Meet the Candidates Standing for Nomination to the Board

We are happy to announce that following the application process, the following 2 candidates are hoping to be nominated to the board: Henrik Gard and Mark O'Donnell.

  • Henrik Gard

    Henrik Gard

    Henrik Gard is originally from Sweden but for the last seven years he’s been based in Ireland as an acrobat and circus performer. He says that his career caught speed in 2015 when he was part of the ISACS NEST programme creating and performing his own solo show. Today he is co-director of the company Cikada Circus, founded in 2017, with his acrobatic partner Ali Stanger.

    He is also one of the founding members of the acrobatic ensemble group Síolta Circus, and performs regularly with Belfast company Tumble Circus. If that is not enough, Henrik is a leading figure and initiator of Irish Acro, Ireland’s first and only acrobatics convention now in its 5th year running.

  • Mark O'donnell

    Mark O'Donnell

    Mark O’Donnell was appointed by Macnas in April 2019 to become the company’s new Executive Director.
    Mark’s background is in public management, and he has over 20 years experience working in Galway across a broad range of functions for both City and County local authorities, as well as a number of years as Director of the West Regional Authority, where he managed EU co-funded projects.

    He led the business engagement component of Galway’s successful European Capital of Culture bid in 2016, and went on to project manage the early stages of the company set-up before returning to Galway City Council in 2017 to work on capital project planning & delivery, and more recently, HR management.
    A graduate of NUI Galway, Mark has academic qualifications in Law, Finance, Corporate Governance & Management.
