Former CEO of Aurivo Co-op Aaron Forde has been appointed the new Chairman of the Shannon Group.
A native of Co Cavan, Mr Forde has a track record at senior level with international leadership experience gained across Ireland and the UK.
He was Chief Executive of Aurivo for 16 years until he left the company at the end of 2019.
Aaron Forde has previous board experience with Ornua, the Sligo Economic Forum, IBEC and Midwest Radio, and is also a non-executive director with a number of private companies.
Transport Minister Eamon Ryan says he's pleased Mr Forde has accepted this appointment to the Shannon Group plc at a very challenging time, particularly for aviation, and says he's confident he will bring the right mix of skills and drive to his new role.
