MCI Announces New Generation Leadership at Ovation Global DMC

Ovation Global DMC affirms growth plans and commitment to client services:

  • Aoife Delaney promoted to Global Sales Director for Ovation Global DMC
  • Karine Buggy as Global Operations Director for Ovation Global DMC to join MCI Global Operations leadership team
  • MCI recognises the contributions of Padraic Gilligan and Patrick Delaney to global growth

“MCI started over 25 years ago as a destination management company in Geneva so DMC is a foundational, legacy competency within the company. MCI offers DMC services both stand-alone under the Ovation brand and as part of MCI’s unique end-to-end customer service offering,” said Roger Tondeur, President of MCI.

Following the sale of the Ovation Group Ireland to MCI in 2007 and the successful completion of a 5 year earn out, Ovation Group Ireland founders Patrick Delaney and Padraic Gilligan are set to leave Ovation Global DMC in Dec 2013, having served as Product Practice leaders for Destination Services at MCI. Their intentions are to remain within the meetings and events industry and work with clients globally in the areas of strategy, education and marketing.

MCI CEO Sebastien Tondeur said: “We are grateful to Patrick and Padraic for the energy, vision and values which they brought to MCI since 2007. We look forward to exploring new ways of working together as they evolve into the next phase of their career journey. I am particularly excited to work closer with Karine and Aoife, a modern, powerful and dynamic duo of whom we can only be proud.”
