NOW Group appoint new chairman

Gauge NI’s parent social enterprise the NOW Group have recently appointed a new chairman, Gary Irvine.
Gary Irvine is the Managing Director of 4c Executive Search and will be working alongside NOW Group CEO Maeve Monaghan, the board and full staff team to drive further development of the charity across Northern Ireland.
Commenting on the appointment, Maeve Monaghan said: “This is a very exciting time for NOW as we look to expand our core services across Northern Ireland and scale up our social enterprises – Loaf Catering and Cafés, and Gauge CIC.
“Gary is a highly reputed and respected business leader in Northern Ireland, having grown a large, £40m recruitment organisation over 26 years, which was sold last year to a UK plc.  It goes without saying that we are thrilled to have someone with his reputation on board. Gary’s experience and networks in the recruitment industry will no doubt prove to be an extremely valuable asset to NOW, in helping us to work closely with companies across the province to provide new employment opportunities for people with learning difficulties.”
The appointment was also warmly welcomed by incoming chairman, Gary Irvine, who commented: “I have long been an admirer of the work of this wonderful organisation and am delighted to be appointed chairman of NOW.
“I believe that, if given the chance to get into learning and employment, adults with learning difficulties and disabilities can be a huge asset to society, so NOW’s work is extremely encouraging and inspirational.
“I am confident that my expertise in the recruitment industry in Northern Ireland, coupled with NOW’s commitment and ambition to help these people overcome these barriers and achieve their goal of paid employment, will prove to be a successful combination, during this period of growth for the NOW Group.”
All at Gauge NI would like to congratulate Gary on his appointment and look forward to working with him.
