THE CENTRAL REMEDIAL Clinic (CRC) has announced its new board of govenors as the organisation attempts to “rebuild its reputation”.

It follows the entire board resigning late last year following a controversy over the use of charitable funds to pay any additional salary amounts over the Department of Health’s pay scale.

Former Chief Executive of the CRC Paul Kiely received a top-up of €135,000, on top of his basic salary of €116,000.

The board appointed today will receive no remuneration, a statement from the organisation said:

Their role will be to govern, guide and support the CRC as it moves forward and rebuilds its reputation both nationally and internationally.

All were appointed using Boardmatch, an independent organisation, and were selected based on their competencies.

The new CEO, Stephanie Manahan, was appointed using the Public Appointments Service, and will take on the role at the start of next month.

She is a former Chair of the National Association of Occupational Therapists of Ireland and most recently was Deputy Hospital Manager in Connolly Hospital, Dublin.

The new chairman, Kieran J. Timmins, said the new board “faces many challenges”.

“The most important task involves rebuilding the trust and goodwill of the people who use our services, our staff and our other supporters,” he noted.

“It is my understanding that the report of the interim administrator is due to be presented to the Director General of the HSE in the coming weeks.”

I would expect there will be many important recommendations contained within this report and the implementation of those recommendations where appropriate will be an absolute priority for the incoming board.

Here’s the full list:

  • Chairman: Kieran J. Timmins, currently CEO and a founding member of SmartCentric Technologies International Ltd.
  • Vice-Chairperson: Carol Ann Casey, Managing Director of CA Compliance; a firm that specialises in Human Resources consulting and governance services.
  • Emer Moriarty Crowley, a senior corporate lawyer, specialising in corporate law and governance.
  • Damien Daly, Director of Marketing and Customer Analytics at Bank of Ireland Group.
  • Tom Fleming, Director of Human Resources at Volkswagen Group Ireland
  • Sean Hickey, Head of Information Technology for Boots Contract Manufacturing
  • Malcolm MacLachlan, Professor of Global Health at Trinity College Dublin and Extraordinary Professor of Rehabilitation at Stellenbosch University, South Africa
  • Chris McEllhinney, a Chartered Accountant
  • Tom Quinn, a qualified Barrister and is retired having served as RTÉ Group Secretary.
