​The Irish Headquartered Dornan Group has confirmed the appointment of Micheál O’Connor to the role of Managing Director for the business.

A Chartered Quantity Surveyor and Past President of the Society of Chartered Surveyors of Ireland, Micheál brings almost 30 years of experience in the construction industry to the role. Prior to joining Dornan, Micheál was Vice President and General Manager for Ireland and Northern Europe with Jacobs.

 Today’s announcement also marks the continued growth and success of the company in Ireland, UK, and Europe with record turnover of €486m recorded in 2020 – up from €332m in 2019. As the company eyes further expansion, a number of strategic hires have been made in the last year with more recruitment on the cards over the next 18 months.

Dornan Group directly employs more than 1,300 people across its various offices and projects in Ireland, UK, and Europe, and employs a further 2,500 through its supply chain in these regions. The company has almost doubled its headcount in the past five years due to its growth in engineering, modern methods of construction and commissioning.

Having joined Dornan Group as Deputy Managing Director in March 2020, Micheál has spent the past 14 months working closely with the senior leadership team of Brian Acheson (CEO), Paul Flynn (Group Operations Director) and David Myers (Group Commercial Director) as well as Oliver Lonergan, the outgoing Managing Director.

Oliver, who has held the role of Managing Director since 2004, will remain with the business as a Director for the next three years focused primarily on the Company’s continued business growth and project governance.
