Update: New Vice President appointment
|In January of this year our Vice President Peter Glynne relocated to the UK to take up a role at Microsoft London. Peter has been a tremendous asset to the Chapter and we wish him every future success. However, Irelands loss is the UK's gain, as Peter is set to bring his considerable experience to our UK PMI Chapter committee!|
Once Peter stepped down, the role of Vice president needed to be filled. At our PMI Ireland Strategy away day in late January, a new Vice President was elected in accordance with our chapter bylaws.
I am very pleased to welcome Jackie Fagan (pictured) to the board of directors as our Vice President of the Ireland Chapter of PMI and I am excited to be working with Jackie as we execute our strategy.
|Please join us in thanking Peter for his many years of service and welcoming Jackie to this important role.|
