FTA Ireland appoints new general manager

Feb 22 | 2017

Freight Transport Association Ireland (FTAI) has appointed Aidan Flynn as its new general manager. Aidan, who was previously business services manager, took up the post on 3 January following the departure in September of Neil McDonnell, who had been with the organisation for three years.

Aidan said, “I am honoured and extremely proud to be chosen to lead the FTA Ireland team. I have worked with FTAI since the formative years of the Association in Ireland and together we have established a viable trade association in the midst of the worst economic recession in our country’s recent history, and have done so by promoting safety and compliance requirements to fleet operators.”

Before joining FTAI, Aidan held a number of senior leadership positions within the transport and logistics sector in Ireland. These included the establishment of a dedicated commercial fleet training business, health and safety and risk management consultancy and road safety initiatives.
