Speaking in relation to the two new appointments, Peter Bastable, Chief Commercial Officer of Pinergy said, “We are delighted to announce these two important positions for the business which will see David and Patrick work closely with our colleague Liam Cronin in Pinergy’s Cork office, who continues to work with our property clients. Together, the newly enlarged team will be critical in growing our presence and customer base in Munster and Cork in particular in the months ahead. Pinergy has a very strong affiliation and commitment to Munster that is very much reflected in the strategic partnership that we have developed with Munster Rugby, a relationship that goes back to 2014 and today sees Pinergy as the official energy partner to Munster Rugby, powering both Irish Independent Park in Cork and Thomond Park in Limerick.”
