Coface has appointed Walter Kee as commercial manager for Ireland. Kee, who joins in June from Atradius, has over 35 years experience in the credit insurance industry.

He spent more than 20 years at ECGD, rising to regional director before the privatised company was bought by Atradius. During more than a decade with Atradius as manager for Ireland (commercial), he has been instrumental in developing a dynamic credit insurance industry across Ireland.

Based in Belfast, Walter will be responsible for the commercial development of the whole of Ireland for Coface. He will be supported by colleagues in the UK and Bob Frewen, who is country information manager for Coface in Ireland.
Kee will report to Phil Prunty, commercial director of Coface UK and Ireland.
