Terry Clune


Terry founded Taxback Group while studying business at Trinity College. His company now employs over 1,000 staff in 20 countries. He is a former winner of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award, and the HSBC European Entrepreneur Award. Taxback’s software integrates into leading ERP systems to identify and recover reclaimable taxes paid by companies while on business overseas. 

Terry is also founder of several early stage companies such as Transfermate, which is building a global network of payment institution licences, and Sales-Promotions, whose technology manages international loyalty rebate programs.

In 2012, Terry launched ConnectIreland, a government & IDA backed program which gives everybody the chance to help attract companies & jobs to Ireland. Simply, if you hear about a company that’s expanding to Europe, tell ConnectIreland. Their team will help that company learn the benefits of locating in Ireland, and you could earn a major financial reward. 25 new companies have already established in Ireland through the program. ConnectIreland was recognised at the recent Financial Times Global FDI awards, winning 4 of the 15 categories.

Terry lives in Kilkenny with his wife Kate and their 4 children.
