Daithi O’Connor was born and grew up in Galway, where he also established his business. The youngest of six boys, he always worked as a teenager. From making the tea on a building site, pulling pints or fishing salmon on his cousin’s half decker, O’Connor went straight from boarding school into a bank and spent a number of years working in finance and management.
Eventually, in 2005, he set up his own financial services company, DC Atlantic Investments Ltd, which enjoyed great success. However, he was always on the lookout for another different challenge and during the recession, as demand for financial services fell, he looked for a project that he could grow that had an export angle.
In 2010, Revive Active was created with a vision to design, develop, manufacture and market cutting-edge super food supplements. The company now employs 16 people, with six products currently on the market.
The range of Revive Active products is available in more than 1,000 health food stores and pharmacies across Ireland, as well as in 60 exclusive stores in London. Outside of retailers, Revive Active sells online to customers in Ireland, UK, the rest of Europe, the United States, Australia and the rest of the world, delivered to the customer’s door free of charge.
