THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE of the Road Safety Authority Noel Brett has tendered his resignation from the body.

Brett has been the chief executive of the authority since 2005 and was involved in the establishment of the RSA in 2006. Chairman of the RSA Gay Byrne praised Brett’s work and wished him well.
“He was instrumental in guiding the RSA from its establishment in 2006 through its formative years to a point where the Authority is now held in the highest regard not just in Ireland but internationally.

“During his time as CEO, Noel has been a dedicated and outstanding public servant.

He will be a big loss not only to road safety but to the public sector in Ireland.

Brett will take on the role of chief executive of the Irish Banking Federation, the umbrella body for banking and financial services in Ireland.

The president of the IBF John Reynolds was pleased that Brett will be making the move.

“He takes up his new role at a critical time as we strive to return the Irish banking sector to profitability and build step by step on the progress that has been made to date in restoring confidence and rebuilding trust in our sector,” said Reynolds.
