How we're governed

Meet Ibec's board members, a group of highly experienced industry chief executives who challenge and guide our business.

Chaired by Eugene McCague, the board is essential to our growth as an organisation and their expert advice, guidance and advocacy provides a strong foundation for our work. The group is made of Ibec Executive Directors (CEO and Deputy CEO) and non Executive Directors being seasoned CEOs representing key industry sectors of the Irish economy. Collectively, they oversee Ibec’s organisational strategy and governance, and ensure we are operating effectively as a not for loss organisation and delivering on our mission. 

The board meets a minimum of six times a year.
