Following the completion of the acquisition of Goodbody by AIB Group, Goodbody is pleased to announce the appointment of Martin Tormey as Chief Executive. Martin has been with Goodbody for the past 25 years and has worked in a variety of senior roles across the business over the period. Martin succeeds Roy Barrett, who announced in March that he was stepping down.
Martin will report into Cathy Bryce, Managing Director of Capital Markets in AIB Group.
Goodbody Chairman Michael Somers said:
“Martin brings a wealth of experience to this role and has a strong track record in growing businesses and in strategic development. I look forward to working with him and his team. This is an exciting time for Goodbody – the firm’s new ownership structure strengthens, diversifies and accelerates the growth trajectory of the Goodbody business and it will benefit from AIB’s experience, know-how and substantial resources.
“I also want to take this opportunity on behalf of the Goodbody Board to thank Roy Barrett for his outstanding contribution to the business over the last 25 years and to wish him well.”
Martin joined Goodbody in August 1996 and became Director of Strategic Business Development in 2014. He has been a member of the Senior Management Team since 2014. Previously he was Head of Equity Trading in Goodbody Investment Banking for 13 years. Martin holds a B.Comm and Masters in Finance from University College Dublin.
