SFA elects new National Council members

November 24, 2021

The members of the Small Firms Association gathered today at its virtual AGM to elect new members to the governing body of the association, the National Council.
Graham Byrne, SFA Chairperson and CEO of Flender said: “The Small Firms Association is pleased to announce the appointment of Aisling Hurley, founder of The Business Fairy, to the SFA National Council. Her appointment means that over 50% of the SFA National Council are female business leaders, marking an important milestone that is increasingly reflective of the broader SME community’s effort in addressing gender balance in the Irish business model.”

Re-elected to the Council were Frederika Sheppard of Voltedge Management and Geraldine Lavin of 3rdi Consulting.

Mr. Byrne added: “We also bid a fond farewell to a mainstay of the Small Firms Association National Council, Brendan Newsome of Wireropes. Brendan has been an invaluable source of help and advice to the SFA over the years. We wish him well as he steps back from the Council and thank him for all his work with the SFA over many years.”
