Sustainable Cornwall-based fashion brand Celtic & Co has announced Martin Hayball as its new Group Head of Finance.

Hayball joins the brand from Seasalt Cornwall, where he served as Head of Financial Planning & Analysis since September 2021. Prior to this, he held various senior financial roles at Red One, Pennon Group and South West Water.

Earlier this month, Seasalt Cornwall scrapped plans for its sale process despite being close to striking a deal with Next.

James Williams, Managing Director at Celtic & Co, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Martin at a pivotal time for our business as we build on the success of the last two years. He brings a wealth of experience to the role and will be a great addition to our leadership team.”

Established in 1990 by husband and wife team Nick and Kath Whitworth, Celtic & Co is an online retailer which specialises in knitwear and sheepskin products, including slippers and boots, which are handmade in its factory in Newquay.

In April 2022, Celtic & Co appointed Katy Burnett as Head of Product and Buying.
