About the Lumeta Team

 

Pat Donnellan

In Memoriam

Pat Donnellan – Chief Executive Officer

Pat Donnellan passed away unexpectedly on February 18, 2018 from a rapid form of ALS. Over the last five years, Pat was the driving force behind the success and growth of Lumeta and the entire Lumeta team. Pat always showed a genuine interest in every single individual he spoke to and honestly would do whatever he could for them. In that way, we felt like his extended family at Lumeta. He was energetic, honest, forthcoming, self-effacing, and someone you would want to share a pint with. Words will never be able to capture how much we all miss him and his never ending positive spirit. Despite that, as a company, Lumeta will continue to drive “onwards and upwards”, just as he would have said to all of us and, “keep pushing forward and you will find success”.
