Details of the 2019 Irish Times Business Awards have been released and the event is scheduled to take place in the Round Room at the Mansion House on Wednesday, May 8th.
This is the second year of the gala black-tie event which is run in association with KPMG.
According to Liam Kavanagh, Managing Director of The Irish Times, “this year’s Business Awards would build on last year’s very successful inauguration and continue to reflect the high standard of business leadership talent in this country.”
Siobhan Talbot of Glanbia was recipient of the inaugural Irish Times Business Person of the Year award at the 2018 ceremony. The Business Person of the Year is chosen from the pool of monthly winners, as decided by The Irish Times business editorial team. Most recently, Denis O’Sullivan from Gas Networks Ireland was announced the winner of the December accolade, for his efforts in securing €100 million in long term funding for the company.
Other awards presented on the night will include Deal of the Year, Company of the year, and the ‘Top 1000’ Distinguished Leader in Business Award, which last year honoured Mark FitzGerald of Sherry FitzGerald for his innovative leadership and success during his 35 years at the helm of the company.
“These awards are all about recognising great leadership and exceptional performance. The outstanding individuals and teams operating in so many of Ireland’s businesses make the awards incredibly competitive and we’re really looking forward to the culmination of the programme in a few months’ time” said Shaun Murphy, Managing Partner, KPMG in Ireland.
Cathriona Hallahan, Managing Director at Microsoft Ireland, heads up the judging panel, which will gather in Microsoft HQ in April, tasked with the challenge of selecting winners across 5 categories, in what has been another momentous year for Irish Business.
