Leadership Group

The Commissioner has a Leadership Group which meets regularly to make decisions on the operational day-to-day running of the Office. The Group also meets with the Commissioner regularly to make decisions on the strategic direction of the office. 

The Leadership Group consists of the following Team Leaders:

  • Máire McCormack, Head of Strategy
  • Diego Quiroz, Acting Head of Strategy
  • Ezmie McCutcheon, Head of Communications
  • Nicola Vallance-Ross, Head of Corporate Services
  • Nick Hobbs, Head of Advice and Investigations

About the Group

The Leadership Group has been in place since June 2018. Since August 2018 the Group has decided to meet every two weeks. It holds alternate meetings, one without the Commissioner to plan the operational day-to-day running of the Office, and the other with the Commissioner to plan and make decisions regarding the strategic direction of the work of the Office.

Minutes of meetings since April 2012 can be found below. Get in touch if you would like minutes from previous years.

Where the Group needs to discuss an item in private – usually personnel matters relating to individual staff terms and conditions – it may hold an Executive Group meeting. Executive Group minutes are minuted separately, and their minutes are not published.

Prior to June 2018 the Team Leaders met with the Commissioner as the Management Team.
