A lot happens at Ibec. From the events and VIP briefings we host with political and business leaders to our political engagements and campaigns we run on your behalf. Here we show some recent updates from our CEO, Danny McCoy.

Ibec welcomes Pat McCann as its new President for 2019-2020

We have a new Ibec President, Pat McCann, CEO of Dalata Hotel Group. 

It is a real privilege to have someone with Pat’s impressive credentials now stepping into the role. Pat is a leading figure in the hotel and hospitality sector in Ireland. In early 2007, he took the brave step of founding his own hotel group – Dalata – building a business of scale, which would float on the Dublin and London Stock Exchanges in 2014. He has been at the very centre of Ireland’s recovery and prosperity.


Global tax expert briefs Ibec on OECD reform process

Ibec CEO, Danny McCoy, welcomes Will Morris, PwC Deputy Global Tax Policy Leader and Chair of the BIAC Tax Committee (OECD), to give Ibec members an expert briefing and a questions and answers session on current developments in the BEPS 2 tax reform process.

Ireland has been one of the biggest beneficiaries of the BEPS 1 process at the OECD, whose impact is being felt currently in surging corporation tax receipts. The BEPS 2 process underway, however, has the potential to offer both significant threats and opportunities to Ireland’s business model.
