Uni lures top Norman Waterhouse lawyer

Tuesday, 4 October 2005

Norman Waterhouse legal partner Ms Celine McInerney is moving across town to fill a newly created senior management position at the University of Adelaide.

Ms McInerney, who for the past 18 years has been looking after the business and commercial interests of her private and public sector clients at Norman Waterhouse, will assume the role of Chief Prudential Officer at the University.

"Our loss is the University's significant gain, but Celine's move to one of our major clients softens the blow," said Norman Waterhouse senior partner Mr Ted Byrt.

He added that Ms McInerney's knowledge of prudential requirements, her innate ability to identify risk and to lead change, would be of great benefit to the University of Adelaide.

"This appointment will assist the University to strengthen its relationship with the business leaders of Adelaide.

"The University of Adelaide and Norman Waterhouse have enjoyed a close relationship for several years and we are both look forward to this continuing," said Mr Byrt.

Mr Paul Duldig, Executive Director, Finance and Infrastructure at the University of Adelaide, said he was looking forward to Ms McInerney joining his team.

Ms McInerney will continue with her external appointments as a Board member of the Australian Internet Industry Association and the Adelaide Festival Centre Foundation, and as Governor of the State Theatre Company.
