Commenting on his appointment, John Mullins said “I am honoured with the
trust placed in me by Minister Varadkar. I look forward to my new role as
Chairman of the Port of Cork, particularly at this crucial period for the
company as it advances proposals for new infrastructure required to service
business for the next twenty years. I strongly believe that the Port of
Cork is central to a brighter economic future for the Munster region and
the Irish economy as a whole, given the value it brings in moving goods to
market for both customers and businesses. As one of Ireland’s core ports, I
will work to ensure that the Port of Cork continues to grow and improve
competitiveness.”

development of port facilities as we consolidate our position as the
premier port in the South of Ireland”.****
