Janet, who is a CIMA Fellow, launched the forum to an audience of over 60 finance professionals and senior leaders. She outlined Moy Park’s impressive growth trajectory through the turbulent times of the financial crash to present day when it is now Northern Ireland’s largest private sector employer and part of the world’s second largest food business, JBS. Janet said: “The CIMA Business Leaders’ Forum creates a space for senior business professionals and CIMA members to come together to discuss and share views on current issues impacting the corporate environment. I am delighted to launch the Forum in Northern Ireland and I would encourage fellow members of CIMA as well as non-members to take part in future opportunities the forum presents.”
The event was chaired by the recently appointed new Head of CIMA in Ireland, Roger Acton. Leo Crawford, CEO of the BWG Group which owns the SPAR, EUROSPAR, MACE, Londis and XL franchises spoke at the Cork regional launch and NAMA CEO Brendan McDonagh spoke at the Dublin launch. Further events are planned as the forum develops.
