Barclays Bank Ireland has hired Sinéad Neeson as a relationship director within its multinational corporate team.

Neeson will be responsible for supporting the bank’s US and multinational clients operating in Ireland through the delivery of a range of products and services, including cash management, risk solutions, liquidity and working capital finance.

Based in Dublin, Neeson will report to Rob Roughan, director of multinational companies in Ireland.

She joins Barclays from Allied Irish Banks (AIB), where she worked for 12 years, most recently as relationship manager within corporate banking.

Andrew Hastings, CEO of Barclays Ireland, said that by increasing support for inward investors Neeson’s appointment will help create “jobs and wealth at a critical time for the Irish economy”.
