Waterways Ireland has appointed Linda Megahey as finance and personnel director to strengthen corporate leadership as the organisation primes itself for an ambitious growth path in the future.

The move has been described as the latest in a series of “strategic appointments” as the cross-border authority for Ireland’s inland waterways prepares to publish its 10-year strategy in the coming months.

Linda has over 25 years’ experience in commercial and financial management working across a number of sectors and latterly in the food and agri sector with Devenish Nutrition and Bawnbua Foods.

She is a professional chartered accountant with membership of ACCA and is currently a board member and treasurer of Aware Northern Ireland.

Commenting on Megahey’s appointment, Waterways Ireland chief executive John McDonagh said: “Linda brings a wealth of corporate and commercial experience to the organisation and she is ideally placed to support our ambitions for growth.

“Over the next 10 years we will pursue a clearly defined strategy which will have many opportunities and a share of challenges. I’m confident that Linda has the skills and expertise required to enable Waterways Ireland to thrive both now and into the future.”

Megahey said: “I’m delighted to be appointed finance and personnel director of Waterways Ireland and look forward to working with my new colleagues and other stakeholders in contributing further to the future success and growth of Waterways Ireland.”
