Hugh O’Reilly
Director of Business Development
The Wheel

Hugh has been Director of Development with The Wheel since June 2016 having worked here previously from June 2010 – June 2015. His main role in The Wheel is to drive and implement the organisation’s strategic funding plan. This means he spends most of my time assessing new opportunities for the organisation and developing proposals for projects that we hope will help deliver greater support to the sector. You can check out some of the projects they currently work on here.

His primary degree was a BA in Furniture Design, believe it or not, and he also holds a Certificate in Fundraising and an MA in Public & Political Communication yet he has spent most of his working career in business development roles; the majority of that time being spent in development roles in nonprofits.
