New Chairman for London Society

May 23, 2019

Peter Keenan-Gavaghan has been elected Chair for the 2019/20 year, succeeding veteran Chartered Accountants Ireland London Society Chair Gerry Nicholas, who has been Chairman of the London Society since its inception in 2009. 

Celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year, the society is looking forward to hosting its existing calendar of events as well as new events including hosting its first FCA conferring Ceremony and welcoming Chartered Accountants Ireland’s Chartered Star to the One Young World Conference due to be held in London in October. 

Chartered Accountants Ireland Immediate Past President, Feargal McCormack noted “Gerry has been pivotal in building the London Society to where it is today and on behalf of the institute, we thank him for his tireless efforts and wish Peter all the very best in the year ahead”. 

Peter has been an active member of the London Society and will be known to many local members.  He is a member of Chartered Accountants Ireland Council and works for Barclays.  Speaking at the London Society’s AGM on 14 May, Peter stated that whilst he “cannot possibly step into Gerry’s shoes in quite the same way, he looks forward to working with the Committee for Members in London”.

In addition, Serena O’Keeffe who has been Treasurer of the London Society for the last 3 years, was elected Vice Chair and existing Committee members Tricia O’Donovan and Greg McAnenly have been elected Secretary and Treasurer respectively.
