Ireland's Musgrave Group Appoints New Chief Financial Officer
Ireland's Musgrave Group has announced the appointment of David O’Flynn as its new chief financial officer, replacing Tim Kenny, who held the role for 12 years.
The group, which operates the SuperValu and Centra banners, announced that O'Flynn will join the company's Board of Directors as an executive director and company secretary.
O'Flynn has been with Musgrave since 2005, holding several group roles, including interim group finance director and, more recently, head of business development.
He previously also worked at KPMG, Motorola and Avery Dennison, holding a variety of finance-based roles.
“David has made an invaluable contribution to Musgrave since joining the business in 2005," commented Musgrave chief executive Chris Martin. "He has already played a key role as part of our Growing Good Business strategy in his previous role as Head of Business Development, with recent accomplishments including leading the acquisition of C.J. O’Loughlin, Allied Foods, and the launch of our partnership with Alibaba which has opened up new export opportunities for Musgrave.
"His strong track record of leading finance teams and identifying new business opportunities will help us deliver long-term sustainable growth, capitalising on the anticipated expansion of the grocery and foodservice markets across the island of Ireland and Spain.”
