Irish Exporters Association re-elects Colin Dunne, Joint Managing Director of International Warehousing & Transport (IWT) as 2024 President

The Irish Exporters Association has re-elected Colin Dunne, Joint Managing Director of global logistics company, International Warehousing & Transport (IWT), as its 2024 President. Colin has been an active member of the IEA’s National Council since 2014 and has brought a wealth of industry experience with him to the IEA Presidency, having been at the forefront of the challenges facing exporters and importers for many years.

Irish Exporters Association, Chief Executive, Simon McKeever commented:

“This year may be difficult for international trade with exporters facing a plethora of challenges including global conflict, worldwide supply chain disruptions and ongoing issues arising from the UK’s departure from the European Union. With that, membership engagement will remain paramount to the work that we do. We are continuously working to develop member focused services which ensure that businesses get the support they need throughout their trade journey. I am steadfast that Irish exporters will continue to drive economic growth in Ireland and lead the way on the many issues impacting businesses during the year to come.

Colin is a proven and recognised leader in his field and has been a stalwart President to the Irish Exporters Association. His experience and insight will no doubt prove to be an invaluable asset to the work of the IEA this year. In what will be another busy year for Irish exporters, Colin will continue to be an excellent President.”

2024 President of the Irish Exporters Association, Colin Dunne commented:

“I am honoured to have been re-elected as President of the Irish Exporters Association for the next 12 months. I take great pride in being the first President of the IEA from the Logistics and Supply Chain sector. The mantra for my presidency has been and will continue to be, “stronger together”. Being a business owner can, at times, be a solitary place, feeling you must face challenges alone. Hence this Association has never been more relevant. It is a valuable source of assistance, advice, training, education, visa, and legislation services.

Keeping the concerns of Irish exporters front and centre with decision makers is crucial to ensure we remain competitive globally – and this priority will remain a cornerstone of my presidency. Nurturing a collaborative approach with Government will only help to further insights and investments to the benefit of businesses and the supply chain.”
