Keaney new Siro chief executive
ESB-Vodafone joint venture Siro has appointed a new chief executive. The telco, which is supplying broadband services in more than 30 regional towns and cities, said its chief financial officer John Keaney would be taking over from current chief executive Sean Atkinson.
The switch is part of an agreement between the ESB and Vodafone, whereby one person from each company assumes the role of chief executive every four years.
Following his stint at Siro, Mr Atkinson is returning to the ESB to take up a new role as head of ESB International.
Prior to his position in Siro, Mr Keaney was with Vodafone for 10 years where he served in a variety of roles including head of financial operations and financial controller.
