Finbarr Griffin appointed as Head of Corporate Advisory


Goodbody is pleased to announce that Finbarr Griffin has been appointed as Head of Corporate Advisory with responsibility for developing the overall strategy for Corporate Advisory within Investment Banking. The Goodbody team of over 30 senior corporate financiers and advisers based across Dublin and London will report to Finbarr as the firm continues to grow its share of the corporate advisory market in Ireland as well as scaling up its sector-focused advisory services in the UK. Following the acquisition of Goodbody by AIB, the Corporate Advisory team will be organised into three teams: 

  • PLC Advisory and Corporate Broking: advising publicly listed companies on equity and debt capital market transactions, mergers and acquisitions and bringing new companies to the stock market via Initial Public Offerings.
  • Growth Companies: helping companies in technology, healthcare and other sectors access capital to fund their growth strategies. 
  • Cleantech, Energy, Infrastructure and Semi State: advising companies in these sectors that are focused on innovative technology and sustainable solutions. 

Martin Tormey, Goodbody CEO said: “I’m really delighted that Finbarr will lead our ambitions to continue to build out from our established, broadly-based Irish franchise and create a much larger Investment Banking business focussed on sectors where we can truly add value from our expertise in research, execution and corporate advice.  He and the team will also work closely with the corporate banking teams of AIB in both Ireland and the UK to develop business opportunities, leveraging off our combined capabilities across equity and debt financing, and other underwriting opportunities.

Finbarr Griffin joined Goodbody in 1999 and became Head of Corporate Finance in 2016. Previously with Cazenove, Lazard and PwC, Finbarr holds an engineering degree from University Dublin and D ComSc from Cambridge University. 


Finbarr Griffin,
