Kieran lives in Cornwall and is Head of B2B Sales at Waterhaul, a social enterprise whose mission is to tackle ghost gear by repurposing it into products that are built for adventure. It is through his work at Waterhaul that his interest and passion for ocean conservation blossomed as well as where he gained an understanding of the problem of ghost gear and the methods of recycling it.

His experience in sales has enabled Kieran to build an extensive network of contacts and gain an understanding of how to establish close partnerships with a range of different businesses and organisations. He has also been able to apply an ‘outside of the box’ way of thinking when it comes to finding creative solutions for solving the ghost gear problem.

Since meeting Howard and working on collaborative projects between Waterhaul and Big Blue Foundation, he has developed a desire to support the ongoing initiatives and aspirations that the Foundation has, and he is looking forward to bringing his skill set to the table to help them with their journey.

In his spare time, Kieran enjoys walking the Cornish coastline, curating his vinyl collection and volunteering at United Cornwall FC, which provides social football sessions for local people.
