Conor Faughnan, CEO and Arthur Collier, Chairman 2023
The RIAC operates from its historic premises on Dawson Street in Dublin with Member facilities, clubhouse, car park and archive. The Club is a founding member of the FIA, the Federation International de l’Automobile (FIA) the world governing body for Motorsport.
“I’m delighted and very honoured to lead such a prestigious institution as the RIAC.” Says Faughnan. “The Dawson Street facility has been a feature in Dublin for well over a century, since the early days of automobile use in Ireland.”
RIAC Chairman, Arthur Collier said “We are very pleased that Conor is joining us. He brings enormous experience and expertise to the role and is the ideal appointment to lead us into our next chapter.”
The Irish Automobile Club is one of the oldest of its kind in the world. It was established in 1901 and is steeped in history (the ‘Royal’ prefix was added in recognition of its humanitarian work for Irish soldiers during the First World War). It organises Member events, classic & collectible car events, and services to motorsport competitors and organisers.
Mr Faughnan will continue to provide media commentary and to retain certain other interests. He will take up his role with RIAC with immediate effect.
