Our member Community Finance Ireland, the fastest-growing social finance provider in Ireland and the UK, has announced the appointment of Dónal Traynor as the organisation’s new chief executive officer. 

2020 marked a new chapter for Community Finance Ireland as they launched their new all-island brand, demonstrated their reach right across the island of Ireland and commenced a celebration of the Change-makers across Ireland and Northern Ireland.

2021 will see Donal lead the business into the new normal. The recent pivoting of the NI business to aid the deployment of The Covid Social Enterprise Grant Fund (£9 million to NI based social enterprises) and a recruitment drive for three new roles, are clear indications that this social enterprise is in very good shape to support their ambition to ensure that social impact is felt, not simply dreamt.
