Gráinne Morrison

Futurist, The Future Factory, Dublin Airport

Gráinne Morrison was recently appointed as a futurist at The Future Factory, the new innovation and business development hub at Dublin Airport.

She started her career under the mantel of the Quinn family in Superquinn many moons ago. She learned the retail ropes from the shop floor up and then moved into the import and distribution side of the business. She holds qualifications in management, marketing, digital advertising and interior design.

Gráinne moved to Australia in her 20s and held roles with Fairfax Media before returning to Ireland and joining News International. Her energy and quick thinking were a valuable commodity in the dynamic world of print media. Most of her career has been spent in marketing and communications roles.

With a hunger for numbers, Gráinne joined Dublin Airport’s commercial team in 2012. She has worked in car parks and Dublin Airport Travel Services, where she led the transformation of the company’s crown jewel of services, Platinum Services, the 24-hour private VIP terminal.

When not at the airport, you’ll most likely find Gráinne in Drogheda, where she lives with her husband Mark and their children, Tommy and Lucy. She has a passion for cooking and loves a good problem to solve.
