Handing on the Baton

ChairmanPeter Cosgrove, CPL, recently retired as Chairman of JAI. Peter joined the board in 2007 and served as Vice Chairman for a year before succeeding Brendan Doyle as Chairman from February 2014 to April 2016. Peter was presented with gifts on behalf of the board of directors and staff to mark his steadfast service to JAI. Indeed, Peter's dedicated support over the past nine years has left an indelible mark on the organisation.

He is pictured with CEO Helen Raftery and Hugh McCallum, Accenture, who now assumes the Chair. Hugh will serve as Chair for a three year term and we wish him every success in his new role.
