Dr Sharon McGuinness selected as ECHA’s new Executive Director
In June 2022, the Management Board of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) selected Dr Sharon McGuinness as Executive Director.
Dr Sharon McGuinness, an Irish national, is the CEO of the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) in Ireland since 2018.
Dr McGuinness was one of the candidates preselected by the European Commission after an open competition and interviewed by the Management Board for the post.
Her selection follows that of Bjorn Hansen who retired in March 2022. Since 1 April 2022, Shay O’Malley has been ECHA’s acting Executive Director.
Kerona Scientific would like to congratulate Sharon on her new role, wishing her all the best and are looking forward to working together on a sustainable future for chemicals in Europe.
