Minister Donohoe commends Sharon Donnery as an official of the highest calibre

 

The Minister for Finance, Paschal Donohoe T.D., this evening (Wednesday) acknowledges the achievement of Sharon Donnery in being one of the final two candidates for the role of Chair of the European Single Supervisory Mechanism.  

 

He stated:  ‘The fact that Sharon Donnery was one of the final two candidates for this important position reflects her deep knowledge of, and experience in, financial regulation, and the high esteem in which she is held across Europe.  I also want to thank Sharon for putting her name forward for the role. It is important that Irish officials of the highest calibre go forward for these important international positions.  I look forward to continuing to work with Sharon in her Central Bank role’.

 

“I would also like to congratulate Mr. Enria on his nomination, I have no doubt he will serve Europe well.”
