Eimear Robertson Named Irish Professional Woman of the Year

Friday 11 August, 2017

The Professional Irish Women of Chicago (PIWOC) recently held their inaugural awards luncheon in celebration of Irish heritage and female leadership. Created by the Chicago Rose of Tralee Center, this event recognizes entrepreneurial women across nine different categories including Volunteer of the Year, Professional in Marketing & Events, and New Business of the Year.

“There are such strong women involved in the Chicago Rose of Tralee and the International Festival we decided this would be a great place for women to network, mentor and learn from each other,” said Executive Director of PIWOC, Mary Kay Gavin-Marmo.

Kerry was a proud sponsor of the event and our own Eimear Robertson, VP and GM of Culinary, received the highest honor - the Irish Professional Woman of the Year Award.

Eimear joined Kerry and relocated to the US in 2004 after receiving her degree in Food Science from the University College Dublin. She held several positions in sales and business management prior to her current role, where she is able to fulfill her passion of bringing new products to market.

We couldn't be more proud of Eimear, and the impact she has on our business and the community.
