Dr. Ciaran Byrne

I have a proven record of achievement and delivering change at the highest level, and a unique combination of scientific, governance, financial, political and media expertise. Demonstrated ability to lead teams to deliver results in highly complex stakeholder environments. Recognised skills in the formulation and implementation of strategy and balancing competing interests. Highly motivated, focused, resilient leader with proven integrity and independence.

I have recently stepped down as the first Chief Executive Officer of Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI), the State Agency with responsibility for the Conservation Protection and Development of Irelands inland fisheries and sea angling resource, which I helped to establish in 2010 following the enactment of the Inland Fisheries Act, 2010 and am exploring new opportunities.
