Farewell & Thanks
Arthur Hutchinson is retiring / Adrian Kelly
After 40 years of dedicated service Arthur Hutchinson will be retiring from ESB on the 7th May 2021. Arthurs last day in his “home office” will be Friday 26th March 2021.
Arthur joined ESB in September 1980 as a Graduate engineer in Civil Works Department and worked on several engineering projects including site engineer for the Moneypoint 400Kv lines. In 1986 Arthur joined a small team to support the establishment of ESBI Computing. He enjoyed many years developing and supporting a range of commercial software products, particularly in the area of Computer Aided Design and GIS. In 2001 he was appointed to the role of IT & BP manager for Customer Supply and was responsible for the delivery of the Market Opening IT Programme for Customer Supply. Following a number of years as Billing & Payments manager in Customer Supply Arthur moved to Shared Services in 2008. Between 2008 and 2017 Arthur held several senior management roles across Share Services and ITS. In 2018 he was appointed to the role of People Operations Manager. Arthur, during his career, has made a significant and positive contribution to the success of ESB.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we are unable to celebrate Arthur’s retirement in person. However a Zoom event will be organised to mark the occasion on 7th May and details will follow in due course.
Arthur has made many good and long-standing friendships across ESB and will be missed by all. We wish Arthur and Mary every happiness and success long into the future. .
Mary Mulcahy is retiring /
After more than 42 years of service our friend and colleague Mary Mulcahy will leave ESB Networks on the 8th of April, to begin a new chapter of her life’s journey.
Mary began her career with ESB in October 1978. Mary initially joined Typists in Patrick Street where she travelled all over Cork county as Relief Area Clerical Officer. From there Mary worked with the Customer Accounting team in Wilton and then the National Customer Contact Centre. Bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience, Mary travelled to Dublin to work on the MOIP project through 2003 to 2005. Wherever Mary has worked she has formed firm friendships which have lasted throughout the years.
Mary returned to Wilton and became the key contact for Supplier Operations following Market Opening in 2005. Mary is so helpful to both Supplier and fellow team members. Mary pioneered the role of Meter Works Supplier Support and she has patiently tried to educate us all on Market Messages and Retail Market systems. In 2018 another project needed Mary’s vast knowledge and expertise, the Smart Metering Project. As Subject Matter Expert, no one more deserving of the title, Mary has been a vital asset to the team delivery of the changes to the Retail Market System and internal ESB systems which have enabled the rollout of Smart Meters and Smart Services.
On behalf of your many friends and colleagues in ESB we wish to thank you Mary for the tremendous contribution you have given to ESB over 42 years. We will miss Mary’s pleasant disposition, engaging conversation and good fun. We wish you and your husband Val, good health and happiness to enjoy retirement. Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 restrictions it is not possible to celebrate Mary’s retirement with her in person as we would like, but hopefully we will be able to do something later in the year.
