THREE chapters of BNI in Clare have announced the appointment of brand new leadership teams and chapter directors consisting of prominent local business people.
The highly successful Abbey, Armada and Heritage chapters welcomed Jason Coyle (CJT Motor Services), John Hogan (Hogan and Co Accountants) and Tomas McKenna (McKenna Consulting Engineers) as chapter directors, while six other local business people have assumed leading roles as membership co-ordinator and secretary treasurer respectively. The new teams will steer the networking groups in building new business and boosting the local economy through effective networking among its members.
The three BNI chapters support more than 200 jobs locally and consist of local businesses and trades, including a kinesiologist, printer and engineer. The groups have generated more than €1,700,000 in business in 2013, a record set to be broken this year under the guidance of the new leadership team.
Speaking of the new Clare leadership teams, Sandra Hart, executive director, BNI Ireland South and West said , “I would like to welcome the new leadership teams and look forward to working with each of them over the coming months. These local business people have an important role in building their networking group and attracting new business for themselves and their fellow members. Regardless of the national economy, I believe local networking groups can contribute hugely to the continued growth of the local Clare economy. We welcome any local business people who would like to come along to one of our meetings to find out more about BNI and how they can grow their business.”
