Retirement of Philip Quigley, HV D&C Renewables, ESB Networks / Gearóid Quinn,
Reminder that Philip is finishing on Friday next, 28th April, and as he is not having a formal presentation, anyone wishing to contact him before then can see him in person in Leopardstown Road; email email@example.com or call 087 6370089 and “leave a message after the beep…!!” Otherwise, “regards” can be passed on through Noel Cowhey or John Walsh!
Philip’s time ashore is coming to a close and he’s ready to set a new course and catch the wind in his sails!
After 37 years Philip Quigley has decided the time has come to retire from work and focus on the “more important” aspects of life outside the ESB, especially relating to rugby, sailing, music and his family.
Philip graduated as a Civil Engineer from UCD in 1977 and after a couple of years working in consultancy, began his ESB career in 1980. His initial assignment was in Civil Works Department (now part of ESB International), as a civil/structural design engineer and subsequently as a project manager on the Moneypoint Generating Station project. In 1989 Philip moved to Distribution Department (now Asset Management) where he held various roles including 38kV Line Design Specialist, Manager Network Design Section and Distribution Department ISO9001 Quality Manager. Philip then joined the team responsible for the first Distribution Asset Management Plan and Regulatory Price Review submission to CER in 1999. Shortly afterwards he also managed the first Transmission Asset Owner Price Review submission while working with Regulatory Affairs in ESB’s Corporate Centre
In more recent times, Philip held positions in HV Projects, ESB Networks as Manager Work Planning, Manager Contract Operations and ESB International Design Liaison Manager. In 2010 Philip moved into the Renewables business with the introduction of Distribution contestability, and since then has held the position of Contestable Design Manager, HV Delivery and Contracting.
Philip’s last working day will be Friday 28th April, and he has opted to depart quietly and not to have a formal presentation.
I would like to thank Philip for his dedicated service over these 37 years, and in particular for his commitment and friendship over the last seven years with the Renewables Team. I wish him and his family every happiness and pleasure during his retirement, which is sure to be quite active!
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” (Mark Twain). With every best wishes for a long and happy retirement,
Renewables Manager, HVD&C
