A new board member with more than 40 years’ experience working across a multitude of engineering and economic projects has been appointed by Falmouth Harbour Commissioners (FHC).
After an extensive recruitment process, Colin Jarvis joins the eight-strong board; including most recent recruit, HR consultant, Carrie Gilmore who joined six months ago.
Following a career spanning the civil engineering, transportation and regeneration sectors – on behalf of public and private organisations – Jarvis brings a wealth of senior project management experience to the role.
During his most recent position – as project director at the Cornwall Development Company – Jarvis was involved in a number of local projects, including the Port of Falmouth masterplan, the Penryn river study work and supporting and facilitating private and public investment into Falmouth Docks.
Commenting on the appointment, FHC chairman, Dave Ellis, said: “Colin’s extensive experience of planning and implementing a number of projects at a senior strategic management level will really add value and complement the existing board members’ breadth of skills.”
