Neil Pakey, CEO, Shannon Group plc
On joining Shannon Airport, I knew that working with the regional Chambers of Commerce would be of great value to our company. Effective Chambers have proved invaluable in helping airports reach out and be part of the wider business community and therefore more in touch with what businesses need. Shannon Chamber are certainly best in class from my experiences with Chambers in the UK, Ireland and further afield and the Shannon Chamber keeps ahead of current challenges and topical issues facing our Industry. I also value the close collaboration Shannon Chamber is bringing with other Chambers across the West of Ireland which helps both in our stakeholder engagement activity and in helping to shape policy priorities.
