Lifford entrepreneur Brian Rooney has been named AIBF Donegal Business Person Of The Year by the All-Ireland Business Foundation.

Brian is the Founder of BR Mechanical Pipework, a fire sprinkler fitting company that installs mechanical services and fire sprinkler systems throughout Ireland, UK and Europe.

Brian has built a thriving business from the ground up and inspires his team with a lead-by-example approach to projects.

Brian’s dedication to quality and operational excellence is well known in the construction industry and his business has grown steadily off the back of referrals and excellent reviews.

He has been recognised with Donegal Business Person Of The Year Accreditation for his contribution to quality and standards in his industry.

Business All-Star Accreditation is an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses, based on rigorous selection criteria.

The Accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation, whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr Briga Hynes of the University of Limerick and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics.

Reacting to the announcement, BR Mechanical Pipework Owner Brian Rooney said:

I am delighted to share that I have been named AIBF Donegal Business Person Of The Year by the All-Ireland Business Foundation. This prestigious accolade recognises the BR Mechanical Pipework team’s commitment to quality and standards for the benefit of our customers. For me this accolade acknowledges the strength of our team - without my colleagues, I would not have been able to achieve it. I would like to thank them for their support and acknowledge our fantastic clients.

Deputy Chair on the Adjudication Board Kieran Ring, said in support of the announcement: “Brian Rooney Founder BR Mechanical Pipework has achieved All-Star Donegal Business Person Of The Year 2022 Accreditation. The Accreditation is in recognition of Brian Rooney’s outstanding contribution to quality and standards in his industry. Furthermore, we wish to recognise Brian Rooney and BR Mechanical Pipework’s conduct in the areas of Trust, Commitment, Performance & Customer Centricity. BR Mechanical Pipework is hereby included in the AIBF Register Of Irish Business Excellence for the second year in a row.”

Managing Director of the All-Ireland Business Foundation Kapil Khanna said the accreditation, which is now held by over 500 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards but have nothing to measure them by.

He said: “We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business goes through at least two interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics.”

The All-Ireland Business Foundation (AIBF) is an autonomous national accreditation body tasked with enterprise development and the promotion of Best-in-Class in Irish business.

The Foundation actively engages and supports its network through peer dialogue, collaboration, mentoring and enterprise development activities. Companies are qualified for accreditation by completing an enterprise audit and are identified by their use of the AIBF’s Business All-Star Marque.
