We are pleased to announce that Gary Quin, a Senior Advisor to Credit Suisse and the former CEO of Blackrock Communications, is supporting The Dusk Foundation as a Strategic Advisor for the Dusk Network.
Gary Quin is a 25-year veteran of the telecommunications and media space with knowledge of the European, the Middle Eastern, African and even Latin American market. Gary’s expertise is in the building, financing, and acquisition of profitable businesses that operate in the sector, and draws heavily from his four years spent at Conolly Corporate Finance as a Managing Director in Ireland and his time with MNO Digicel in the Caribbean. At CCF Gary oversaw the provision of financial advisory services to telecommunications and media clients for mergers and acquisitions, private equity leveraged buyouts and so on.
After leaving CCF in 2005, Gary joined Blackrock Communications as CEO. In keeping with the theme of Gary’s career, Blackrock is a consulting firm that focuses on private equity and debt financing mostly in the telecoms and media space.
In 2010 Credit Suisse EMEA called on Gary to become a Senior Advisor and lead their investment banking and capital markets division in Ireland. Since signing on Gary has led Credit Suisse to Euromoney’s 2011 award for Best Investment Bank in Ireland and has raised over €12bn for Irish corporates since 2013 including 5 IPOs and the largest REIT IPO in EMEA since 2010 and largest Irish IPO since 2007. He continues to serve in this capacity at present.
Gary received his MBA from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland and his BA (Honours) from University College Cork, Ireland. He has also studied at the Harvard Business School, IESE and the University of Oxford. His thesis was on the development of the European High Yield and Leveraged Finance market.
The Dusk Foundation benefits significantly from his senior management experience in both telecommunications and investment banking. Gary also comes to the project with plenty of experience sitting on corporate boards as a non-executive director. This gives us the added advantage of having guided foresight, independent and impartial critique, access to third-party consultants, and strategic direction for the commercial attractiveness of the project as a whole.
