Appointment of new Supervisory Board member

Mr. Kevin Cardiff was appointed on 30th November 2022 as a new member to the Supervisory Board of HCAP replacing Mr. David Vegara. He was proposed as a candidate by the ESM and the European Commission and received the consent of the Minister of Finance, Mr. Christos Staikouras. His term expires on 15th October 2026.

Kevin Cardiff is a non-executive director of KBC Bank Ireland, and performs occasional assignments in the public and private sector.  He is chair of the Audit Committee of the Irish Defense Ministry.  In 2020, Cardiff completed a three-year term as Chairperson of the Board of Audit of the European Stability Mechanism. In the past, he had served a six-year term (2012-18) as a member of the European Court of Auditors, and as Secretary General in the Department of Finance of Ireland between 2010 and 2012.

The SB would like to express its heartfelt appreciation and sincere thanks to David Vegara who resigned from the Supervisory Board for reasons of time commitment due to his professional obligations. He has served six years, starting from HCAP’s inception.  Mr. Vegara’s contribution was exceptional, always substantive, offering actionable and practical advice.
