Lawyer-turned-banker-turned-mandarin still up for a challenge

  • John Moran, the former mandarin who was at the heart of some testy exchanges with EU paymasters during Ireland’s bailout years, may be an unlikely steadfast Europhile.
  • So much so, he’s the driving force behind a planned series of EU seminars and exhibitions in Limerick next year, known as European Expo 2020, centred around an exhibition from a European Investment Bank art collection to be hosted in venues around his native city.
  • Moran worked with Irish law firm McCann Fitzgerald for three years to 1994, working mainly in its New York office, before joining Zurich Financial Services, where he helped set up Zurich Capital Markets in Ireland.
