Short Sea Director 

Kevin joined the Port of Milford Haven in January 2012 as Short Sea Director, bringing with him over twenty years’ experience in management within the ports, marine-logistics and shipping industry. He has responsibility for the Port's short sea activities at Milford Dock and Pembroke Port.

Having begun his career with Ready Mixed Concrete Group with particular responsibility for sea-dredged aggregates in South Wales, Kevin moved into ferry operations in 1991 when he joined Merchant Ferries as Operations Manager. During his time there he oversaw the development of a new RoRo terminal in Dublin and led over one hundred personnel across three separate terminals.

A few years later, in 1996, Kevin became the founding Director of SeaTruck Ferries Group; an Irish ferry service specialising in the movement of freight. As CEO and Managing Director, his vast and relevant experience in the shipping industry enabled him to guide this new company from startup to its present profitable position incorporating over €400 million of investment and operating five ferries across the Irish sea.

From 2008-2011 prior to joining the Port, Kevin provided consultancy and interim management services to clients such as Dublin Port Company, Peel Ports, Stena, Poole Harbour Commissioners and the Port of Milford Haven.
