Ciaran Brennan

Ciaran Brennan is co-founder & CEO of LiveCosts.com. Ciaran pins the success of LiveCosts down to one key factor, “knowledge of our customer” In his own words, Ciaran explains,

“We built a solution to a cost management problem that builders & trade contractors face daily.

We intimately understand the issue of cost. This is not a problem we have researched and decided to solve, we have lived it, felt in our own companies across Australia, UK & Ireland.

We have served in the trenches with our customers, we speak their language, we get it, thankfully our customers are choosing to remove excel and partner with us to grow their business”
