Irish Exporters Association appoints IWT’s Colin Dunne as new President for 2023

The Irish Exporters Association (IEA) has announced Colin Dunne, Joint Managing Director of global logistics company International Warehousing & Transport (IWT), as its President for 2023. Colin has been an active member of the IEA’s National Council since 2014. Having been at the forefront of the challenges faced by Irish exporters and importers for many years, he brings substantial experience to the IEA Presidency. 

Commenting on the appointment, Simon McKeever, Chief Executive, Irish Exporters Association said: “Colin is a recognised leader in his field and his experience and insights will no doubt support the efforts of the IEA over the coming year. He has been a member of our National Council for 8 years and not only represents IWT but also the broader Irish logistics and supply chains sector. 2023 shows a lot of promise for Irish exporters. We are a growing organisation and through hard work and innovation, we are continuously developing solutions to assist our members in the transition towards more sustainable trade, market diversification and trade compliance, not to mention the growing competitive issues we face in our economy and the ever-lingering effects of Brexit and a declining UK. I am in no doubt Colin will be an excellent President in what will be another busy year for trade in Ireland.”

Colin Dunne, 2023 President of the Irish Exporters Association added: “It is a privilege to be appointed President of the Irish Exporters Association for the next 12 months. I look forward to using my role as President to support the IEAs ongoing engagement with Government and leading stakeholders to emphasise the role Irish exporters must play in promoting Ireland abroad. While the global economy will continue to face challenges, it is important that we do not lose focus in meeting the long-term strategic issues we face as an Association, particularly in promoting more sustainable practices in international trade.”
