Our newly admitted Fellows of the AIBF represent what’s great about Irish business. Their drive, positivity and high performance have propelled the Irish economy to new heights, and we’re privileged to be working alongside them as members of The AIBF Register of Irish Business Excellence (TRIBE).

It was thrilling to see all of the Fellows wearing their cap and gown on stage when receiving their Certificate of Fellowship. It reflects the scale of the honour which this represents, and adds to their status as leading lights of Irish entrepreneurship.
