Sinead Galvin, Galvin Sports Management

Sinead Galvin established Galvin Sports Management in 2016 and has become a real force in terms of representing athletes across the sporting spectrum.

She has recieved multiple nominations to feature on this list including some heartfelt commendations from the athletes she works closely with.

European Championship medallist Thomas Barr wrote that “in essence, she’s an extremely caring and trustworthy person, as well as a fair and stern business woman, and has been extremely Influential on my athletics career by taking control of the corporate side of things, which has slowed me to continue training to the best of my ability.”

Apart from Barr, Galvin looks after the interests of Ellen Keane, Ciara Mageean, David Harte and a host of other athletes, bringing them to the attention of the public through her media expoeriece and sponsors through her commercial links.

Galvin was previously Account Director at Wilson Hartnell responsible for AIB and Electric Ireland and prior to that, she worked for several years as the first Marketing and Communications Manager at Athletics Ireland. She is a graduate of Dublin Institute of Technology.

50 Women of Influence in Irish Sport 2018 is brought to you by Sport for Business in partnership with our friends at Liberty Insurance.

Over the coming weeks, we will identify more leaders on and off the field of play. They will include those who are role models in terms of their abilities and what they have achieved. They will come from teams and individual sports, from sponsorship partners, from the media, from the administrative corridors of power and from places where influence may be subtle but no less powerful.

We want your voice in who the remainder should be. Who do you come across in your working life within sport, or in your position as an observer, that you feel deserves recognition.

Contact us today Quoting Women in Sport 2018 Nomination to let us know who you think should be joining us.

This year we will be inviting each of our nominated 50 to join us at our Annual Women in Sport Conference, hosted this year in the studios of RTÉ on Wednesday morning, December 5th.

We will be unveiling the line up of speakers we have joining us over the coming weeks and will make places available to book, initially for Sport for Business members, from Monday, October 17th.

We will also be publishing this year’s Women of Influence list, together with other interviews and content relating to the cause of promoting Women in Sport in a commemorative booklet.
