Prior to joining the lecturing staff in NUIG's Accountancy & Finance discipline in 2017, I worked as a chartered accountant in the information technology sector.  I joined Digital Equipment Corporation after qualifying as a chartered accountant and over the course of a twenty eight year career with Digital/Compaq/Hewlett-Packard broadened and deepened my technical accounting and problem solving expertise as well as developing the 'soft' skills necessary to succeed in a constantly and rapidly changing business environment. I have over 16 years experience in the role of Financial Controller encompassing - at a subsidiary level , at a country level, and at sub-regional level,. I have also served as a company director for a variety of Hewlett-Packard's Irish entities.  A special area of interest and expertise during my time with Hewlett-Packard was that of pension provision - I served as chairperson of the company's Irish defined benefit scheme's investment committee.
