The North America head of drinks giant Moët Hennessy has been given a major award by networking organisation, Northern Ireland Connections.

Jim Clerkin, originally from Rostrevor in Co Down, was recognised for his commitment to promoting Northern Ireland business and cultural links around the world.

Mr Clerkin, Moët Hennessy's president and chief executive for North America, started his career in the drinks industry with Guinness.

He was one of the first supporters of NI Connections, a non-profit body which promotes business by connecting people at home with an overseas network of people with links to Northern Ireland.

Mr Clerkin spoke at the Belfast International Homecoming 2016 last week, celebrating the achievement of Northern Ireland people overseas.
