Death Notice of Richard Hickey

After a successful career in the pharmaceutical industry with Ciba-Geigy, Dick immersed himself in voluntary and community work. It was during his time as President of Waterford Chamber in 1991-92 that the opportunity arose to establish a Business Innovation Centre (BIC) here in the South East. Dick grabbed the opportunity with both hands and along with a group of enthusiastic partners in WIT, Waterford Chamber, and Waterford City Council, among others, lobbied to have the next Irish BIC located in the South East.

Dick was Chairperson of South East BIC from its foundation in 1995 to 2021. His guidance, support and leadership were instrumental in the success of the BIC and the development of an entrepreneurial and innovative ecosystem in the South East region.

The Board and team at South East BIC wish to extend their sympathy and gratitude to Dick’s family: his wife Anna, daughter Emma, son Richard and the extended Hickey family.

May he rest in peace.
