Charter CEO to join IDA Ireland

Charter Medical's founding CEO Dave Shanahan is leaving Charter to join IDA Ireland as Global Head of Life Sciences responsible for leading IDA's global team in attracting foreign direct investment (FDI) to Ireland.

After the successful sale of Charter Medical Diagnostic imaging to Alliance Medical and the increased support of the HSE for St Mary's Rapid Access Clinic, Shanahan said "he felt Charter had grown from its foundations and was on a stable footing for the future. The Charter team have been fantastic to work with. We always remembered we were there to serve our patients and that's what made it such a great team and a great experience".

In his new role Shanahan will work with global colleagues in the USA, Europe and Asia targetting the senior decision-makers in Multinationals to set up new operations and expand existing operations in Ireland. Mr Shanahan will join the organisation in June.
