The Managing Director of Glanbia, Siobhán Talbot, has been announced as the recipient of the inaugural Irish Times Business Person of the Month Award, in association with KPMG.

Ms Talbot takes the award for May having successfully overseen a deal to spin off Glanbia’s Irish dairy and agri-business operation into a joint venture, called Glanbia Ireland.

Ciarán Hancock, Business Editor of The Irish Times said, “Securing the spin-off of its dairy and agri-business operation was a major achievement for Glanbia’s managing director Siobhán Talbot, and allows the company to focus on the many potential high-growth opportunities that exist for its nutrition business. This made her a worthy winner of the award for May.”
