EVA is pleased to announce the appointment of Con Quigley as Chair of the Board of Directors. Con joined EVA’s Board of Directors in 2012, working on areas of sponsorship, citizen engagement and general governance. As a partner in corporate finance and strategy with BDO Corporate Finance, Con has over 25 years’ professional experience across a range of commercial activities, including property investment, entertainment and arts, technology and media.

Of his appointment as Chair, Con says: ‘I am very proud to take up the position of Chair of EVA International at a crucial time in its history. Founded in 1977 by Limerick-based artists, EVA has grown enormously over the years to become a truly ambitious international project, working with artists and curators from all over the world. In the context of a pandemic that has introduced many new challenges for arts organisations, I look forward to working with others on EVA’s dedicated Board of Directors in supporting CEO Matt Packer and the EVA team in the further growth of EVA’s ambitions at this significant juncture for the arts in Ireland. I would also like to thank outgoing Chair Mike Fitzpatrick for his many years of dedication to EVA International. We will continue to benefit from Mike’s experience and leadership for many years to come.’
