Solicitor Niamh Muldoon appointed new CEO of Veterinary Council
Solicitor Niamh Muldoon has been appointed as registrar and CEO of the Veterinary Council of Ireland (VCI).
Ms Muldoon, currently head of corporate governance and secretary to council at the Medical Council of Ireland, will take up the position in April.
Before joining the Medical Council in 2013, she was a solicitor in private practice, spending over a year as a partner at Holohan Solicitors in Dublin (now known as Holohan Lane).
The VCI is a statutory body set up under the Veterinary Practice Act 2005 to regulate and manage the practice of veterinary medicine and veterinary nursing in the State in the public interest.
Peadar O’Scanaill, president of the Veterinary Council of Ireland, said: “Niamh has a wealth of experience in government, private practice and most recently in regulation of the medical profession.
“I am confident that Niamh will bring superb leadership and a developed perspective and insight to the role.”
Ms Muldoon added: “I look forward to engaging with all stakeholders in the development of the strategy for the council and building on the success of the VCI to date.”
