John Carmody

This virtual Memory Book has been set up for colleagues to share their messages of condolence and their memories of John Carmody. 

John was with the Bank since its inception in 2014 and prior to that he had worked with Capital for Enterprise, one of the Bank’s predecessors. He was an important and key member of the GWS team over those years and played a pivotal role during the launch of the Covid-19 response schemes during the pandemic.

The virtual Memory Book will be open until the end of February.
