Our People

About Enterprise Ireland's people

Enterprise Ireland has a team of business and specialist advisers based in Ireland, who work with colleagues located in our international office network, to help Irish companies compete for and win international sales.

Enterprise Ireland clients are assigned a Development Adviser according to their stage of development (e.g. start-up, established or high growth) and sector (e.g. food, pharmaceuticals, international services).

Other specialists work with clients to help them achieve global success, for example:

  • Technology Advisers work with companies and research institutions to develop innovation capability and to commercialise research
  • Market Advisers work directly with client companies to help them to win export sales in international markets

The Enterprise Ireland Board is responsible for setting the broad strategy and policies of the organisation. It is responsible for the system of internal financial control and oversight responsibility for its activities. The Board delegates responsibility for the implementation of these policies to the management and sub-committees in Enterprise Ireland. Board Members are appointed by the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment.
