Mr O’Grady joins the company from rival Liberty Insurance

Insurer FBD has announced the appointment of John O'Grady as its new chief financial officer and as an executive director.

Mr Grady, who joins from rival Liberty Insurance, is to join the board in July. As CFO, he will be replacing Paul D'Alton, who has been held the role on an interim basis.
