People Leaving

After forty years’ service with ESB, Marina Hunt will be officially retiring on January 17th.
Over the last forty years, Marina has worked in various roles in Dublin South Region, Human Resources, the Transform Project, Customer Supply, BSC and ESB Networks. She is best known for her skill and successes in dealing with people, shaping the future of the business and being the voice of the Customer.
It is fitting that Marina is retiring from ESB as Manager Customer Centricity as she is best known across ESB for her relentless championing of the Customer’s cause and her drive to enhancing the Customer experience in her various customer facing roles.
Marina is a close friend and colleague to many of us and she will be missed. We would like to wish her every success and happiness in her future adventures.
Marina would like to welcome her current and former colleagues and friends to her retirement function in the Waterloo Bar, Baggot Street Upper, Dublin 4, at 5.30pm, on Thursday January 17th.

Retirement of Sean Mooney Home Services Electric Ireland / Niall Dineen
On Friday 25th January our good friend and colleague Sean Mooney will bid farewell to ESB to concentrate on his many other interests, including travel to exotic places such as India and a planned train journey through Europe but first off Sean is taking on the challenge of college again, to study History of all things!!
Throughout Sean’s 40 years of dedicated service to ESB, he has worked in many areas of the business – far too many to mention here but just to give a flavour of his career, Sean started out as an electrician in Dublin City before leaving his tools behind to take up a role in Load Development. This was really the beginning of Sean’s career as he subsequently sojourned in Human Resources for a while before taking up the position of Energy Services Manager in Fleet Street. He was then appointed to a senior role on the Market Opening Project based in Portlaoise and finally took on the challenging task of setting up a new business unit, to help deliver on ESBs target, to reduce carbon emissions in the Residential sector.
To celebrate his many achievements and to reminisce on times past, Sean would like to invite his many friends and colleagues throughout ESB, to join him, in the Harbour Master, Customs House Dock IFSC, Dublin 1, D01 W0X8, on Friday 25th January commencing at 5.30pm
