Ireland continues to be a very attractive investment location for overseas companies, says Kevin Elliot, Bank of Ireland’s newly appointed head of global foreign direct investment.
He will lead Bank of Ireland’s FDI business, which supports two out of every three FDI companies entering the country. Despite the pandemic the FDI sector continues to remain resilient, led by life sciences and tech sector companies.
Mr Elliot will direct the team from his California base, established as a key contact point for the bank in a vital growth market, and further cementing a new alliance formed with IBOS, the global banking network.
Kevin takes on his new role after six years as a senior vice-president in Bank of Ireland Corporate Banking. He joined the bank in 2015 after eight years with IDA Ireland.
Michael Lauhoff, head of Corporate Banking, Bank of Ireland, said: “We are delighted to appoint Kevin to this very important role. His vast knowledge of FDI, and longstanding direct experience of working in this area, will enable him to act as a trusted adviser to companies looking to invest and grow in Ireland.
