INTERESTING ‘developments’ in Italy… Harry Fitzsimons former IRA man and director of a property development business which, in the words of his business partner Antonio Velardo in his award winning company:
…despite the fact that the company is now so successful, it really is just over two years old, and came about following a meeting between myself and my now fellow CEO, Harry Fitzsimons. However, whilst that history is a short one it is also a dynamic one and, although we only started with just two people, were able to grow the company to turnover levels of €100 million in less than eight months.
The Italian Police say they have no reason to think there is any link between Mr Fitzsimon’s former life and what they suspect him of doing in southern Italy…
One to keep an eye on…
