The IGB has announced today that their Chief Financial Officer, Michael Murnane, is leaving the organisation.
Michael joined IGB in 2012 and was involved in a wide range of measures taken by IGB to resolve historic debt issues, through measures such as disposal of the Harold’s Cross Greyhound Stadium in Dublin and the original IGB Headquarters Building in Henry Street, Limerick.
Michael was also centrally involved in effecting significant cost savings, including the restructuring of a staff defined benefits Pensions Scheme. Michael also represented IGB on several occasions both before the Public Accounts and Agriculture Committees of the Oireachtas.
Mr Gerard Dollard , Chief Executive Officer, is pleased to acknowledge the contribution that Michael made to the management of IGB over the last 8 years, particularly during recessionary times.
Michael’s contribution to the Executive Leadership team and his input at Board level will be missed and he wished him every success in his future endeavours.
Michael Murnane thanks Mr Dollard, board members and all the colleagues within IGB with whom he has enjoyed working with since 2012 and expressed his confidence that the Greyhound Industry has a very important place within Irish sporting circles, particularly as a rural enterprise that contributes to much needed employment opportunities for over 10,000 people.
