SHANNON Airport director Martin Moroney has announced his retirement.
Mr Moroney started his career with Aer Rianta International and rose through the ranks to the position of business development manager before transferring in 1996 to the then Aer Rianta as Shannon Airport general manager, traffic marketing.
He was appointed director of Shannon Airport in 2002 and during his tenure, he steered Shannon through some difficult times such as the Heathrow debacle of 2007, the introduction of open skies and the recent cutbacks by Ryanair.
Mary Considine will succeed him, moving from the role of head of finance and corporate affairs.
A native of Lissycasey, Ms Considine joined the company in 1990. She has worked in various financial and marketing roles and she qualified as a Certified Public Accountant in 1992.
“As director of Shannon Airport, Martin Moroney has been a key member of the DAA executive team over the past eight years,” said Dublin Airport Authority CEO Declan Collier. “On behalf of DAA Chairman David Dilger and the board, I wish to thank him for the enormous contribution that he has made to this company over the past three decades and to wish him the very best in his retirement.”
He also congratulated Ms Considine on her appointment. “Mary brings excellent experience and capability to this role. She is a wonderful addition to the overall DAA management team and I wish her every success in the future.”
Shannon Airport Authority chairman Brian O’Connell also paid tribute to Mr Moroney and congratulated Ms Considine. “Martin has been a great asset to Shannon Airport and while I am sad to see him go, I’m delighted to welcome Mary into her new role,” Mr O’Connell said.
