Finola McDonnell: McDonnell is joining the US cable channel CNBC as its new vice president of international marketing and communications

 

Finola McDonnell, Ibec’s former head of public affairs, has had a rather eclectic collection of jobs since she quit the business lobbying group in 2012. She left the confederation to take over as director of Property Industry Ireland, which emerged as an alternative to the Construction Industry Federation. Last summer, she moved on to become head of communications for the pan-European business lobbying group, BusinessEurope. Now she’s moving once again. In a departure from her lobbying roots, McDonnell is joining the US cable channel CNBC as its new vice president of international marketing and communications. She will have responsibility for all external affairs for CNBC in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia . . . everywhere, it seems, apart from the US.
