Celebrating Declan O’Brien’s career at ESB / Jen Lucy
After almost 39 years, Declan O’Brien is retiring on 13th June 2019.
Declan’s contribution to ESB over the years has been tremendous. He started out in Generation as the youngest shift engineer in the country at the time, working in Tarbert, and went on to take up further jobs in O&M at North Wall and Poolbeg, before becoming station manager for those two sites. Along the way, he’s also worked in key roles in Human Resources, Change Management, Technical and Safety Management (ESB International) and Strategy & Regulation, and now Strategy, Innovation and Transformation, making many friends along the way.
Declan would be delighted if you could join him on 13th June at the Waterloo Bar on Baggott Street, Dublin 2, from 5.30pm onwards to mark the occasion, for a night of music and memories shared.
Also, as a keen motorcyclist, Declan is planning to ride Route 66 in the USA next year, raising funds for Temple Street Hospital along the way. If you’d like to support Declan, you can donate online at: https://give.everydayhero.com/ie/declan-s-route-66-for-temple-street
This is in lieu of a collection and we wish Declan all the very best for both this and all his future adventures. Looking forward to seeing you on 13th June.
Celebrating Ollie Brogan’s ESB Career / Maureen Ferguson
Celebrating Ollie Brogan’s ESB Career
After over 40 years, Ollie is bringing his career in ESB to a close at the end of May. Ollie joined ESB in 1978 and started his career here as a civil design engineer. He was awarded a master’s degree for his work on flood estimation for design assessment of ESB’s hydro dams and also holds a master’s degree in Industrial Engineering.
Ollie then left engineering to progress a wide and varied career in almost every part of ESB. He worked as a Senior Logistics Manager in Materials Department, was the manager of Central Stores, and was the Sales and HR Manager for ESB Retail. He worked as ESB’s Marketing Manager and led the Demand Side Management Programme while in this role. He moved to a senior role in corporate change and was the HR Manager in Power Generation. Next stop was as Head of Corporate Affairs and then he moved to Head of Customer Supply (now Electric Ireland).
Ollie came back to ESB International in 2007 when he became General Manager of Engineering Solutions. Following a period as Acting HR Director, Ollie became the Managing Director of ESB International in 2011. This is a role that brought Ollie back to his roots in engineering while using his marketing and negotiation skills to win new international contracts. This was also a time of major investment in ESB Networks and Generation & Trading.
Ollie has made a huge contribution to ESB during his career and I hope that as many of you as possible will be able to attend Ollie’s presentation and to wish him well in his new chapter. Ollie’s presentation will be made by Pat O’Doherty, ESB Chief Executive, and will take place on 31st May at the Engineering and Major Projects office at 1 Dublin Airport Central at 4 p.m. This will be followed by a BBQ in the Radisson hotel. If you would like to attend the BBQ, please let Maureen Ferguson know to plan for numbers.
