Mr Owen O’Brien
On the 30 September 2017 we saw the retirement of our CEO and co-founder of Emerald Freight Express Mr Owen O’Brien. It was Owen’s Leadership, vision and hard work that made the company very successful for the past 37 years (1981-2017) not forgetting his larger than life personality. I think you will all agree that this is some achievement.
We’re delighted to advise that a new management team, namely John McDermott, Anna Barden, Mick Woods and I have been leading the company since Owen’s departure. As the New CEO I’m delighted that I have such experience surrounding me not least in John McDermott who has been by Owen’s side from the beginning of Emerald Freight Express and who has pledged his support to the success of the new team structure.
Owen wishes to express his sincere gratitude to our clients and overseas agents for all your support and friendship down through the years.
Owen was quoted as saying:
‘’Emerald Freight Express has a dynamic new board of Directors with tremendous energy, ambition and dedication, the Directors are extremely excited and determined to drive the company forward into the future, I wish them every success’’.
I want to take this opportunity to thank Owen for all his commitment over the last 37 years and I speak on behalf of all the employees past and present when I wish him all the best in his retirement.
