Meet Rehab's new CEO (and have a look at her salary)

Mo Flynn will take on the position vacated by Angela Kerins.

Updated 4.20pm

REHAB HAS ANNOUNCED that the current CEO of Our Lady’s Hospice is to take over as its new chief executive following the departure of Angela Kerins.

Mo Flynn will take up the top position at the charity from the beginning of next year on a salary of €140,000.

The company says that Flynn will also be provided with a “mid-sized company car” and vouched expenses but that there is no bonus scheme in place.

The position became vacant when Kerins resigned in April citing the toll numerous controversies had taken on her and her family. Several revelations were made about the organisation’s finances and Kerins was forced to acknowledge a personal salary of €240,000.

In announcing the appointment of Flynn as its new CEO, Rehab says that the pay level of several senior posts within their management team is to be reduced from next year.

The group says that bonus arrangements that existed for previous management will now be terminated with an average salary cut of 18.5% across the senior management team.

Rehab has also promised to publish all salaries over €65,000 along with management expenses.

Rehab chairman Seán Egan said today that the group is “making significant strides in its programme of transformation and change”.

“We have now appointed a new board and chief executive and have progressed our journey of adopting new governance standards,” he said.

Speaking to Newstalk Lunchtime, Egan said they had no issue in finding someone to work for €140,000.

He added that senior management who took pay cuts “recognised the need to do it”, but “had to adjust”.

Egan said while central fundraising has yet to recover, there is some positive signs of recovery in local fundraising.

Flynn has been CEO of Our Lady’s Hospice and Care Services in Harold’s Cross and Blackrock in Dublin for the past eight years.

She also sits on the boards of health and social care regulator CORU, the Irish Gerontological Society and is a council member of the International Association of Geriatrics and Gerontology.

Flynn said her appointment offers her, “a unique opportunity to lead an organisation which supports thousands of people with disabilities and others with additional support needs”.
