Declan Kelly, Teneo co-founder/CEO who resigned last May after he became inebriated at a Global Citizen event and engaged in inappropriate behavior, has reemerged.

He has launched Consello, a Madison Avenue advisory focused on merchant banking, corporate development, and mergers and acquisitions.

Since exiting Teneo, Kelly has advised Intel and a handful of clients, according to a report in the Financial Times.

Ireland-born Kelly, 54, began his career as a reporter for Nenagh Guardian, Tipperary Star and Cork Examiner before moving into PR.

He sold Gallagher and Kelly PR to then-Financial Dynamics for about $20M and became head of its US operations.

FD was sold to FTI Consulting in 2006.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appointed Kelly economic envoy to Northern Ireland in 2009.

He did a two-year stint in that post before launching Teneo with Doug Band, who was president of the Clinton Global Initiative in 2011.
