Business & Finance highlights notable new appointments this week at EPIC, The Irish Emigration Museum, Kinetic Ireland and HTEC Ltd.
Dr Patrick Greene OBE, FSA, Museum Director and CEO
EPIC, The Irish Emigration Museum.
I’m delighted that Patrick will be taking on this new role. Under his leadership, the work EPIC does for its visitors, for the Irish diaspora and with the Irish State Departments will undoubtedly grow in significance. His broad knowledge of the museum world, his commitment to community involvement and his leadership abilities – not to mention his warmth and energy – make him the perfectly well-rounded director to lead EPIC into its next exciting chapter serving the museum’s visitors and the Irish community both at home and abroad. I would like to applaud Mervyn Greene and his team for the very strong foundations they have put in place since we opened in 2016, which led to EPIC being awarded Europe’s Leading Visitor Attraction 2019 at the recent World Travel Awards. Mervyn will continue to work as Managing Director of CHQ (where EPIC is based) and focus on our significant development plans for the building.”
I am honoured to lead EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum at a defining moment in the life of this exceptional and young institution. I look forward to building on the solid foundation established by my predecessor, working with the museum’s talented team, the Dublin community and the diaspora at large to continue to champion the story of emigration, and chart the path to deeper, more meaningful audience engagement. We will work together to realise fully EPIC’s mission and to continue the exceptional growth in visitor numbers.”
