Port of Waterford
Port of Waterford announces Frank Ronan as new CEO
by The Irish Times

The Port of Waterford has announced the appointment of Mr. Frank Ronan as CEO replacing Mr. Stan McIlvenny who is retiring after 12 years as Chief Executive of the port.

A strategy development manager with Glanbia Ingredients, Frank Ronan was managing director of Wexford Creamery for nine years.  A chartered accountant, Mr Ronan also spent 13 years as finance director with the Stafford Group.

Chairman of the Port of Waterford Company, Des Whelan, said “Frank Ronan will bring a wealth of relevant business leadership and experience to the role. The board look forward to working with him and the entire Port of Waterford team to ensure that the port capitalises fully on the economic recovery that’s now underway. There are tremendous opportunities to grow and diversify the Port’s business and Frank will lead the team in achieving that.” Des Whelan went on to say that the board was “very pleased” with the caliber of applicants when the position was advertised earlier this year. “Frank is the ideal candidate to build on the work done by Stan McIlvenny and to take the port forward as a key export and import gateway for the southeast region and Ireland more widely.”

The chairman also hailed Stan McIlvenny’s contribution as Chief Executive since July of 2003. “The reorganisation that he led and his astute management of the Port through the economic downturn leave the company well-positioned for growth.”
