Filed: 30th April 2007 11:39 AM
The Grangegorman Development Agency has announced the appointment of Mr. Gerry Murphy as chief executive officer of the Agency, from June 2007. Mr. Murphy joins the Grangegorman Development Agency from the National Roads Authority where he was the Head of Public Partnerships and Network Tolling since 1999.
Announcing Mr. Murphy’s appointment, John Fitzgerald, chairman of the Grangegorman Development Agency, said: “I am delighted that Gerry is joining us. He will take the helm at the very start of an exciting development project which aims to create a new city quarter, comprising a DIT campus which will re-house over 20,000 DIT students along with health and community services and recreational amenities.’
‘I am confident that Gerry’s wealth of experience and knowledge of property planning and development through his work with the National Roads Authority and other high profile projects will prove advantageous as he drives this development to completion,” continued Fitzgerald.
Mr. Murphy is taking on the chief executive officer role of the Agency at an ideal time as work on preparing a masterplan design for Grangegorman gets underway. The masterplan section of the development is expected to complete at the end of 2007.
An engineer by profession, Mr. Murphy has project managed very large infrastructure projects on behalf of Dublin City Council and Dublin County Council. He has also had particular involvement in developing the public private partnership model for financing public infrastructure on behalf of the National Roads Authority. Mr. Murphy previously worked for Concern in Tanzania as a Water Projects Engineer.
Mr. Murphy holds academic qualifications in both Engineering and Teaching and is a Chartered Member of Engineers Ireland since 1988.
