Padraig Slattery, founder of Slattery PR and chairman of Teneo PSG, has been awarded the honour of life fellow membership of the Public Relations Institute of Ireland (PRII). Life fellowship is the highest accolade the institute can bestow on a member. Slattery has grown successful businesses in PR and corporate hospitality for over three decades.

Teneo PSG client list is known to include such major brands as Toyota, Topaz, Aer Lingus, Bord Gais Energy, Unilever, Samsung, and the IRFU to name but a few.
He was also one of the first to recognise the potential of sport sponsorship and went on to handle a number of major accounts, not least the IRFU, for many years. He founded Slattery Communications in 1983 which merged in 2014 with Pembroke PR to form PSG and later became Teneo PSG, following its sale to Declan Kelly’s Teneo in 2016.
Teneo PSG employs 80 people across specialist corporate, public affairs, consumer, sport and digital agencies. Aside from PR and his family, Slattery’s big passion in life is golf. A native of Lahinch, Co Clare, he followed in the footsteps of his father, Brud, in captaining the club in its 125th year. He was also the club captain in Mount Juliet and Portmarnock.
Congratulations to the man who is known to most in the wider PR world as ‘Padraig’.
