24 June 2022 – Galway, Ireland – Creva International proudly announces that its CEO and Founder, Noel Kelly, has received the ‘George Hayward Award’ from the International United Commercial Agents And Brokers (IUCAB) association.  

Internationally recognized as 2022’s top commercial agent, Noel’s agri-business will continue to flourish based on values of trust and integrity and its commitment to providing pedigree solutions to farms using the most direct and efficient route possible.  

Noel grew up and worked on his family’s award winning and highly respected dairy farm, Creva – known for breeding and showing the top pedigree cows in Ireland. Once struck with Mad Cow disease, the herd was depopulated and Noel pivoted to a new business focused on connecting pedigree factories with exceptional dealers to provide the highest quality cow and calf comfort products to farmers globally.  

Creva will celebrate its 10th anniversary this year with 10 full time employees and expansion plans to launch a new Business to Business technology platform which will ease the path for more Irish products to be marketed globally.”Growing the Irish market is a key priority for our company.” said Noel.   

“Because of the substantial global network we’ve built that comes to us for advice, product training, and collaborating together for large farm solutions, we have brought more Irish solutions to the global market.” says Noel.  “We’ve collaborated to develop supply solutions for 5 large Irish companies in the past 2 years and we routinely work with up to 40 different countries.”
