Replacing Hennessy is Michael Gallagher who has been appointed Head of LM Ericsson Ltd, Ireland, which he will perform in addition to his existing responsibilities within Ericsson's Research & Development facility in Ireland. Michael has previously worked for Ericsson in Canada, Sweden and has been employed with Ericsson for 30 years mainly in Research and Development.
