He acknowledges the contribution of the Economics Department at Maynooth University in helping him develop his career.

I am sure that this had a significant impact when I first attempted to enter the economics profession with Goodbody Stockbrokers. I would have no hesitation in recommending the economics department in Maynooth to future students in the field of finance."
