The awards were established in 2014 to recognise the excellence and achievement of alumni who are making a difference in all areas of society and the economy from business and industry, healthcare and science to culture and the arts.
With more than 310,000 alumni in 184 countries, recipients of the annual UCD Alumni Awards are selected amid stiff competition for their global impact, their pioneering ambition and the ways in which their ground-breaking and trailblazing work reflects one or more of UCD’s strategic themes: Creating a Sustainable Global Society; Transforming through Digital Technology; Building a Healthy World; and Empowering Humanity.
Commenting on the award Kerry McLaverty said “I am absolutely delighted to receive the UCD Alumni Business Award. The awards have honoured some incredible alumni since 2014 and it is a huge honour to be amongst those who have received awards in previous years and the other eight recipients of this year’s awards”.
The UCD Alumni Awards are a way for UCD to showcase the accomplishments and successes of our alumni, which are a source of great pride to the University and an inspiration to present and future generations.
