Ms McClelland has been interim CEO of NMBI since June 2019 and during that time the County Down native has guided NMBI through a major digitisation and modernisation programme, as well as dealing successfully with the challenges brought by the pandemic.

“Following a rigorous recruitment process, on behalf of the Board, I am delighted to announce that Ms Sheila McClelland has been appointed as Chief Executive Officer of NMBI,” said Ms Cassidy.

“Sheila’s wealth of experience in the public sector and her solid leadership in the modernisation of NMBI over the past two and a half years made her the stand-out candidate for the role. I want to wish her the very best as she continues to lead the NMBI team in the time ahead.”
