July Promotions 2021 Mason Alexander

Mason Alexander is delighted to announce 3 new promotions across our Tech and Investment Divisions.

"Although I always believe in looking forward, it’s important to take a step back and recognise what has been achieved over a certain period of time. When I look back at H1 of this year, what my colleagues in Mason Alexander have done is nothing short of exceptional. They have delivered on targets month on month; they have brought new ideas to the table to increase productivity and create a better working week (like 4 hour Fridays with no internal meetings); and a renewed focus on how to solve our clients talent challenges and potential business outcomes that can be delivered. 

This has all been a collective effort across the company. The culture and teamwork is the best it’s ever been and everyday working with these people is action focused and fun. However, there are three people who have really stood out for many reasons this year and we are proud of them for the promotions that they deserve: Sophie Kelly - Associate Director; Daire Connolly - Senior Principal; and Anna O'Sullivan - Senior Principal. Well done to you all." – Andrew Lynch, CEO 

The promotions include:

Anna O'Sullivan – Senior Principal

“Anna has been a fantastic addition to the MA team since joining in 2019. She is incredibly hardworking, driven and cares passionately about her clients and candidates. Anna is also a born leader; always honest and full of energy and ideas while setting exceptional standards across the whole business. I can’t wait to see her continue to progress with us and delighted to promote her to Senior Principal. Very well deserved” ­­– James Lynch, Director

Dáire Connolly – Senior Principal

“Dáire is a very experienced recruiter and solid team player. Over the past year, I have seen Dáire step up into a lead role on the team, and have been delighted to see how natural this transition has been. Dáire spends a lot of his time helping the wider team onboard smoothly, and level up. He genuinely cares about the people he works with, colleagues, clients, and candidates and it shows in his hard work and results. I wish when I was getting started in my career I had somebody like Dáire to support me, we are very lucky to have him on the team, and I look forward to seeing his career develop further at Mason Alexander.” – James Bowles, Director, Technology

Sophie Kelly – Associate Director

“Sophie joined Mason Alexander at a really critical time when we decided to consolidate a number of small teams into one large technology team. Sophie immediately helped bring our people together, working as one powerful and supportive unit. As the team grew she showed genuine passion in mentoring, coaching, and training new joiners and without request invested significant time across the entire business in training. Sophie got the team firing on all cylinders, completely dedicated to delivery, and providing an exceptional experience for our clients and candidates, all while having good fun as a team, and creating a very strong bond. I can honestly say the MA Tech team has never been in a stronger position, and that is thanks to Sophie’s tireless effort, selfless attitude and why she is a natural-born leader!” – James Bowles, Director, Technology

Congratulations to all on your promotions!
