Appointments to the Board of Northern Ireland Public Sector Enterprises Ltd (NI-CO)

Apr 02, 2007

Leslie Morrison, Chief Executive of Invest Northern Ireland, today announced a number of appointments to the Board of NI-CO.

Joining the Board will be three new members, Mr Peter Fitzsimmons (Chairperson), Mr Adrian Huston and Mr Sean Mahon.

Commenting on the appointments, Leslie Morrison said “NI-CO makes an important contribution, particularly within an expanding European Union, through selling overseas the skills and expertise of Northern Ireland Government Departments and other public sector bodies.

“The company’s Board plays a key role in guiding this activity and I believe that the new appointments announced today will complement and enhance the Board’s current range of skills and experience.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the work and commitment of Mr Edward Wilson, who is now stepping down as Chairperson, and the existing Board members, for the contribution they have made to NI-CO’s success in winning such projects in a highly competitive international arena."

The new members have been appointed for a three year term with effect from 1 April 2007.  The positions are part-time, with the Chairperson receiving £4,284 per annum and each Member £1,701 per annum.

The appointments have been made within the spirit of the Office of the Commissioner for Public Appointments for Northern Ireland Code of Practice.  All appointments are made on merit and political activity plays no part in the selection process.  However, in accordance with the original Nolan recommendations, there is a requirement for the political activity of appointees (if any declared) to be published.  None of the appointees have carried out any political activity in the last five years.
