Who Is Joe?
I started out managing a small local staffing business which was later developed nationally and into the UK. Further diversification into retail and product distribution was later successfully achieved. This was also complemented by developing interests in commercial and residential property. I balance my natural entrepreneurial style with a keen interest in people. My strong people skills enabled a successful management team to be built in order to maintain and to continue the growth of the business units.
I grew up and live in Co. Wexford. I am married to Lily and we have four children ranging in age from late teens to mid 20’s. I enjoy competitive sport, particularly GAA where I have various roles from being a supportive Dad to coaching. I always enjoy supporting young people to make their own way in life. I enjoy international travel and love experiencing new places, their history, culture and everyday life and of course, meeting the people. Walking in nature is something I also enjoy and I have recently walked a 100km Camino walk in Spain.
I have a variety of qualifications tracking different needs and interests over the years. These include Agricultural science, business, accounting and finance, marketing, qualified financial advisor and most recently the Advanced Practitioner Diploma in Coaching with Neuroscience.
