Dublin Chamber has appointed Graeme McQueen as its new Head of Communications.
 
McQueen takes up the position after spending the past 2 and a half years as the Chamber's Head of Public Affairs.
 
The Chamber has confirmed Fergus Sharpe as its new Head of Public Affairs. Sharpe has worked as part of the Chamber's Public Affairs team since late 2016 and will lead the Chamber’s work on key policy issues.
 
In his new role, McQueen will oversee all of the Chamber's communications, media and marketing activity, reporting to Dublin Chamber CEO Mary Rose Burke. McQueen will continue to act as a key spokesperson for the organisation.
 
McQueen joined Dublin Chamber in early 2014. A graduate of Napier University Edinburgh, McQueen previously spent almost a decade working as a business journalist, including a 7 year stint as Assistant Editor of Business Plus magazine. He also previously worked for the Scottish government.
 
Fergus joined the Chamber’s public affairs team in 2016. He holds a Master’s degree from Trinity College Dublin. Prior to joining Dublin Chamber, he worked for several years in a Dublin embassy and in the Houses of the Oireachtas.
 
Dublin Chamber CEO Mary Rose Burke said: “These changes come at a very exciting and important time for the Chamber. Graeme takes up the new Head of Communications role as we seek to build on Dublin Chamber's reputation as the Dublin region's most effective networking and lobbying organisation. His appointment is key to our aim of ensuring that our key messages are communicated effectively. Fergus will be instrumental going forward in developing the Chamber's positions on the key issues facing businesses in Dublin."
