About Seán

Let me introduce myself. I was, for several years prior to 2000, both European Officer and Head of the Local Government Unit at the Institute of Public Administration. In these roles I was responsible for all IPA training and development initiatives for the local government and local development systems in Ireland.  I also represented Ireland on a number of European Commission Expert Committees. In 2000, I re-established the Irish operations of Environmental Resources Management (ERM), the largest, independent, full service environmental consultancy in the world. I stepped down as Managing Partner on commencing my doctoral programme in the National University of Ireland, Maynooth in 2004. I completed this successfully in 2010. I have now established a new Company to support both public and private clients confronting the many challenges of public policy development at local and national level in Ireland.
