Company: Irelandfood , John Daly Foods and Enterprise Ireland Mentor
John Daly created, developed and grew John Daly Refrigerated Foods Ltd. into one of the top 3 food distribution companies on the island of Ireland, with a turnover of €14m pa. He really enjoyed doing this and worked with some of the finest staff and management one could have. In August 2006 he sold John Daly Foods to Breco (Dairygold) and as he signed a non-compete clause and unable to work (in the food industry), he decided to do a full-time business degree in Galway Business Schools through the University of Wales. John has an MBA in Consultancy and Leadership as well as BA Honours degree, Higher National Diploma and a National Certificate in Agriculture. He has won several awards personally and for the business, including the most recent being a Special Merit Award from the President of Galway Chamber of Commerce and Galway Lord Mayor Award 2011 for volunteering in business. His motto is to always leave the ladder down for others to climb as he follows his vision. John gives freely of his time to voluntary organisations and is current Board Chairman of Galway Rape Crises Centre and Vice Chairman of Salthill Knocknacarra GAA club. He is former Chairman of Mayo Gaels GAA club and board member of Western Alzheimer’s.
