Feargall Kenny

Executive Recruiter, Founder & President

Linkedin Profile



Feargall Kenny founded Glenborn Corporation in 2009. He has always been a connector and, with his previous background in startup sales and sales management, setting up Glenborn to focus on recruiting for the sales function with startups was a logical progression. His thought leadership for both candidates and clients alike can be seen regularly on Glenborn’s blogs and Linkedin posts.

Feargall previously served as Sales Director for innovative startups KickApps (social media), Attributor (digital content tracking) and Equinix (hosting) where he was responsible for establishing their Eastern Seaboard Presence. At BT Global Services, Feargall produced over $60m in outsourced solutions sales to leading a team of sales directors that consistently ranked highest in overall revenue performance across the Americas for 3 straight years.

Feargall also is a savvy entrepreneur and in 2005  conceived and built the innovative citizen photojournalist agency, Citizen Image. In 2012 at Glenborn, created a cutting-edge recruiting platform called Hiresignals that was built on top of Linkedin and gare candidates a secret way to declare their job search status for recruiters on that platform. LinkedIn deemed it competitive and shut it down that year and launched the same functionality as their own feature in 2016. in 2014 Glenborn launched JobElevation – a visual job search engine that is a mashup of industry ecosystems (like Luma Partners’s Lumascapes) and Indeed job listings.

Feargall is actively involved in the NY startup and Technology community. He is the founder and president of the Digital Irish Group (www.Digitalirish.com) Irish group which hosts events in NYC every 2 months, has 3500 members and has helped 180+ Irish firms with their US expansion plans. He is also co-founder of Digital Irish Angels, is a regular speaker at recruitment and sales events, and has close ties with both the NY Venure Capital Communities.

Feargall graduated from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland with a degree in Marketing and International Business. He has been in the US since 1994.
