Business leaders gathered in Dublin on Wednesday as Business & Finance launched its CEO 100 edition, proudly sponsored by AIB Private Banking and Principle Connections.

This year’s Business & Finance CEO 100 is a who’s who of Irish business life, from established veterans to ambitious newcomers. Showcasing Ireland’s most influential CEOs, the Business & Finance CEO 100 edition profiles leading business leaders and the successes they have had throughout their careers.

Speaking at the event, Ian Hyland, CEO and publisher of Business & Finance said: “The Business & Finance CEO 100 listing identifies the leaders of this diverse community, recognises their endeavours and we hope its publication will play a part in fostering even greater connectivity between these CEOs in all sectors across the Irish, and indeed global business community.”

Richard Moat, CEO of eir (the former eircom) was honoured on the night. eir recently pulled off a high-profile multi-million euro rebranding and renaming exercise.

Speaking about the rebranding Moat said: “The new eir identity is dynamic and modern. It reflects our real ambition to become just that, a dynamic and progressive Irish organisation providing the high quality infrastructure and services the country needs and deserves. We are proud of our history and our origins, but the time is right to modernise.”
