ABL celebrates the art of the deal
ABL Group is proud to sponsor the ‘Emerging Dealmaker’ category at the Northern Ireland Dealmaker Awards 2022 and to congratulate the winner Emma-Louise Gilroy of Keenan CF.
The Dealmaker Awards highlight the achievements of Northern Ireland’s dynamic business community by focusing on the work of professional advisory bodies and funders.
“Acquisition is a big part of our growth and will continue to be important in our future development,” explains ABL Group CEO Maurice Boyd. “In the past two years, ABL Group has completed the acquisition of the NI business of two global brokers, Aon & Willis Towers Watson. So we are no strangers to a deal!”
The shortlisted finalists for the awards were announced in January and the final took place on March 3rd, 2022 at Belfast’s Europa Hotel.
“The NI Dealmaker Awards celebrates the ‘art of the deal’ which is in essence about achieving mutual value and agreement between two parties,” adds Shauna Grahame, MD of ABL Insurance. “Our teams of insurance professionals in our offices in Belfast, Armagh and Coleraine work tirelessly to negotiate the best-fit insurance products at the best prices on behalf of our clients. So, making deals is at the heart of our business.
“We loved hearing more of the stories of the shortlisted finalists and congratulating the eventual winner, Emma-Louise on taking home the prize.”
The four finalists in the Emerging Dealmaker of the Year category (which spotlights corporate finance professionals under 35 years of age) were: Graeme McKinstry, Emma-Louise Gilroy, Darren Marley and Chris Trotter
We offer our sincere congratulations to the four nominees who personify the talent in this sector in Northern Ireland and offer our best wishes to the eventual winner.
