Biography – Brian Hayes

Brian studied at Trinity College, Dublin and at St Patrick’s College Maynooth. Brian served as a member of both houses of the Irish Parliament from 1996 to 2014. 

In 2011 he was appointed as Minister of State at the Department of Finance. During his time as Minister of State, Brian attended Eurogroup, ECOFIN and Budgetary Council meetings on behalf of the Irish Government. He also led on the issues of procurement and public sector reform.

Following his election to the European Parliament in May 2014 Brian was appointed to the European Parliaments Economic & Monetary Affairs (ECON) Committee, and also elected as Vice President of ECON. He was the Vice Coordinator of Econ for the European People’s Party.Brian was the European Parliaments rapporteur for the IORPS II Directive and shadow rapporteur for the Money Market Funds regulation and the Pan European Pension Proposal (PEPP). He also worked on the EPs first ever report on Fintech and on the subject of Third Country Equivalence. 

Brian now leads the bpfi which is the voice of the Irish banking, payments and fintec industry in Ireland. As CEO he is acutely aware of the challenges facing the retail banking sector in the post banking union environment – challenges of capital capture, return on equity and investment in new tech. Bpfi advocates across the FS landscape and especially in the areas of digital transition, sustainable finance and anti fraud/AML related agendas.  BPFI also leads on industry non competitive collaboration. Ireland as a euro zone country has significant SSM banking operations so much of the Bpfi work is directly connected to positively influencing what’s happening in the EU across its membership of the EBF.
