Former Taoiseach Enda Kenny gets a new job at the Tipperary company

Former Taoiseach Enda Kenny has been given a new role as an independent director at Envetec, a cleantech company based in Ballina, Co. Tipperary.

The company specializes in treating biohazardous waste and is willing to spend €10m developing new technology to dispose of things like personal protective equipment, sharps containers and other laboratory waste on site.

Kenny joins four other new board members including Michael Dowling (CEO of healthcare company Northwell), Eva Pisa (former VP of Roche Diagnostics), Imogen Joss (Chairman of Grant Thornton UK) and James Connelly (CEO of sustainability non-profit organization My Green Lab).

“We have identified five outstanding independent directors who have the right mix of leadership skills and experience, underscored by a genuine collective passion for advancing best-in-class technologies that benefit the environment and the economy,” said Malcolm Bell, President and executive director of Envetec.

“With these new additions to the Board, Envetec is strongly positioned in the diagnostic, pharmaceutical, medical device, and food and beverage industries with an opportunity to impact the environmental footprint of the customers we serve.”

Former Fine Gael leader Enda was also appointed to the board of directors of public relations firm Heneghan Strategic Communications in September 2021, in his first business venture since his term as Taoiseach ended in 2017.

In a statement released to the media last year, Heneghan said Kenny “will serve as a non-executive director of the company, where he will provide guidance on its future strategic direction.”

The Mayo native also appeared in an RTE series called Iarnrod Enda, which saw him travel the country exploring its disused railway lines and learning about local history.
