Bernard Byrne to depart Davy during 2024

28th November 2023

Bernard Byrne, CEO of Davy, has signalled his intention to step down from his role as Chief Executive and Director of Davy during 2024.

Mr Byrne played a key role in the sale of Davy and in reshaping the business for enhanced growth as part of Bank of Ireland Group. Under his stewardship Davy has significantly grown its wealth business, while it also established new growth pillars including Davy Horizons and a dedicated Decarbonization Team, focussed on supporting corporates in meeting and reporting on their ESG and sustainability obligations.

Mr Byrne joined Davy in May 2019 to take up the position of Head of Capital Markets and Deputy CEO. He took over as CEO in March 2021.

A search process to identify a new CEO will commence immediately. In the interim Bernard will remain in his current role and leading the team as it continues to deliver for clients of the firm and the broader Bank of Ireland Group.
