Teneo is proud to serve as the co-host of the Wall Street 50 Awards and we extend our sincere congratulations to Adrian Jones and all of this year’s honorees,” said Declan Kelly, CEO of Teneo. “Niall O’Dowd and Patricia Harty play a vital role in fostering Irish American culture and I thank them for all their hard work to ensure yet another highly successful event.”

“We are delighted that Teneo is our main sponsor this year,” said Niall O'Dowd, Co-Founder of Irish America magazine. “Declan Kelly, the CEO of Teneo, represents all that is best about business and integrity in America. Having them as our major sponsor is a tremendous boost for Irish America's Wall Street 50 and shows once again the potential when the best and brightest in Irish America decide to work together.”

Patricia Harty, Editor-in-Chief and Co-Founder of Irish America magazine, said "Adrian Jones exemplifies the best of the Irish on Wall Street, successful but never forgetting his roots or the need to give back.
