On Wednesday, Des Burke took up post as interim chief executive of MOSL. Burke

MOSL chair Jim Keohane announced the news on Tuesday, just two weeks after announcing the search was underway on 19 November. Keohane told the market: “Des has considerable experience leading large and complex businesses in areas that closely match our opportunities and challenges, where compliance was critical to the business, and where he built strong working relationships with regulators.
"In his most recent role as chief executive at PGDS for example, Des led a technology company with a remit to deliver a wide range of digital and IT services to the Prudential Group of regulated companies. Before that, Des’s senior roles in the investment bank Morgan Stanley and BP brought similar demands for high quality IT project design, management, delivery and compliance in regulated companies.”
Burke’s appointment follows the abrupt exit of former chief executive Chris Scoggins last month.
