Announcing the appointment, Sean Mulryan, Chairman and Group CEO of Ballymore, said: “We have invested significantly in our Irish landbank over recent years, having acquired a number of large sites for residential and mixed-use projects.
“In this newly created role, Patrick will manage the execution of Ballymore’s growing Irish development portfolio whilst enhancing the existing Ballymore team and skillset in Dublin.”
Welcoming the announcement, Patrick Phelan, said: “Ballymore has a deserved reputation as a leading developer, delivering both high quality affordable homes and iconic urban developments.
“Linda and I look forward to building on the success of our Irish team, strengthening our existing partnerships with customers, investors and our funders.
