Liam Sheedy has over 25 years of experience of leading teams to outstanding results in both the corporate and sporting environments. He spent 18 years, until November 2020, of his career working with Bank of Ireland where he held numerous leadership roles that saw him deliver exponential growth across his teams.
In his role as provincial director for Munster, with responsibility for 600 employees and 500,000 retail and business banking customers, he designed and implemented the bank’s ‘Winning In Munster’ strategy, crystalizing a team culture that delivered unprecedented year on year growth in the province as well as significantly raising employee engagement and customer satisfaction scores.
Liam has also been one of Irish sport’s most successful leaders. Having played at the highest level, he is best known for his remarkable managerial success, leading his native Tipperary to an epic All-Ireland Final victory in 2010 before stepping away afterwards to concentrate on his banking career. He returned nine years later as manager of Tipperary and, remarkably, recaptured the title in his first year back at the helm. Liam has won numerous awards, including Philips Manger of the Year and Volunteer in Sport.
A member of the board of Sport Ireland – the statutory authority tasked with the development of sport in Ireland – since 2013, Liam chaired its High-Performance Committee and oversaw the development of a new strategy for Irish elite athletes and structures for the next 12 years. Liam is also a member of the University of Limerick Sport (UL Sport) Board of Directors and served on GAA management committee for three years.
