I am delighted to announce the promotion of Cole Carroll to Team Lead. Cole joined us over 2 years ago as a Senior Associate and has been instrumental to the success of this team over that time. Cole will work with myself, and the broader leadership team across Barden, in leading and guiding a team of experts across both part-qualified and operational finance professionals across the Leinster area. A leader, both on and off the pitch, Cole lives and breathes what it means to be Barden, and I have no doubt that she will go from strength to strength in her new role. – Elaine Brady | Managing Partner | Barden
