Gearóid O’Driscoll has been elected the new President of CPA Ireland at the Annual General Meeting of members in Dublin yesterday evening.
Gearóid is a native of Bandon in Co. Cork and has been an accountant in practice for over 40 years. He is currently the Senior Director at ODM Accountants who specialise in strategic business and accountancy services for individuals and businesses across Ireland.
Addressing the members at the AGM he called on the Government to fully commit to supporting regional growth if SMEs in Ireland are to continue to thrive noting that “the recently announced Rural Regeneration and Development Fund is welcome, but too restrictive to maximise its value.”
Gearóid became a member of CPA Ireland in 1980. He is also a member of the Irish Taxation Institute and holds a Degree in Commerce. Gearóid has been an active member of the Institute’s SMP Committee for many years. Gearóid was co-opted to Council on September 2010.
Also at the AGM, Áine Collins, was elected to the position of Vice President. Áine qualified as a CPA accountant in 1996 and is company principal of Blueprint Consultancy since July 2016.
