The Business & Finance Awards, in association with KPMG Ireland, celebrated a ‘New Era of Excellence’ at Dublin’s Convention Centre on 12th April, with 1,000 of Ireland’s business, political and social leaders in attendance at the celebrations.


Here at Business & Finance we would like to thank IBEC for sponsoring the Business & Finance Awards 2021.

Speaking about the awards, IBEC CEO Danny McCoy, spoke of how important the Business & Finance Awards are.

“I think it just shows the excellence in Irish business, I think it’s truly a global footprint and I think the Irish business community having come through the crisis of the last number of years it’s great to be seeing the success stories”, he said.

It’s very exciting to be back among people and old friends and colleagues and seeing the vibrancy among the business community and the optimism for the future

The awards were the first to be hosted in person since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The night was a huge success with several familiar faces in attendance such as former Taoiseach Enda Kenny. The Business & Finance Awards celebrated its 47th year this year.

Business & Finance was launched in 1964 as Ireland’s first business magazine with the Awards programme established a decade later. The Business & Finance Awards is Ireland’s premier business awards programme and includes among its previous honorees outstanding leaders of our time across business, politics and wider society.This includes former United States President Bill Clinton, former British Prime Minister Sir John Major, former President of Ireland Mary Robinson, former Secretary-General of the United Nations Kofi Annan, President Michael D. Higgins, former ECB President Mario Draghi, former Taoiseach Enda Kenny, Senator George Mitchell, and Sir Bob Geldof, among others.

We are very much looking forward to the 2022 Business & Finance Awards.
