Warrenpoint Harbour's chief executive to leave role

By Staff Reporter

Warrenpoint Harbour has started the search for a new chief executive as its existing boss steps down after 12 years. The Co Down port is the second busiest in Northern Ireland in volume of freight handled.

And its hunt for a successor to Peter Conway comes after the Belfast Telegraph revealed that Joe O'Neill, Belfast Harbour commercial director, will replace Roy Adair as chief executive following his retirement.

Head-hunters 4c Executive Search said the successful candidate for the Warrenpoint post would require "entrepreneurial flair.... with demonstrable experience of developing new business opportunities and forging long-lasting relationships with political, business and community stakeholders".

The harbour has indicated it's concerned about the impact of Brexit. Around 50% of its imports and exports begin or end their journey in the Republic.
