Athlone Group - Paul McKee, Managing Director
"Bill project managed the financial aspects of the reorganisation of the Irish manufacturing facilities, involving Dublin plant closedown and merger of operations with Cork Plant".
The work, which Bill carried out, produced distinct benefits for the company in the form of direct cash, as well as overseeing the implementation of the restructuring plan. Bill was also instrumental in bringing the company's compliance up to date Bill's fees and expenses, for the entire project in Dublin and Fermoy were more than covered by the actual cash benefits obtained. I believe that without Bills' diligence and investigative work, most, if not all, of these cash benefits would not have been obtained".
