Leadership Team

Colm McGinley

CEO & Founder

Colm set out to build the McGinley Group with two core goals in mind; to exceed client expectations and to ensure the McGinley Group would be a great place to work. With our YOY growth and our recent placing on the Sunday Times“Best Companies to Work For” list, he has come a long way toward achieving those goals.

As well as the McGinley Group, Colm is a board member across several other associated companies as well as the Young Presidents Organisation, which currently boasts over 22,000 members worldwide.

Away from the office, Colm can be found either on the golf course or with his wife and three kids (all currently under five years old)!
