Welcome to our new CEO!

We are delighted to welcome Annemarie Harte to IGG as our new Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Annemarie has extensive experience in senior positions with representative groups such as CEO of Hardware Association Ireland (2014-2019), Secretary/CEO of Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland (2007-2013) and Manager/Chief Executive of Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown Chamber of Commerce (2005-2007).

She has been a consultant to the Royal Life Saving Society UK, advising on organisational and cultural change management and developing its revenue growth business plan. Annemarie has also held senior positions in sales, marketing and business development across the Telegraph Group Limited and Associated Newspapers in the UK and Ireland.

Annemarie holds a Public Relations Diploma from the Public Relations Institute of Ireland and an NVQ Management qualification from the Institute of Leadership and Management in the UK. She is currently studying for a Bachelor in Business Studies at UCD where she has completed two years of the four year part-time degree programme.

A big rugby fan, Annemarie is regularly found at Leinster and Ireland matches. She enjoys DIY and home improvement in the spare time that’s left as well as travelling far and wide.

Annemarie, who has fond memories of her time as a Brownie in Dublin, looks forward to working again with volunteers to support them in their roles as Leaders, developing the National Office team and believes that ‘giving girls confidence’ is more important than ever in a world where diversity and leadership is in short supply.
