2010 Dublin Reception
On January 20th, about 50 ladies met in Dublin at the Four Seasons Hotel for the first IAWA regional reception of the year.
Several IAWA members and board members joined including Zoe Layden, Mylène Scholnick, Kathy Flanagan, Lynne Guiney, Liz Barry, Alison Mason and Mary Ellen Jones.
Thanks to three generous sponsors and the persistence of Mary Ellen Jones at Pratt & Whitney, Liz Barry at EADS and Carolanne Cuningham at GECAS, IAWA was able to secure a wonderful venue for cocktails at the Four Seasons. We are very grateful to our sponsors and appreciate their support.
Many wonderful women attended, coming from banks (Commerzbank, LBBW, JP Morgan, VTB Leasing, US Exim Bank), leasing companies (AWAS, LCI, RBS, GECAS, Aercap, APFL, Aircastle, CIT, Macquarie Aviation, Volito) as well as law firms (Matheson Ormsby Prentice, Clyde & Co, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Walkers, Reed Smith, Plane Legal, Mason Hayes & Curran, Clifford Chance, McCann FitzGerald) and manufacturers (Airbus, Boeing, Pratt & Whitney).
