A Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland, Paul Dunne has been a Montreal resident since the late 1970s. After working briefly as controller of a real estate development company, he joined Alcan Aluminium Limited in Montreal initially in charge of global consolidation of the financial results and later as manager of financial planning for the Alcan group. He taught advanced accounting in the CA program in McGill University for ten years and guest-lectured in the MBA programs in McGill, Concordia and HEC.
After leaving Alcan, Paul joined Domfoam International as CFO. In 1994, he left to found Eircan (now JPDO), an independent accounting firm providing cloud-based support to small businesses.
Paul has been engaged in volunteer activity since he arrived in Montreal, principally with the YMCA where he served as board chair in Montreal and vice-chair of YMCA Canada and St. Patrick’s Society where he served in many capacities, most recently as President.
Paul lives in Ile-des-Soeurs with one of his two sons and travels frequently back to Ireland without having to take time off work thanks to the magic of the internet.
