BC Chief Executive Club To Host Global Forum In Ireland

Next fall, the Boston College Chief Executive Club will hold a Global Forum in Dublin, Ireland, on Sept. 2, 2016. The forum will be held the day before the Aer Lingus College Football Classic, the Dublin matchup  between BC and Georgia Tech.

The forum will include current members and alumni of the CEO club and prominent business leaders from the United States, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, WCAS ’09, is also expected to attend. They will hold a panel to discuss today’s important issues, such as the use of technology in developing a global economy.

The club, founded 23 years ago, has established itself as one of the leading business clubs in the country. The event in Dublin will allow the CEO club to make itself known on a global stage.

“Boston College began as a small commuter school for Irish immigrants and today is recognized as a leading global university,” Warren Zola, the club’s executive director, said. “ I am thrilled to take advantage of this incredible opportunity on behalf of our members, and to continue to promote the prestige of the Carroll School of Management.”

Neil Naughton, chairman of the Irish Steering Committee and deputy chairman of the Glen Dimplex Group, said that the Aer Lingus Football Classic could serve as a means to develop connections and relationships between the Irish and New England business communities.

“The Boston College Chief Executives Club luncheon will be eagerly anticipated by the business community in Ireland,” he said.
