Edwards Lifesciences hire
US medtech firm Edwards Lifesciences has appointed Kay Shanahan as head of finance.
In her new role, Ms Shanahan will oversee the execution of financial strategy as the company establishes its base in Ireland.
Earlier this year Edwards Lifesciences chose the National Technology Park at Castletroy in Limerick as the location of its new facility in Ireland. It is estimated it will result in an €80m investment and 600 jobs in the mid-west of Ireland over the next several years.
The Edwards Lifesciences team has more than 30 years' experience working in Ireland, the US, and the EMEA region, across the global pharmaceutical manufacturing, technology, and finance industries.
