Fiona O'Connor

With over 30 years’ working in many international financial services leadership roles, I have successfully built and led high performing teams through changing economic cycles. I have held progressively senior executive roles including Co-Head of Blackstone Credit European Office and Head of European Credit Research team, in addition to Board level roles.  

My depth of experience, skills and insight gives me a sharp perspective on career progression and reach.

A qualified executive coach (IMI Professional Diploma, EMCC accredited), with a diploma in Company Direction (Institute of Directors). I am also a licensed practitioner of world-class leadership assessments: MBTI, EQi 2.0 and Emotional Capital Report.   I hold a B.Comm (Hons.) from UCD Quinn School of Business and a Masters in Finance from UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School.

For me, nothing beats helping a graduate unbundle the options to start or ignite their career, or helping a client pivot in a new direction. A “can do” attitude and an eagerness to go the extra mile means clients receive exceptional value working with me.
