NIALL DUFF
Managing Director & Founder

Niall’s Management career began at the Burlington Hotel.

Then as a relief manager for Inn Leisure Ltd he devised the framework for his coveted methodology.

He then returned to Ireland to manage Johnnie Fox’s Pub, Glencullen.

Nialls’ groundbreaking management techniques transformed Fox’s Pub from a quirky backwater local, to the finely tuned cash making institution it is now.

Niall was responsible for setting up the Guinness Island Development in Germany, which became the highest turnover Irish pub in mainland Europe.

Niall then held a senior management role in the Quinn Group, before going out on his own.

EVG was set up in 2002 and quickly had The 12th Lock in Castleknock turning over on average €2.5 million a year.

This was the start of an expansion that eventually had five high turnover operations under its wing.

JAMES O’DONOGHUE
Operations Director & Managing Partner

James began his career as a Bartender and Sommelier in the Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club, Dublin 4, before seeing the world as a Cocktail Bartender on the esteemed MV QE2.

On his return to Dublin, he started his management career in one of Dublin’s finest traditional pubs, Bowes of Fleet Street.

After travelling to find new concepts for bars and clubs took on the General Manager role in one of the highest turnover Gentlemen’s Clubs in Perth Western Australia and increased turnover, gross profit and reduced costs dramatically over a twelve month period while controlling over 80 staff.

He then progressed to become the Beverage Operations Manager at the award winning Unique Dining Company, and from there was involved from concept to creation of The Palace Bar and Club in Navan.

James joined EVG as Managing Partner & Director of Operations, and is responsible for the continued success and growth for the company, year on year.

His particular skillset involves a no-nonsense approach to problem solving using proven techniques to address issues such as Cash & Stock loss prevention as well as a comfort “hold hand” factor to our clients.
