With the latest signings announced earlier today Academy Manager Peter Malone gives his thoughts on the newest members to join the Munster Rugby Academy.
Speaking at the announcement of the business advisory partnership Munster Rugby CEO Garrett Fitzgerald outlined the significance of the business advisory role. He explained "as an organisation we have witnessed incredible growth across our business from the number of people directly employed by Munster Rugby to the structure of the professional and domestic game. Like any business we face ongoing commercial challenges and it is vital that we have access to the best financial and business advice available as we develop our new strategic plans for the medium and long term."’
He added "We are obviously delighted to continue working with the Limerick based team in Focus Consulting who have worked on projects with Munster Rugby since 2004."
Welcoming the announcement Managing Director of Focus Consulting Brian McGann said "We are delighted to work with a very unique business and sport brand. Munster Rugby conjures up such a level of positivity in this challenging environment, however, its business and growth ambitions must be addressed in the same manner as any commercial enterprise that we deal with. The variety of professional service skills we bring from chartered accountants, corporate financiers and strategic business consultants highlights the depth of skills needed by an organisation such as Munster Rugby as they prepare for the next phase of their development process".
