Central Bank of Ireland Deputy Governor to take up Senior Role at ECB

The Central Bank of Ireland this week announced that Sharon Donnery, Deputy Governor of Financial Regulation, will take up a senior role at the European Central Bank.

Deputy Governor Sharon Donnery said, “I am delighted to have been appointed to this role at the European Central Bank. I am excited to be joining an institution of such calibre and standing and look forward to starting my new role at the end of the year. Until then I will focus on delivering and completing a number of my priorities in my current role. It has really been a privilege to work in so many roles for the Central Bank of Ireland, delivering on our mandate in the public interest. I am proud of the work we do every day on behalf of the people of Ireland and the quality and dedication of my colleagues.”

Governor Gabriel Makhlouf said, “I am delighted that the Governing Council of the ECB has appointed Sharon to this important role. It is a fantastic opportunity for her to build on her international experience in a senior leadership position in a European institution. Given her international reputation, including her current work as Ireland’s member of the ECB’s Supervisory Board – not to mention the important role she has played in improving the resilience of the Irish and European banking system in the aftermath of the financial crisis – an opportunity of this nature for Sharon is no surprise to me. I know she will make an enormous contribution in this exciting new role. On behalf of the Central Bank’s Commission and all the staff of the Bank I would like to wish her every success at the ECB.”

Deputy Governor Donnery will remain at the Central Bank of Ireland until late 2024, continuing with her current responsibilities with a particular focus on finalising and delivering the Central Bank’s transformation of Regulation and Supervision.
