Food-to-go group Greencore has appointed Emma Hynes as director and chief financial officer with effect from 19 May.
Ms Hynes has held a number of senior finance roles during her career, including more latterly as CFO of Press Up Entertainment Group.
Prior to joining Press Up Entertainment last year, she spent over 11 years with Greencore in a variety of finance leadership roles.
Her most recent role at Greencore was group finance director, where she was responsible for financial reporting, financial planning and analysis, financing and capital management, treasury, tax, strategic finance projects, and corporate activity.
The appointment follows the announcement last month of Eoin Tonge's departure from Greencore.
Patrick Coveney, CEO of Greencore, said: "We are delighted that Emma is returning to Greencore having gained invaluable experience with an external company.
Emma was an outstanding finance leader during her tenure with us and has an in-depth knowledge of both the group and the food and beverage sector. I greatly look forward to working with her."
Ms Hynes holds an MBA from Dublin City University and is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, Ireland.
