The CEO of Limerick Twenty Thirty, David Conway, has today paid tribute to outgoing Chairman Denis Brosnan on his retirement after four years in the role. Mr Brosnan, who was the founding chairman of Limerick Twenty Thirty when it was established in May 2016, will be replaced in the role by board member Conn Murray, who was unanimously appointed as Mr Brosnan’s replacement.
“We’ve been so fortunate to have Denis Brosnan as founding Chairman of Limerick Twenty Thirty and he’s been hugely influential in ensuring we got the wider project off to a really positive start. He brought fantastic track-record to the programme, insight and decisiveness. We all learned so much from him and he’s set a standard and momentum that we are determined to follow. After an incredible career in business, he said when he started with us that getting Limerick Twenty Thirty up and running was a key objective of his and he’s delivered. As an executive and as board members, we are extremely grateful to him,” said Limerick Twenty Thirty CEO David Conway.
Looking ahead to working with Mr Brosnan’s successor, Mr Conway said: “Conn Murray has been one of the key strategists of Limerick’s resurgence over the past decade and will bring invaluable expertise and experience to the table. As Chief Executive of Limerick City and County Council, he had to foresight with Denis to establish Limerick Twenty Thirty in the first instance. The mandate was to develop disused, iconic sites in the city into catalysts for economic growth and we are well under way with that. We look forward to working with Conn and continuing the great momentum already built here over recent years.”
