Message from Chris Chidley - Managing Director, Compass Group Ireland
This honour is in recognition of a great business, and a committed team of people who deliver over and above for our customers, on a daily business. Thank you to the All- Ireland Business Foundation for this accolade, which I must dedicate to the entire Compass Group team.
The pandemic challenged businesses everywhere, and I am proud of how we all pulled together, to get businesses back moving, and to help reboot local economies. Now there is the challenge of the post-Brexit era, and the urgent need to ensure that trade, both north/ south and across the Irish sea, is not hampered. Britain and Ireland are close neighbours and economic partners, to the tune of more than €1 billion in goods and services annually.
We must trust our political leaders to find a compromise that is workable so that ordinary people’s lives and livelihood are not impacted. Thank you so much for this unique honour, which has boosted the Compass Group team immensely, and thank you to the AIBF also for the important role in supporting Irish enterprise development.
