“Mary brings significant experience and a record of success that will be critical as we continue to build the company across the world as the transition to renewable energy accelerates. Mary will be supported by our Chief Operations Officer Bart Doyle and the Global Leadership Team that is so admired within the industry.”
The Board wishes to acknowledge the contribution of outgoing CEO Andy Kinsella, who has served the company as CEO and previously as Head of Offshore.
Dr O’Connor said: “Andy has had a very successful career at Mainstream. The greatest test of any departing CEO is the quality of the management that follows their tenure. Andy brought a passion and commitment to the senior roles he fulfilled at Mainstream.
“He has left the company in great shape with a very accomplished senior management, led by Mary Quaney, poised to advance further the company’s ambitions. I and our Board are grateful to Andy and wish him every success in all his future endeavours.”
