CluneTech founder and CEO, Terry Clune, has been recognised as Business Person of the Year at the Business and Finance Awards in Dublin, Ireland, on Friday, December 8.

The Business Person of the Year Award, in association with KPMG, recognises an individual who has demonstrated an outstanding level of achievement across their career over the past year.


Clune is the founder and CEO of CluneTech, a suite of technology companies that includes TransferMate, the world’s leading B2B payments infrastructure-as-a-service provider. 

TransferMate, under the leadership of Clune and CEO Sinead Fitzmaurice, achieved unicorn status last year with a $1bn valuation after a $70m funding round, joining an elite group of just seven Irish tech unicorns to date. 


TransferMate, which was recognised as Fintech Company of the Year at the National Fintech Awards in September, was also shortlisted for Company of the Year at this evening’s Awards ceremony.

The recognition follows a very successful year for the Irish entrepreneur, which saw CluneTech company Immedis, a leading global payroll platform, acquired by UKG for €575m, in one of Ireland’s largest tech deals of 2023.

'Leading Players'

“I am humbled by this recognition, which I see as a tribute to our whole team and culture," said Terry Clune.  

"With incredible progress and innovation happening across fintech, I’m very proud that our companies have become leading players on the global stage.”
