Mr O'Kelly, SBCI chairman, said the appointments will bring a wide-range of specialist SME and lending knowledge to the organisation.

"Their expertise will be hugely valuable to the SBCI in its work to help SMEs with their financing and make it easier for them to support jobs and grow their business," Mr O'Kelly said.

Vacancies on the SBCI Board were advertised on stateboards.ie. The closing date for applications was February 6.

"I am delighted with the high calibre of candidates being appointed to the board," Mr Noonan said.
