“Organisations across industries, have begun to realise the benefit of bringing the traditionally disparate functions of governance, risk and compliance together,” said De Dios Woodward. “GRC as a cohesive force has also created a need for cross-functional technology to drive greater
transparency, efficiency and access to real-time data. This is precisely what we deliver through the ViClarity GRC platform and our GRC services”
ViClarity was founded in 2008 and merged with U.S. based compliance consulting firm, PolicyWorks, LLC, in 2020. Today, we are one ViClarity, a global RegTech organisation headquartered in Tralee, Co Kerry and with offices in Des Moines, Iowa and Boston in the US.
