New President of British-Irish Chamber of Commerce

John Cronin (pictured) of McCann FitzGerald, one of Ireland’s premier law firms, has been elected as President of the British-Irish Chamber of Commerce. As the sixth President of the Chamber, John Cronin succeeds outgoing President, Eoin O’Neill, becoming the first solicitor to be appointed to the role.

John is a former Chairman/Managing Partner of McCann FitzGerald and is currently the head of the firm’s Brexit Group. His many years of experience providing legal and strategic advice to corporate and financial institutions and State agencies across a variety of sectors means that he is well placed to continue the work of promoting the valued trade relationship between Ireland and the UK, particularly in the face of Brexit. John is also a non-executive director of building materials group, Kingspan Group Plc.

Commenting after his election, John said: “The maintenance of focus on the value of the two- way trade between Ireland and the UK is key to the Chamber and we wish to play a role in shaping a successful future for such trade irrespective of Brexit and its possible outcomes.”

The British Irish Chamber of Commerce is a private sector trade organisation, founded in 2011 to represent businesses and employers with interests in the two islands of Great Britain and Ireland. The Chamber’s mission is to highlight, protect and grow the trade between Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England. That trade is worth over €1.2 billion a week or €65 billion a year and it supports 400,000 jobs, about evenly between the two islands.
