DUBLIN, 24-7-2015 — /EuropaWire/ — The Minister for Finance has invited expressions of interest from suitably qualified candidates in the position of Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland. This arises from the stated intention of Governor Patrick Honohan to retire towards the end of the year.
Under the Central Bank Act 1942, the Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland is appointed by the President of Ireland on the advice of the Government for a term of seven years. Given this office holder position is of unique importance to the Irish financial system and the Irish economy, the Minister has decided to undertake a comprehensive search process to fill the position. To ensure as broad a search as possible, the Minister has issued a call for expressions of interest, which will be accompanied by an extensive national and international executive search process to identify suitably qualified candidates in Ireland and abroad.
