Appointment of Board Director
We are delighted to advise you that Una McGirr is joining the Board of the Farmleigh Fellowship.
Una is Managing Director of Hume Brophy Asia, an Irish-owned corporate communications and public relations firm with offices in Dublin, London, Brussels, Paris and most recently Singapore. She has been based in Singapore for the last five years, and has a breadth of business and strategic contacts from across the region.
Una brings with her over 20 years of international corporate communications expertise, specialising in strategic communications, media and investor relations and stakeholder and crisis management.
She spent 13 years with British Telecom plc in a range of senior management roles in London, Brussels and Dublin. Una was Head of the President’s Office, BT Europe with responsibility for business strategy, corporate governance, and communications. Una was then appointed Head of European Media Relations and Public Affairs at a critical time when the telecoms sector was undergoing unprecedented de-regulation and liberalisation across the EU region. She was subsequently appointed Director of Communications at BT Ireland, with strategic communications responsibility for the integration of BT Republic of Ireland and BT Northern Ireland.
Una believes passionately in what the Farmleigh Fellowship is aiming to achieve. She adds strength to the board in terms of strategic planning, corporate brand positioning and media relations.
We welcome Una to the Board and look forward to working with her as we further develop the Farmleigh Fellowship.
