Mr. Nyhan expressed his enthusiasm for his new role and said: ‘Like every organisation, the Cork Society have had to deal with the unprecedented challenges presented by Covid-19.
‘We must also take this time as an opportunity to reflect and revaluate how we do things and challenge ourselves to develop new ways of operating.
‘I intend to use my term to continue to represent chartered accountants in Cork and to be an advocate for the skills and experience that chartered accountants contribute to our community as we recover from the impact of Covid-19.’
Mr. Nyhan is a fellow of the Chartered Accountants Ireland and Credit Manager in AIB. He qualified as a chartered accountant with Parfrey Murphy Chartered Accountants, Cork in 2006.
