Uber picks up John Moran

The former secretary general for the Irish Department of Finance now acts as a consultant for Uber and Nomura.

John Moran, the former secretary general for the Department of Finance in the Irish government, has joined ride-hailing service Uber and financial holding company Nomura as a consultant, according to the Irish Independent.

Moran held his position in the Irish government from March 2012 until May 2014 when he left to focus on other interests. While in his governmental position he became a director of the European Investment Bank, a job he still holds.

Moran is also involved in the campaign to make Limerick the European City of Culture 2020.

US-based Uber operates a smartphone app that enables people to arrange journeys from other users of the app who have passed additional vetting. The company is currently expanding into Europe and hopes to hire 300 staff in Limerick.

Nomura is a Japan-based financial holding company that acquired the Asian and European investment banking and equity units of Lehman Brothers Holdings in October 2008. The firm specialises in wholesale banking and financing.
