The death has taken place of George Moore (62), one
of the most successful Irish-American businessmen
of his generation. Mr Moore died on Wednesday night
at his home in Virginia outside Washington DC.

A board member of the Taoiseach’s economic advisory
board, Mr Moore ran the Virginia-based marketing
technology company TargusInfo that he sold in 2011
for $650 million (€472 million).

Born in Co Louth, the son of a shoemaker, Mr Moore
had three brothers and three sisters. He left Ireland
in 1972 with two degrees from University College
Dublin to study for Masters and Doctorate business
degrees at George Washington University.

After leaving college he managed the market analysis
division of a company called CACI International in
Washington DC. He sold a business based in San
Diego called National Decision Systems in 1990
before setting up Targus Information in 1993.

Targus, which was based in the Tyson’s Corner area
of Virginia, a hub of technology and financial
businesses, provided caller identification services.
It helped clients to identify, verify and locate
customers, and grew to process about 100 billion
transactions a year, generating $149 million a year
in revenues.

Outside of this line of business, he bought into
crystal and china through Erne Heritage Holdings,
which owns Belleek China and Galway Irish Crystal,
two well-known Irish brands.

His business expertise was tapped extensively. He was
involved in the Irish Technology Leadership Group and
a board member of the Northern Ireland Trade and
Investment Council, The Flax Trust and the Trustee
of the Northern Ireland Memorial Fund.

Always quick to provide insightful advice on Ireland’s
economic recovery and a regular visitor back to his
native country, he was a participant in the Global
Irish Economic Forum.

Mr Moore’s impressive track record in business
brought him many honours. He received the
Outstanding Alumnus Award from University College
Dublin in 1991 and was awarded an honorary
doctorate in sciences by the University of Ulster
in 2006.

The following year he received an honorary CBE from
Queen Elizabeth in recognition of his contribution to
Northern Ireland’s economy.

Mr Moore died of a heart attack at his home in Great
Falls, Virginia. He is survived by his wife Angela, his
daughter Kerla (34), Gareth (30) and Ashlyn (27), and
by his grand-daughter Fiona (2).

Editor's Reflection : Our world will be unable to fill a
great chasm created by Georges passing.  His innovative
thought coupled with progressive ideals formulated a
mentor to all humanity.  His lifestyle, dedication and
enlivened humour was an inspiration to us all.  His
absence will be acknowledged in our lives.  In passing
and remembrance we commemorate our most R.I.P.
