Following Norman Apsley's decision to retire as CEO of Catalyst Inc, Belfast, the search is on for a new CEO.
Their advert reads:
Catalyst Inc. believes that innovation has the power to transform Northern Ireland into one of Europe’s most entrepreneurial and inclusive knowledge economies by 2030.
Achieving this vision requires a relentless focus on maximising the potential in health and life science, data analytics, automated intelligence, food science, creative media and other emerging tech sectors. As a world-class innovation ecosystem, we provide the home, networks and empathy to nurture the talent required to develop peerless products and services.
Such far-reaching ambition requires visionary leadership. With inspirational guidance and direction over the past 18 years we’ve made momentous progress. We now require a new visionary CEO to take us even further. An experienced commercial strategist; an innovation champion; a relationship builder; a straight-talking pragmatist; a fearless free-thinker.
These qualities are rare enough on their own, so finding them in one person will not be easy. However, it’s a search we relish, because we know that putting the right leader in place is fundamental to achieving our vision of a community of local innovators so powerful that it can change the world.
Candidates are invited to email a curriculum vitae with covering letter, detailing their relevant experience and outlining why they believe they are perfectly placed to become our next CEO.
Closing date for applications is 12noon, Monday 9th July 2018.
