Ciarán Ó Raghallaigh is founder and chief executive officer of Fandom. He founded Fandom in 2014, having spent over a decade in the sports media and journalism industry, appearing in every major newspaper in Ireland and the UK.
Along with the insight the media provided to marketing and communications, this time coincided with a growth in new publishing platforms, social networks and Fandom was built to deliver new potential for brands, sponsors and teams to take control of their content – in a new, exciting and engaging way.
Fandom is a software platform that allows brands, sponsors and event organisers to aggregate owned and user generated social media content in a single Hub – and publish across mobile, tablet, desktop or big screen. Fandom’s Hubs, with full moderation control, can integrate seamlessly into your existing web presence and can turn fans into customers with native advertising capability and full branding options. Fandom’s customers are event organisers, marketing agencies, retail stores (brand advocate displays), sports organisations and events and media/TV (real time curation/second screen).
