Insolvency guru Wallace can take the high road
Published 22/04/2011 | 05:00
AS IF being one of the most disliked men in Cavan wasn't enough to contend with, KPMG insolvency guru Kieran Wallace followed up his role as 'share receiver' for the Quinn Group and property assets by landing a role as Nama's receiver for Jim Mansfield's hotels, airport and property empire.
There are some consolations though. The M3 motorway to Cavan that has already brought so much delight to executives from Anglo and Quinn Insurance administrators Grant Thornton will surely bring the same joy to Wallace on his trips back and forth. The two parallel synergies also throw up some interesting potential synergies -- Weston Airport with the Quinn Group helicopter thrown in, anybody?
Headon joins Kenmare
IDEALISTIC public relations guru Elizabeth Headon is joining the board of mining company Kenmare in June as a non-executive director.
Ms Headon went to Haiti as an aid worker last year before the earthquake there and has since become chief executive of the Digicel Foundation Haiti in Port au Prince.
The Smurfit Business School alumni previously worked for Dublin PR company Murray Consultants and for Kenmare where she worked on the company's titanium mine in Moma in Mozambique to develop a community development association.
"She brings to the board a wealth of experience in community relations, which allied with her previous work in public relations, will be extremely useful as the Moma titanium minerals mine continues to grow," Kenmare chairman Chales Carvill said this week.
