How did you get into the industry?
From 2000 to 2009, I raced professionally — and successfully — in the FIA World Touring Car Championships and FIA European Touring Car Championships where I finished second in 2006. During this time, I represented and raced professionally for several major international manufacturers including BMW, VW Group, Ferrari, and Coca-Cola.
I established No-H2O in 2007 in Dublin, Ireland with my father, Eoin O’Brien.
