Next generation of agri-food industry leaders on the market – Bord Bia
Bord Bia has launched a new CV Booklet for the Bord Bia Marketing Fellowship Class of 2014 to profile the 20 fellows currently completing the programme.
The booklet will be circulated to HR managers and food industry leaders this week. This is the 5th year of the Marketing Fellowship programme which has recruited more than 120 fellows, who have completed in excess of 400 business development and market research projects for Irish food and drink companies in key international markets, including the UK, Continental Europe, the US, China and the Middle East.
Speaking at the launch, Aidan Cotter, CEO, stated, “With the current programme nearing completion, this cohort of graduates will be keen to follow in the footsteps of previous fellows in securing employment within the Irish food industry both at home and abroad. All of the previous Fellowship graduates secured employment, 88% within the food industry.” Pictured at the launch was Aidan Cotter, CEO, Bord Bia, Ronan Gormley, Bord Bia Fellow based in Dusseldorf, Germany, Simon Coveney, Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, and Emer Dunne, Bord Bia Fellow based in Stockholm, Sweden.
The Bord Bia Marketing Fellowship programme, in partnership with UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School, is designed to attract, develop and retain the talent of a new generation of marketing professionals within the agri-food industry and to broaden the export reach of Irish food companies.
