Mark Duffy easily matches Fingers and Seanie in the pantheon of utterly failed Irish Bankers.
Some people seem to think he was pretty amazing! Looks like he's based in Sweden now.
From his LinkedIn profile http://se.linkedin.com/pub/mark-duffy/20/765/103
“Mark was my CEO for 15 years. A superb leader, combining clarity of vision with a chess master's eye in assembling the strategies, people and processes to get there. Entrepreneurial & a lateral thinker, he brings disparate ideas to cohesive life. Mark would be a superb addition to any executive team seeking out new frontiers.” August 1, 2011

“Mark was CEO at Halifax/BOS during a time when the bank achieved extraordinary success. His ability in leading and building a strong team and influencing and challenging colleagues were key to this. In this regard he was always clear on goals and priorities and embraced and managed change effectively. His open and forward thinking style will be a great help to any business he becomes involved with.” July 25, 2011
