MARY O'Dea (above) is leaving the Financial Regulator to take up a new job with the International Monetary Fund in Washington.

O'Dea, currently director general of financial operations at the Regulator, will become the IMF's alternative executive director this July.

"I'm really looking forward to what I know will be a challenging role, especially at a time when Ireland is itself in an IMF/EU programme," O'Dea told the Sunday Independent. This paper asked the Regulator two months ago if O'Dea would be taking up a new job in the IMF.
