Medtronic CEO and Chairman

The Irish Times' Business Awards acknowledge excellence and outstanding achievement among Irish business leaders, both at home and abroad, and executives leading major multinational companies in Ireland. Each month, a winner is selected by The Irish Times business team, led by Business Editor Ciarán Hancock.

Bank of Ireland partners with The Irish Times to support the awards which celebrate the expertise, talent, and commitment of those who lead businesses in Ireland.

Expanding job roles in Ireland

Medtronic expanded its research and development (R&D) roles at a global center of excellence in Galway as part of a $30 million (€29.9 million) investment in its business, increasing the profile of its Irish operations.  

The job roles are in product development and global laboratory services, working on the development of products and services in the areas of coronary care, heart valve and peripheral vascular disease, heart arrhythmia and pacing, hypertension and spinal injury.

The jobs reinforce the Galway plant’s status within Medtronic, which is domiciled in Ireland. On a visit to Dublin, the Medtronic CEO noted that R&D undertaken in Galway was a critical part of Medtronic operations globally.
