Yve O’Driscoll, Director General and John McGrane, Executive Director, were delighted to welcome Paddy Walker, MD of J Leon & Company, to Dublin on 27th September 2018. Paddy joined members and guests of FBN Ireland for a private conversation and supper at FBN’s offices in Merrion Square where he delivered a superb presentation, based on his personal experience, on methods of pruning the shareholding of a family business using internal buy back mechanisms.  Paddy gave generously of his time and advice to members during one-to-one discussions afterwards and members took the opportunity to catch up with other families whilst they dined.
