SSE Arena (UK)
Robert is the CEO of SSE Arena. He has held the position from 2007. In that time, the organisation has gone through a change process with an emphasis on commercial business at its core.
Robert, a graduate of Queen’s University, Belfast, and the University of Ulster, has worked in leisure and property development at home and abroad for the last 30 years.
During that time, he has demonstrated a flair for re-developing and re-invigorating businesses to new levels of performance. Under his leadership, the Trust has undertaken a major property development opportunity as well as re-structuring relationships and profit centres across the entire scheme.
He relies on his team and has a very supportive board who share his vision to make sure of the SSE's rightful place as the gateway to Titanic Quarter, and continues to build on its tremendous success.
Robert has also recently been awarded a visiting Professorship from the University of Ulster Business School.
