I’ve been involved with SUN ever since it was launched by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Irish Foreign Minister Micheál Martin in 2010, when I was still Chief Executive of Concern Worldwide. In that capacity, I was appointed to the SUN Lead Group in April 2012. The Lead Group’s initial term of office was for two years, but this was subsequently extended until the end of 2015. In August of 2014, when the Ebola crisis had reached a very significant pitch, SUN Coordinator David Nabarro was requested by the UN Secretary General to coordinate the United Nations’ response to it. The demands of this new commitment made it impossible for David to continue as SUN Coordinator, so he and Tony Lake, the Chair of the SUN Lead Group, asked me to step into the breach for six months. At the end of that period, I was asked to serve for another six months. By that time, it had been decided to look for a longer-term replacement for David, and so I will be continuing in my present position until that person has been appointed.
