Harry Fehily, our Managing Partner, is looking forward to continuing to assist the University of Limerick Foundation, as the newly elected Chairman. Harry has been a board member of the Foundation for a number of years and is successor to Chair Dr Loretta Brennan Glucksman, who is stepping down from the role after six years.
“I am delighted and honoured to take on this role. I am immensely proud of my association with the Foundation for the past eight years and I am privileged by the trust that has been placed in me by Dr Loretta Brennan Glucksman and the Board members in appointing me.
I look forward to working alongside CEO Harvey Duthie in continuing the excellent work being done by the Foundation, as evident in the fact that it has already invested more than €200 million in projects across the campus.
Today, we have an opportunity to build on that tremendous legacy for the benefit of the University, its students, Limerick city and the Mid-West and to ensure the continuance of the University’s status as an internationally recognised centre of educational excellence.”
Dr Brennan Glucksman congratulated Mr Fehily on his new role and thanked him for his tireless commitment to the Foundation, University and wider region. The Irish-American philanthropist confirmed that she will remain as a director of the Foundation and said she:
“Looks forward to assisting Harry’s continued leadership in delivering the University of Limerick Foundation’s objectives. The University of Limerick Foundation ensures philanthropic funding continues to underpin UL’s prestigious role in higher education in Ireland.”
Harvey Duthie, UL Foundation’s CEO, welcomed Mr Fehily’s appointment, saying:
“We are already working on a number of exciting projects which we hope to bring to fruition over the coming months.”
