This episode features Steve Cutler, CEO Icon plc, in conversation with Sarah Freeman, Managing Editor of Business & Finance.

Icon, the The Dublin-founded clinical trials company which employs more than 1,000 people in the Republic won the prestigious Company of the Year award at the 2021 Business & Finance Awards ceremony. The company is a global provider of drug development solutions and services to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries. It was established in 1990 by Dr John Climax and Dr Ronan Lambe.

Ian Hyland, Publisher, Business & Finance, congratulated the winners, saying: 

“This year’s Business & Finance Awards is one of the most important milestones in the context of recognising great business leaders and leadership teams along with truly inspirational political and social leaders in Hank Paulson and John & Pat Hume. This is a time that leadership in business can directly and positively impact society more than ever. While the past two years may have been most challenging for Irish business, this year’s business awards winners have proven that true innovators will not be suppressed regardless of the challenges thrown at them.”
