Overall Winner Business of the Year 2022 

Global Shares has been crowned Overall Business of the Year at the 2022 West Cork Business & Tourism Awards.  The announcement was made by James Fogarty, Deputy Chief Executive of Cork County Council, on February 3rd. Global Shares also took home the award for Best Medium/Large Business.

We couldn’t be more proud to win the Overall West Cork Business of the Year 2022. Our story is firmly rooted in our hometown of Clonakilty and we never tire of beating the drum for this region as a great place to develop global business and enjoy an excellent work-life balance.
Now as Global Shares becomes part of J.P. Morgan, it paves the way for a really exciting next chapter – we’ll accelerate our expansion globally; headcount will grow worldwide; and crucially our headquarters will remain in Clonakilty.
The future here is bright and we look forward to welcoming lots of new West Cork recruits through our doors in the years to come!

– Tim Houstoun, CEO, Global Shares


The awards, run by The Southern Star media in partnership with Cork County Council, consisted of eight categories.
