Musgrave has announced the appointment of David O’Flynn to Chief Financial Officer, a position which will see him join the company Board of Directors as an Executive Director and Company Secretary. He succeeds Tim Kenny, who was CFO and Company Secretary for the previous 12 years.
A chartered accountant and MBA, O’Flynn has over 20 years domestic and international finance experience across food retail & wholesale, as well as the industrial and telecommunications sectors. Prior to joining Musgrave in 2005, he held senior finance roles with leading international companies KPMG, Motorola and Avery Dennison. At Musgrave, O’Flynn has successfully held divisional and Group roles, including interim Group Finance Director and, more recently, Head of Business Development.
Commenting on the announcement, Chris Martin, Musgrave CEO said, “David has made an invaluable contribution to Musgrave since joining the business in 2005. He has already played a key role as part of our Growing Good Business strategy in his previous role as Head of Business Development, with recent accomplishments including leading the acquisition of C.J. O’Loughlin, Allied Foods, and the launch of our partnership with Alibaba which has opened up new export opportunities for Musgrave. His strong track record of leading finance teams and identifying new business opportunities will help us deliver long-term sustainable growth, capitalising on the anticipated expansion of the grocery and foodservice markets across the island of Ireland and Spain.”
“I would also like to thank Tim for his long service with Musgrave and for playing a key role in some of Musgrave’s most significant business milestones during this period, such as the acquisition and integration of the former Superquinn business. Everyone at Musgrave wishes him every success with his new position as CFO with Cairn Homes.”
