Celtic Freeport seeks for CEO

The Celtic Freeport announced that it is seeking for first permanent chief executive to take the lead in bringing this vital project to completion.

In particular, the Celtic Freeport aims to unlock the widest possible opportunities for Wales by accelerating innovation and encouraging significant investment, while fast-tracking modern skills for new green industries and national decarbonisation.

Celtic Freeport is a public-private consortium whose partners include Associated British Ports (ABP), Neath Port Talbot Council, Pembrokeshire County Council and the Port of Milford Haven.

According to Celtic Freeport, with development sites throughout Neath Port Talbot and Pembrokeshire, the port will support the development of 16,000 new green jobs, generate US$6.8 billion of new investment, and accelerate the roll-out of floating offshore wind, the hydrogen economy and the production of sustainable fuels.

"The Celtic Freeport has the vision to create a green investment corridor to help drive major inward investment, future skills development and national decarbonisation. As we develop our global development platform, we need a leader to champion new partnerships to bring this vision for change to reality," commented Roger Maggs MBE, chair of Celtic Freeport.
