New exec role for O’Connor

Gabriella Griffith
The former chairman of Irish Allied Bank, Dan O’Connor, is to join the board of International Personal Finance as a non-executive director at the start of next year.

He’ll be taking over 25 years experience with him, having helped to steer Allied Irish Bank through the financial crash.

The news comes as Christopher Rodrigues announces he will step down as the firm’s chairman as of its AGM at the end of April. O’Connor is also non-exec of CRH and Glanbia.
